Continuous Integration (CI) and Continuous Delivery (CD) methodologies are key traits of a modern software development practice. Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) can be a catalyst for this DevOps mindset, integrating with your preferred tools and existing practices to improve the quality and speed at which innovation is delivered. In our recent webinar, Integrating CI/CD with Docker Enterprise Edition, we walked through an example where a developer is using GitLab as the CI tool of choice. If you missed the webinar, you can watch the demo here: Here are some of the top questions from the webinar: Q: Can you explain the…

3Blades offers data science collaboration services. In addition to offering task based project management features, 3Blades also allows users to spawn custom workspace, model and data source instances within the context of their projects. A variety of resource configurations are available for different instance types. For example, a user can launch an RStudio IDE workspace with a 1 vCPU and 2 GB of memory and another Hadoop datasource instance with 2vCPU and 4 GB of memory. Docker is a natural fit to enable this type of flexibility. It didn’t take very long for our team to go ‘all in’ with…

So you want to innovate faster, right? Continuous integration and continuous deployment (CI/CD) are some of the most common, but impactful use cases for teams who are looking to Dockerize their environment. The key to CI/CD is being able to automate the workflow, while still keeping the necessary features in place (like performing tests and leveraging staging environments) to assure the quality of your applications.

Portability. This is perhaps one of the greatest characteristics of our Docker Containers-as-a-Service platform. After all, in some way it’s the reason why Docker has become as popular as it has today. In just 3 years, we have seen over 2 billion+ Docker Hub pulls, 400,000+ unique Docker Hub users, 200,000+ Dockerized applications and thousands of customers. A large part of the adoption hinges upon portability, making it clear that portability is a huge part of what our users are looking for. It provides the flexibility both developers and IT operations team need in order to succeed at their jobs….

Docker is pleased to have been included in Gartner’s latest “Cool Vendors in DevOps, 2015“report, published April 21. In the report, Gartner notes: “As virtualization and cloud applications grow beyond being single images run on premise to being comprised of multiple tiers that can be run and scaled in a hybrid cloud, new approaches are needed to reduce complexity.” Docker is focused on reducing the complexities of building, shipping and running distributed applications, whether deployed on prem or in the cloud. We blieve our inclusion in the report reflects the progress that we’ve made over the last year to develop the…
