Enabling Portability of Workloads And Fighting Lock-In, with Docker

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. But what exactly is portability? At Docker, we define portability as the ability to move workloads across different infrastructure environments, maintaining consistency while enabling Hybrid Cloud and multi-cloud for the enterprise. Portability is the magic that allows enterprises to move Continue reading…

Docker Online Meetup #34: Containers as a Service (CaaS)

Yesterday, we had Patrick Chanezon, Technical Staff Member here at Docker Inc., present during our Docker Online Meetup on Containers as a Service (CaaS). With Docker, developers can own what goes on inside the container and how the containers behave together as an application. Meanwhile, IT Pros can focus on managing the required infrastructure to run, secure and scale these applications. Containers as a Service is a model where IT organizations and developers can work together to build, ship and run their applications anywhere. CaaS enables an IT secured and managed application environment consisting of content and infrastructure, from which developers are able build and deploy applications in a self service manner. Below are the recorded video and slides from the Docker Online Meetup.

Video: Docker Containers-as-a-Service Walkthrough

This has been a huge week for us here at Docker! Yesterday, we announced the release of Docker Datacenter, which brings container management and deployment services to the enterprise with a production-ready Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform that is supported by Docker and hosted locally, behind the firewall. The beauty of the Docker CaaS platform is that it satisfies both the needs of IT operations teams as well as developers. IT teams are given control and visibility of their environment, while developers can self-service and build applications quickly, uninhibited by IT operations teams, making it easier to embrace DevOps within the enterprise. In the video below, Technical Marketing Engineer Mike Coleman provides a walkthrough of Docker CaaS, and how the platform enables the enterprise by giving them the agility, portability and control they need to build applications quickly, deploy them into production, Continue reading…

“Everything agnostic” is the only requirement for Containers as a Service (CaaS)

With Containers as a Service (CaaS) IT organizations and developers can work together in a secured and managed application environment to build, ship and run their applications anywhere. In last week’s blog post, we introduced Containers as a Service and discussed how it can provide a modern platform. In this post, we discuss in more detail the characteristics that uniquely power CaaS. The reason developers don’t adopt locked down platforms is because software development is an exercise in both discovery and creation. It is critical to keep this in mind when considering application platforms.

Containers as a Service (CaaS) as your new platform for application development and operations

Developers don’t adopt locked down platforms. That one simple statement summarizes decades of tension between IT operations and development teams. Along the spectrum of control versus agility are the desires and needs of IT operations teams responsible for keeping environments up and running and compliant to regulations and the needs of developers who are responsible for building software to attract, engage and maintain customers. Most times you had to choose between control or freedom and could not have both.
