Docker Hub‘s automated build system is one of it’s most popular features. One quarter of all repositories on Docker Hub are created through the automated build system, and the system is now processing over 60,000 builds per week – a 300% increase since the beginning of this year. Today, we are releasing a major upgrade to our Autobuild system which features dynamic matching of git branches and tags, a faster and more secure build infrastructure, and user control over build parallelism.
In March 2013, we demonstrated Docker in public for the first time, and we built “the Index” – now known as Docker Hub. Docker Hub is our cloud service for building, organizing and distributing Docker container images. Fast forward five months to August 2013, when something very exciting happened. “The Index” reached the incredible milestone of 2,000 downloads!
Our most recent case study webinar featured James Nocentini, Developer Advocate at Couchbase, discussing how they Continuously Deploy mobile applications running on Couchbase Mobile with Docker, Compose and Tutum.
Last spring Docker released Engine version 1.6 and Registry version 2. These introduced an updated push / pull protocol featuring faster image transfers, simplified image definition, and improved security. The Docker community has aggressively adopted them, and as a result over 99% of Docker Hub usage is based on these newer version. As a result we are deprecating support on Docker Hub for clients version 1.5 and earlier.
The Docker Hub team has been busy over the summer and today we’re ready to share some exciting updates. More and more developers are using Docker Hub to automate their workflows, and Docker Hub’s re-architected stack and new UI, together with partner plugins for source code management and continuous integration, will help them, and you, build, ship, and run apps even faster.
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger The distribution and management of Docker images are made possible by various registry services including: Docker Hub, Docker Trusted Registry and Docker Open Source Registry. Both Docker Hub and Docker Trusted Registry are commercial products that incorporate the open source registry capabilities into their respective solutions. Docker Hub is a multi-tenant service hosted by Docker while Docker Trusted Registry and open source Registry provide users with the option to host private registries behind their own firewall or dedicated cloud environment. In April of 2015, we released Docker Registry 2.0 which included a complete rewrite in Go…
We posted more videos from DockerCon 2015! Below are the recorded video and slides from the sessions on Day 2 in the Docker, Docker, Docker track at DockerCon 2015. We will publish more videos this week, as soon as we process them. Stay tuned!
DockerCon Day 1 was filled with several exciting announcements, including the Open Container Project, Docker Network, Docker Platform 1.7, and container runtime runC. DockerCon Day 2 builds on this, with an emphasis on the solutions that we are building on that complement the tools discussed yesterday. Happy Birthday, Docker Hub! First up: Docker Hub. Launched at last year’s DockerCon San Francisco, Docker Hub has grown to more than 240,000 users and served more than 500 million pulls of Docker images. Docker Hub is the home of community contributed images, private image repos and Official Repos – curated and maintained images of popular software packages. Official repos…
