Webinar Q&A: Docker Basics – Orchestration

As the need for greater agility and portability drives the growth of containerization within enterprises world-wide, container orchestration tools have become increasingly important. With multiple nodes running multiple containers, enterprises now need a way to manage and deploy containers at scale. This is where orchestration is valuable. Orchestration is the ability to manage and automatically schedule container deployments onto nodes. Tools like Docker Swarm, a scalable Docker engine clustering solution, and Docker Compose, a powerful tool for deploying multi-container applications, help make orchestration seriously easy for users. These Docker native tools are the industry’s top orchestration solutions for Dockerized environments.

Docker 1.10: New Compose file, improved security, networking and much more!

We’re pleased to announce Docker 1.10, jam-packed with stuff you’ve been asking for. It’s now much easier to define and run complex distributed apps with Docker Compose. The power that Compose brought to orchestrating containers is now available for setting up networks and volumes. On your development machine, you can set up your app with multiple network tiers and complex storage configurations, replicating how you might set it up in production. You can then take that same configuration from development, and use it to run your app on CI, on staging, and right through into production. Check out the blog post about the new Compose file to find out more.

Compose 1.6: New Compose file for defining networks and volumes

In the previous version of Docker Engine we added a completely new system for managing networks and volumes, and we’re pleased to announce full support for these features in Docker Compose. Compose files used to describe just one thing: the services that make up your distributed application. We’ve now added networks and volumes to the mix, allowing you to describe much more complex applications. You can set up your app on your development machine with multiple network tiers and complex storage configurations, replicating how you might set it up in production. You can then take that same configuration from development, and use it to run your app on CI, on staging, and right through into production.

Docker at Connect(); // 2015

Connect(); //2015, Microsoft’s virtual event devoted to developers, happened one day after DockerCon EU 2015, and started with an epic demo where Scott Hanselman deployed an ASP.NET 5 app from Visual Studio to a Docker container on Azure on Linux.

Getting Started with Docker Toolbox and Compose

Today at DockerCon EU 2015, I ran through a demo of running and developing an app from a fresh computer using Docker Toolbox and Compose. This was to show how easy it is for new developers to get started when you run your development environments with Docker.

Announcing Docker Toolbox: The fastest way to get Docker running in development

Today we’re announcing a new installer for Mac OS X and Windows called Docker Toolbox. We’ve been hearing again and again that it can be difficult to get up and started with Docker in development, particularly when you’ve got your app defined with Compose and then have to install Compose separately. With the popularity of Compose, Kitematic and Boot2Docker, we realized we needed to make all the pieces work better together.

Announcing Compose 1.3, Swarm 0.3 and Machine 0.3

As with the last update to Compose, Swarm and Machine, we’re releasing versions alongside the new version of Engine at DockerCon 2015. In all three projects we’ve made some big steps towards production readiness, stability, and new integrations such as Mesos support in Swarm.

Docker Tutorial 10 – Docker Compose

This is a casual Docker tutorial series. We will start out first with very simple sessions on how to install and use the docker run command. In future videos we will hit more advanced topics.     This tenth video talks about Docker Compose. We will cover basic installation and show how to create YML files to compose containers. Will will also use an Nginx/Tomcat stack as one of the examples.
