Introducing Docker 1.13

Today we’re releasing Docker 1.13 with lots of new features, improvements and fixes to help Docker users with New Year’s resolutions to build more and better container apps. Docker 1.13 builds on and improves Docker swarm mode introduced in Docker 1.12 and has lots of other fixes. Read on for Docker 1.13 highlights. Use compose-files to deploy swarm mode services Docker 1.13 adds Compose-file support to the `docker stack deploy` command so that services can be deployed using a `docker-compose.yml` file directly. Powering this is a major effort to extend the swarm service API to make it more flexible and useful. Benefits include: Specifying the number of desired instances for each service Rolling update policies Service constraints Deploying a multi-host, multi-service stack is now as simple as: docker stack deploy –compose-file=docker-compose.yml my_stack Improved CLI backwards compatibility Ever been bitten by the dreaded Error Continue reading…

Docker for Azure Public Beta

Last week Docker for AWS went public beta, and today Docker for Azure reached the same milestone and is ready for public testing. Docker for Azure is a great way for ops to setup and maintain secure and scalable Docker deployments on Azure. With Docker for Azure, IT ops teams can: Deploy a standard Docker platform to ensure teams can seamlessly move apps from developer laptops to Dockerized staging and production environments, without risk of incompatibilities or lock-in. Integrate deeply with underlying infrastructure to ensure Docker takes advantage of the host environment’s native capabilities and exposes a familiar interface to administrators. Deploy the platform to all the places where you want to run Dockerized apps, simply and efficiently Make sure the latest and greatest Docker versions are available for the hardware, OSs, and infrastructure you love, and provide solid upgrade paths Continue reading…

Get all the Docker talks from Tech Field Day 12

As 2016 comes to a close, we are excited to have participated in a few of the Tech Field Day and inaugural Cloud Field Day events to share the Docker technology with the IT leaders and evangelists that Stephen Foskett and Tom Hollingsworth have cultivated into this fantastic group.  The final event was Tech Field Day 12 hosting in Silicon Valley. In case you missed the live stream, check out videos of the sessions here. Session 1: Introduction to Docker and Docker Datacenter Session 2: Securing the Software Supply Chain with Docker Session 3: Docker for Windows Server and Windows Containers Session 4: Docker for AWS and Azure Session 5: Docker Networking Fabric These are great overviews of the Docker technology applied to enterprise app pipelines, operations, and  diverse operating systems and cloud environments. And most importantly, this was a great opportunity Continue reading…

Docker at Tech Field Day 12

Docker will be presenting at Tech Field Day 12, and you can sit in on the sessions – at least virtually. Tech Field Day is an opportunity for IT practitioners to hear from some of the leading technology companies, and Docker is excited to be participating again. Many thanks to Stephen Foskett and Tom Hollingsworth for cultivating a vibrant community of technical leaders and evangelists and inviting us to participate. Looking forward to meeting more of the delegates. Our session will be Wednesday, November 16th, from 4:30 to 6:30pm Pacific. We have a full slate of topics including: Docker Datacenter: What is Docker Datacenter and how can it help organizations implement their own Container as a Service platform. Docker for Windows Server: An overview of the integration of Docker containers and Windows Server 2016. Docker for AWS and Docker for Azure: Continue reading…

Introducing InfraKit, an open source toolkit for creating and managing declarative, self-healing infrastructure

Written by Bill Farner and David Chung Docker’s mission is to build tools of mass innovation, starting with a programmable layer for the Internet that enables developers and IT operations teams to build and run distributed applications. As part of this mission, we have always endeavored to contribute software plumbing toolkits back to the community, following the UNIX philosophy of building small loosely coupled tools that are created to simply do one thing well. As Docker adoption has grown from 0 to 6 billion pulls, we have worked to address the needs of a growing and diverse set of distributed systems users. This work has led to the creation of many infrastructure plumbing components that have been contributed back to the community. It started in 2014 with libcontainer and libnetwork. In 2015 we created runC and co-founded OCI with an industry-wide set of partners to provide Continue reading…

Introducing the Docker for AWS and Azure Beta

Today, we’re excited to announce Docker for AWS and Docker for Azure. Our goals for Docker for AWS and Azure are the same as for Docker for Mac and Windows: Deploy a standard Docker platform to ensure teams can seamlessly move apps from developer laptops to Docker staging and production environments, without risk of incompatibilities or lock-in. Integrate deeply with underlying infrastructure to make sure Docker takes advantage of the host environment’s native capabilities and exposes a familiar interface to administrators. Deploy the Docker platform to all the places where you want to run containerized apps, simply and efficiently and at no extra cost. Make sure the latest and greatest Docker versions are available for the hardware, OSs, and infrastructure you love, and provide solid upgrade paths from one Docker version to the next.
