Cisco Now Reselling Docker Enterprise Edition

Today we are excited to announce the expansion of our partnership with the availability of Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), our container management platform on the Cisco Global Price List (GPL) and the release of the latest Cisco Validated Design (CVD): Cisco UCS Infrastructure with Contiv and Docker Enterprise Edition for Container Management Now customers can purchase Docker EE directly from Cisco and their joint resellers to jumpstart their new year’s resolution for a more modern application architecture, reduce IT costs and redirect saving to innovation projects.  And with our latest CVD for Cisco UCS compute infrastructure with secure container networking fabric, Contiv,  we’ve provided a roadmap on how to get started so customers and partners can gain a faster, more reliable and predictable implementation of Docker EE. For enterprises looking to use Docker’s container management platform but not sure where to start, Continue reading…

Using Docker to Scale Operational Intelligence at Splunk

Splunk wants to make machine data accessible, usable and valuable to everyone. With over 14,000 customers in 110 countries, providing the best software for visualizing machine data involves hours and hours of testing against multiple supported platforms and various configurations. For Mike Dickey, Sr. Director in charge of engineering infrastructure at Splunk, the challenge was that 13 different engineering teams in California and Shanghai had contributed to test infrastructure sprawl, with hundreds of different projects and plans that were all being managed manually. At DockerCon Europe, Mike and Harish Jayakumar, Docker Solutions Engineer, shared how Splunk leveraged Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) to dramatically improve build and deployment times on their test infrastructure, converge on a unified Continuous Integration (CI) workflow, and how they’ve now grown to 600 bare-metal servers deploying tens of thousands of Docker containers per day.

Putting Docker Enterprise Edition on the Map with Kadaster and Capgemini

 As a government organization for the Netherlands, Kadaster is responsible for collecting and registering property and land rights, ships, aircraft and telecom networks. An important service for its citizens, registry information is available predominantly through online web services. Beginning in 2011, Kadaster created a vision for their next generation technology platform which included a combination of SaaS, IaaS, and PaaS services. Today, Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) is an essential part of this solution. At DockerCon Europe, Rick Peters from CapGemini discussed how they worked with Kadaster to deliver an agile application platform that now runs some of the most demanding workloads for the Dutch organization. You can watch the talk here:   Growth of Private Cloud Fuels Hunger for New Technologies Beginning in 2012, Kadaster created one of the most successful private clouds in the Netherlands.

Shifting Legacy WebLogic Apps to Docker Enterprise Edition for Improved Operations

Founded in 1792, Alm. Brand is a Danish insurance and banking company headquartered in Copenhagen, Denmark and one of the oldest companies to have ever presented at any DockerCon. Sune Keller, an IT architect, and Loke Johannessen, Systems Specialist, rode their bikes to DockerCon Europe 2017 to demonstrate how they helped lift and shift their legacy WebLogic applications to Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE).  You can watch their entire talk here: Seeking Operational Stability for Legacy Apps Alm. Brand started working with Docker EE after hearing about it at DockerCon 2015 (known as Docker Datacenter back then). After successfully deploying the first set of new greenfield apps in their Docker EE environment, Alm. Brand wanted to tackle their existing WebLogic applications which were causing the operations team the biggest headaches. The team operated the WebLogic applications in a large cluster, Continue reading…

Swarm Orchestration in Docker Enterprise Edition

At DockerCon Europe, we announced that the next release of Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) would include Kubernetes integration. We’re really excited about bringing Kubernetes to our customer base and continuing to increase our involvement within the community. But it’s equally important for us to note that Swarm orchestration is not going away. Swarm forms an integral cluster management component of the Docker EE platform; in addition, Swarm will operate side-by-side with Kubernetes in a Docker EE cluster, allowing customers to select, based on their needs, the most suitable orchestration tool at application deployment time. Here are just a few reasons that Swarm is integral to the Docker EE solution: Support our existing customers and ecosystem integrations Provide customers the flexibility in choice of orchestrators Provide secure and highly available clustering architecture Existing Customers and Ecosystem Integrations Docker now has Continue reading…

Docker Enterprise Edition Certified as Kubernetes Conformant

Yesterday, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation® (CNCF®) announced that Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) passed the Certified Kubernetes™ conformance program. Based on the upcoming release of Docker EE that was demonstrated onstage at DockerCon Europe, this certification guarantees that all Kubernetes APIs function as specified to deliver a consistent and portable Kubernetes experience within Docker EE. In addition to a fully-conformant, unmodified  Kubernetes experience, users of Docker EE will also have access to the advanced capabilities of the Docker platform including simple and powerful clustering, a secure end-to-end supply chain, and validation to run on all major Linux distributions, Windows, IBM mainframe, and several leading public clouds. By integrating Kubernetes into Docker EE, we simplify and advance the management of Kubernetes for enterprise IT.   Conformance Testing Docker EE was certified against Kubernetes v1.8 by passing a test suite overseen by SIG Architecture. The test gives end Continue reading…

Intesa Sanpaolo Builds a Resilient Foundation for Banking With Docker Enterprise Edition

Intesa Sanpaolo is the largest bank in Italy and maintains a network of over 5,000 banking branches across Europe and North Africa. With nearly 19 million customers and €739 billion in assets, Intesa Sanpaolo is an integral part of the financial fabric and as such, Italian regulations require that they keep their business and applications online to serve their customers. As a bank that can trace its roots back to the early 1800s, the majority of Intesa’s edge applications are still monolithic and hard to move between data centers, never mind migrate to the cloud. Diego Braga, Intesa IT Infrastructure Architect, looked to Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) at the recommendation of his Kiratech business partner Lorenzo Fontana to improve their application availability, portability and add cloud friendly application delivery. With Docker EE, Intesa was able to consolidate infrastructure by nearly 60%, thus saving significant money over Continue reading…
