Docker App and CNAB

Docker App is a new tool we spoke briefly about back at DockerCon US 2018. We’ve been working on `docker-app` to make container applications simpler to share and easier to manage across different teams and between different environments, and we open sourced it so you can already download Docker App from GitHub at https://github.com/docker/app. In talking to others about problems they’ve experienced sharing and collaborating on the broad area we call “applications” we came to a realisation: it’s a more general problem that others have been working on too. That’s why we’re happy to collaborate with Microsoft on the new Cloud Native Application Bundle (CNAB) specification. Today’s cloud native applications typically use different technologies, each with their own toolchain. Maybe you’re using ARM templates and Helm charts, or CloudFormation and Compose, or Terraform and Ansible. There is no single solution Continue reading…

Docker at DEVIntersection 2018

    Docker will be at DEVIntersection 2018 in Las Vegas the first week in December. DEVIntersection now in its fifth year, brings Microsoft leaders, engineers and industry experts together to educate, network, and share their expertise with developers. This year DEVIntersection will have a Developer, SQL Server and AI/Azure tracks integrated into a single event. Docker be featured at DEVIntersection via the following sessions: Modernizing .NET Applications with Docker on Azure Derrick Miller, a Docker Senior Solutions Engineer, will deliver a session focused on using containers as a modernization path for traditional applications, including how to select Windows Server 2008 applications for containerization, implementation tips, and common gotchas. Depend on Docker – Get It Done with Docker on Azure Alex Iankoulski, a Docker Captain, will highlight how how Baker Hughes, a GE Company, uses Docker to transform software development Continue reading…

Introducing Docker’s Windows Server Application Migration Program

  Last week, we announced the Docker Windows Server Application Migration Program, designed to help companies quickly and easily migrate and modernize legacy Windows Server 2008 applications while driving continuous innovation across any application, anywhere. We recognize that Windows Server 2008 is one of the most widely used operating systems today and the coming end-of-support in January 2020 leaves IT organizations with few viable options to cost-effectively secure their legacy applications and data. The Docker Windows Server Application Migration Program represents the best and only way to containerize and secure legacy Windows Server applications while enabling software-driven business transformation. With this new program, customers get: Docker Enterprise: Leading Container Platform and only one for Windows Server applications. Docker Enterprise is the leading container platform in the industry– familiar to millions of developers and IT professionals. It’s also the only one that runs Continue reading…

Video Series: Modernizing Java Apps for Developers Part 2

Moving a monolithic application to a modern cloud architecture can be difficult and often results in a greenfield development effort. However, it is possible to move towards a cloud architecture using Docker Enterprise Edition with no code changes and gain portability, security and efficiency in the process.   In the first post in this series, we discussed how you don’t need to do a full re-architecture of your application to microservices when using Docker Enterprise Edition. In the second installment of the series, I go into the details of containerization of the application. This process builds containers using the application code as-is. I’ll follow three simple rules: Keep the existing architecture Keep the save version of the OS, components and application Keep deployment simple, i.e. static not elastic I’ll also demonstrate how to use multi-stage build file to compile the code and deploy it to application Continue reading…

Video Series: Modernizing .NET Apps for Developers

 Docker Enterprise Edition (EE)  is the container platform for modernizing your existing applications, and running them in the cloud or on-premises. You can take monoliths and run them in containers with no code changes, and that gets you portability, security and efficiency. Running in Docker is also a great starting point for modernizing the application architecture. You can breaking down the monolith into smaller, independent components which makes it easier to deploy updates, manage scale and introduce new technologies. This new video series covers app modernization, for .NET developers and architects. It walks through the evolution of a monolithic ASP.NET 3.5 app to a distributed application running across multiple containers, using the Docker platform to plug everything together and adding features with great open-source software from the Docker ecosystem. This is not a full re-architecture to microservices – for large .NET apps Continue reading…

Convince your manager to send you to DockerCon

Has it sunk in yet that DockerCon is in roughly 2 months? That’s right, this year we gather in April as a community and ecosystem in Austin, Texas for 3 days of deep learning and networking (with a side serving of Docker fun). DockerCon is the annual community and industry event for makers and operators of next generation distributed apps built with containers. If Docker is important to your daily workflow or your business, you and your team (reach out for group discounts) should attend this conference to stay up to date on the latest progress with the Docker platform and ecosystem. Do you really want to go to DockerCon, but are having a hard time convincing your manager on pulling the trigger to send you? Have you already explained that sessions, training and hands-on exercises are definitely worth the financial Continue reading…
