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.

Containerd: a daemon to control runC

As we build out Docker’s infrastructure plumbing, we are committed to releasing these plumbing components as open source to help the community. Today we’re releasing a new daemon to control runC called: containerd. It’s built for performance and density, and will eventually be built into Docker Engine.

DockerCon EU 2015: Docker Trusted Registry 1.4 with Integrated Content Trust and Universal Control Plane

What an exciting Second Day! Just when you thought you couldn’t get enough of Docker, Docker, Docker…we’ve added more! In today’s keynote, we talked about some amazing products – from Project Nautilus, the new image scanning and vulnerability detection service for Official Repos on Docker Hub, to the upgrades to Docker Hub Auto Build service to how to use these together with Tutum for an end-to-end Containers as a Service platform, all available in the cloud today. And for those that need on-premise control of their own destiny we have a new release of Docker Trusted Registry that integrates Docker Content Trust, for image signing, integrity and authenticity.

Announcing Docker Trusted Registry 1.4 – New User Interface, Integrated Content Trust and Support for Docker Engine 1.9

The Docker Trusted Registry is a commercial registry service that you can run on-premise or in your virtual private cloud (VPC) to store and manage your Docker images. Trusted Registry is available in conjunction with a commercially supported Docker Engine to provide you with the peace of mind and support needed for your application environment.

Get Docker on Demand for Amazon Web Services

Docker Trusted Registry, Docker Engine and Business Day Support available for a free 30 day trial to build, ship and run distributed applications in Amazon Web Services. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a popular place for companies of all sizes to run their test farms and production clusters. Many of the world’s most popular websites like Yelp, Gilt and Spotify run at scale on AWS using Docker.   We started simplifying the developer workflow earlier this year with an AWS driver for Docker Machine to automate the provisioning of AWS instances and deploying Docker Engine with the single command ‘machine create’. At DockerCon, we added Docker Trusted Registry AMI on the AWS Marketplace to allow development teams to store, manage and collaborate on their Docker images with a registry service deployable in your AWS VPC, and today we take that Continue reading…

Introducing the Technical Preview of Docker Engine for Windows Server 2016

written by Arnaud Porterie, Docker Senior Engineering Manager   It’s here… Never been more stoked before then when I started the docker daemon on Windows today eeeeeeeeeeeee — jessie frazelle (@frazelledazzell) August 11, 2015 As core engineer on the Docker Engine team, I naturally spend most of time in Linux. Recently that has been changing: in April, we released a Windows version of the Docker client. Through this process, we have been working closely with Microsoft developers and showing progress along the way, like what was demonstrated at the Build conference and DockerCon 2015. One question I get a lot besides “When are you merging my PR?” is “When will Docker run on Windows?” The first question requires a blog post of it’s own… but the second question now has a rather exciting answer. This week marks a huge leap forward Continue reading…

Announcing Docker 1.8: Content Trust, Toolbox, and Updates to Registry and Orchestration

We’re thrilled to announce Docker 1.8 with support for image signing, a new installer, as well as incremental improvements to Engine, Compose, Swarm, Machine and Registry. You’ve been telling us that you want Docker to be more extensible and composed of smaller, standalone components. We hear you loud and clear. In June, we announced our intention to release runC as a separate piece of plumbing. With this release we’re taking another step towards that goal. The system powering image signing has been implemented as a separate piece of plumbing called Notary, and volume plugins, an experimental feature in 1.7, has now been promoted to the stable release. Across the board we’ve been making the usual quality improvements – something we know is important to all of you running Docker in production.

Docker <3 Oracle Solaris Zones

written by Brian Goff, Technical Alliances at Docker, Inc. Integration allows Oracle users to easily distribute applications built and deployed in Oracle Solaris Zones Over the last year, I’ve had the opportunity to work closely with Oracle on a few projects: • Full Docker Engine support on Oracle Linux 6 and 7 • Official Image for Oracle Linux, maintained by Oracle, on Docker Hub • Collaboration on the official Image for MySQL The Official Repos program is a curated set of images by the Docker community, for the Docker community. Along the way Oracle has proven to be a great contributor to this community, maintaining their Oracle Linux image and actively collaborating with the community to ensure the quality of the official MySQL image. They also provide the builds and repositories required for creating both of these images.
