Docker for the Enterprise with Docker Datacenter

Businesses today are digital and fundamentally powered by applications – software that drives revenue, engages with customers and runs their operations. The process of making that software has, until recently, been long and cumbersome.  The addition of Docker and containerization, a new software supply chain is enabled to bring agility, portability and control together into the enterprise.  From security and compliance to shipping more software faster to migrating workloads around sites for the best cost to performance ratio, Docker Datacenter is helping businesses transform their software supply chain. At DockerCon in Seattle, business of all sizes are sharing their stories Dockering for transformation in development, CI and production environments for all kinds of apps.  In this post, I wanted to highlight those companies who are using Docker Datacenter.   HealthDirect Australia: Docker in Production, Look No Hands! Healthdirect Australia was Continue reading…

Using Docker Datacenter for Enterprise-Ready Orchestration – The SA Home Loans Story

Orchestration for dockerized applications in production has been a huge reason for why today’s enterprises have begun to leverage Docker Datacenter. Universal Control Plane, the management layer of the Docker Container-as-a-Service platform delivers production-level orchestration. The tool enables enterprise IT ops teams to manage, deploy and scale their applications across their multi-node clusters. These clusters can be comprised of nodes that exist both in cloud providers like Azure and AWS as well as in the datacenter. Universal Control Plane comes with Docker Swarm embedded into it, giving it the power to create clusters and scale applications across their environment, regardless of infrastructure type, all with support from the Docker team.

Kick the Tires on Docker Datacenter with DDC-In-A-Box!

Docker Datacenter (DDC) is a powerful solution for managing your containerized applications in a production environment. But what if you could kick the tires of DDC on your laptop with just a single script command? Welcome to DDC-In-A-Box! DDC-In-A-Box is an evaluation script that I wrote which creates a single virtual machine containing Docker Engine, Universal Control Plane (UCP) and Docker Trusted Registry (DTR). The products are licensed using your own license and integrated with each other so you can test out the push/pull integration between UCP and DTR.

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…

Tutorial: Role Based Access Control in Universal Control Plane

It’s been an exciting time for us since we released Docker Datacenter a couple of week ago, which included the GA of Universal Control Plane (UCP), our on-premises or VPC deployable management and orchestration solution for containers. Thank you for the enthusiastic response, and we’ll continue to deliver enterprise-grade feature sets into the Docker Datacenter platform. One such feature we delivered in UCP 1.0 was Role Based Access Control (RBAC)—deciding and enforcing who gets access to which resources. This is a really important and complex component of commercial IT infrastructure. This tutorial walks through how the feature is implemented in UCP and demonstrating it with an example.

#SwarmWeek: HealthDirect Uses Docker Swarm for Blue Green Deployments

  Healthdirect Australia provides all Australians with access to health information and advice, no matter where they live, or what time of the day or night it is, they can talk to a health professional, find trusted advice online about the appropriate care for their health issue and find the closest local services that are open when they need them. Our Docker journey originally started with the open source edition and early on we invested in building out our own tooling to support infrastructure and application provisioning. Recently we transitioned to Docker Datacenter consisting of Engine, Trusted Registry and Universal Control Plane (which comes with Swarm). Having an integrated end-to-end platform with management, plugins and ecosystem integrations available right out of the box was the deciding factor for us. Docker Datacenter provides us with a solid foundation for our application Continue reading…
