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.

Microsoft Demonstrates Docker in Build 2015 Keynote Address

Today Microsoft and Docker took the opportunity to talk about and demonstrate some of the progress we have been able to make together over the past 6 months. This culminated in to showing for the first time at Microsoft Build the Docker Engine running successfully on Windows Server. Like many companies just starting to work with Microsoft, we had some reservations about what we could ultimately accomplish together.

Announcing Docker 1.2.0

The hardworking folk at Docker, Inc. are proud to announce the release of version 1.2.0 of Docker. We’ve made improvements throughout the Docker platform, including updates to Docker Engine, Docker Hub, and our documentation. Highlights include these new features: restart policies We added a –restart flag to docker run to specify a restart policy for your container. Currently, there are three policies available: no – Do not restart the container if it dies. (default) on-failure – Restart the container if it exits with a non-zero exit code. Can also accept an optional maximum restart count (e.g. on-failure:5). always – Always restart the container no matter what exit code is returned. This deprecates the –restart flag on the Docker daemon. A few examples: Redis will endlessly try to restart if the container exits docker run –restart=always redis If redis exits with a non-zero Continue reading…
