Desigual Transforms the In-Store Customer Experience with Docker Enterprise

  At DockerCon Barcelona, we awarded Desigual with the first ever Rising Star Docker Customer Innovation Award. The Desigual team earned the award by building a brand new in-store shopping assistant application in just 5 months thanks to Docker Enterprise. The digital shopping assistant is already deployed at over 100 stores, and is being rolled out to all of Desigual’s 500-plus clothing stores worldwide in the coming months. In this 2 minute video, Desigual gives the highlights of their story: https://youtu.be/BKbD-gW6yI0 The Desigual team analyzed existing sales data and found that of lost in-store sales, 60 percent were because a particular size was out of stock, and 40 percent were because a product wasn’t available in the catalog. They wanted to create a customer-first shopping experience that would stand out among retail clothing brands and help store associates recommend alternatives Continue reading…

Docker Certified Logging Containers and Plugins from Partners

    The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations enterprises an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher.   In this review, we’re looking at Docker Logging Containers and Plugins. Docker Enterprise provides built-in logging drivers to help users get information from docker nodes, running containers and services. The Docker Engine also exposes a Docker Logging Plugin API for use by Partner Docker logging plugins. The user’s needs are solved by innovations from the extensive Docker ecosystem that extend Docker’s logging capabilities which provide complete log management solutions that include searching, visualizing, monitoring, and alerting. These solutions are validated by both Docker Continue reading…

Docker Certified Containers from Monitoring Partners

  The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations enterprises an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher. In this review, we’re looking at solutions to monitor Docker containers. Docker enables developers to iterate faster with software architectures consisting of many microservices. This poses a challenge to traditional monitoring solutions as the target processes are no longer statically allocated or tied to particular hosts. Monitoring solutions are now expected to track ephemeral and rapidly scaling sets of containers. The Docker Engine exposes APIs for container metadata, lifecycle events, and key performance metrics. Partner Monitoring solutions  collect both system and Docker container events and metrics Continue reading…

Docker Certified Plugins From Networking Partners

The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize Containers and Plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations enterprises an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher.   In this review, we’re looking at Docker Network Plugins. Networking has long been a vertical in the enterprise cloud and data center that has no shortage of complexity. Just as an overarching goal of Docker Enterprise is to make deploying and operating containers as simple as possible, the same goal applies to making Swarm networking as simple as possible. This powerful abstraction of complexity, is applicable regardless of whether in the customers data center or spread across multiple clouds. In some cases Docker Enterprise solves Continue reading…

Docker Certified Applications from Storage Partners

The Docker Certified Technology Program is designed for ecosystem partners and customers to recognize containers and plugins that excel in quality, collaborative support and compliance. Docker Certification gives organizations an easy way to run trusted software and components in containers on the Docker Enterprise container platform with support from both Docker and the publisher.   In this review, we’re looking at Docker Volume Plugins. In any production Docker Enterprise  deployment, it is important to have the ability to manage storage for persistent applications. While it is  possible to use traditional SAN and NAS solutions directly with Docker Enterprise with Swarm orchestration, it is actually much easier and more convenient to manage volumes through the Docker CLI and management interfaces by specifying a Docker-native volume driver so users can manage volumes on demand. Check out the latest certified Docker Volume Plugins that are now available from our partners on Docker Store: HPE Nimble Storage Docker Volume Plugin Continue reading…
