Docker Leads OCI Release of v1.0 Runtime and Image Format Specifications

Today marks an important milestone for the Open Container Initiative (OCI) with the release of the OCI v1.0 runtime and image specifications – a journey that Docker has been central in driving and navigating over the last two years. It has been our goal to provide low-level standards as building blocks for the community, customers and the broader industry. To understand the significance of this milestone, let’s take a look at the history of Docker’s growth and progress in developing industry-standard container technologies. The History of Docker Runtime and Image Donations to the OCI Docker’s image format and container runtime quickly emerged as the de facto standard following its release as an open source project in 2013. We recognized the importance of turning it over to a neutral governance body to fuel innovation and prevent fragmentation in the industry. Working Continue reading…

Moby Summit LA alongside Open Source Summit North America

Since the Moby Project introduction at DockerCon 2017 in Austin last April, the Moby Community has been hard at work to further define the Moby project, improve its components (runC, containerd, LinuxKit, InfraKit, SwarmKit, Libnetwork and Notary) and fine processes and clear communication channels. All project maintainers are developing these aspects in the open with the support of the community. Contributors are getting involved on GitHub, giving feedback on the Moby Project Discourse forum and asking questions on Slack. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for the Moby Project components have been formed based on the Kubernetes model for Open Source collaboration. These SIGs ensure a high level of transparency and synchronization between project maintainers and a community of heterogeneous contributors. In addition to these online channels and meetings, the Moby community hosts regular meetups and summits. Check out the videos and slides from the last Continue reading…

containerd joins the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Today, we’re excited to announce that containerd – Docker’s core container runtime – has been accepted by the Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) as an incubating project in the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). containerd’s acceptance into the CNCF alongside projects such as Kubernetes, gRPC and Prometheus comes three months after Docker, with support from the five largest cloud providers, announced its intent to contribute the project to a neutral foundation in the first quarter of this year. In the process of spinning containerd out of Docker and contributing it to CNCF there are a few changes that come along with it.  For starters, containerd now has a logo; see below. In addition, we have a new @containerd twitter handle. In the next few days, we’ll be moving the containerd GitHub repository to a separate GitHub organization. Similarly, the containerd slack channel will be moved to separate slack team which will soon available at containerd.slack.com containerd has Continue reading…

Docker to donate containerd to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Today, Docker announced its intention to donate the containerd project to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Back in December 2016, Docker spun out its core container runtime functionality into a standalone component, incorporating it into a separate project called containerd, and announced we would be donating it to a neutral foundation early this year. Today we took a major step forward towards delivering on our commitment to the community by following the Cloud Native Computing Foundation process and presenting a proposal to the CNCF Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) for containerd to become a CNCF project. Given the consensus we have been building with the community, we are hopeful to get a positive affirmation from the TOC before CloudNativeCon/KubeCon later this month.   Over the past 4 years, the adoption of containers with Docker has triggered an unprecedented wave of innovation in our industry: Continue reading…

Why I am excited to join the Cloud Native Computing Foundation Technical Oversight Board

Docker’s mission is to build tools of mass innovation. To achieve this goal, we collaborate with the best developers in the world, working with the open source projects and organizations tackling the various aspects of containerization: the Docker open source projects with more than 2,000 contributors, the Apache Software Foundation with Apache Aurora, the Linux Foundation with the MirageOS, the Open Container Initiative (OCI) collaborative projects and the Cloud Foundry foundation. It is through these collaborations that we have been able to democratize complex technologies like OS containers and orchestrators such as Docker Swarm to make them accessible to organizations of all sizes.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation is getting started today

In July Docker became a Founding Member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Today the CNCF gets started with a ratified open governance structure including a Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) to direct technical decisions, for which nominations are open.

Open Governance and Collaboration in the Ecosystem is #Trending

Docker is a Founding Member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) The past four weeks has been unparalleled in terms of open, collaborative activity among the ecosystem around container-based technologies. It started with Docker’s efforts in driving the Open Container Initiative (OCI); which was formerly known as the Open Container Project) in concert with Microsoft, Red Hat, Google, and nearly 20 other companies to deliver an open, universal container image format and runtime under the auspices of the Linux Foundation. The response to the OCI has been incredibly positive, and the OCI has already been making huge strides in code creation, spec creation, governance, and membership; please stay tuned for pending updates!
