Docker Distributed System Summit videos & podcast episodes

Following LinuxCon Europe in Berlin last week, we organized a first of its kind Docker event called Docker Distributed Systems Summit. This two day event was an opportunity for core Docker engineers and Docker experts from the community to learn, collaborate, problem-solve and hack around the next generation of distributed systems in areas such as orchestration, networking, security and storage. More specifically, the goal of the summit was to dive deep into Docker’s infrastructure plumbing tools and internals: SwarmKit, InfraKit, Hyperkit, Notary, libnetwork, IPVS, Raft, TUF and provide attendees with the working knowledge of how to leverage these tools while building their own systems. We’re happy to share with you all the videos recordings, slides and audio files available as #dockercast episodes! Youtube playlist Podcast playlist All the slides from the summit are available on the official Docker slideshare account. Please Continue reading…

Docker Networking Design Philosophy

From the experimental networking in Docker 1.7 to the initial release in Docker 1.9, the reception from the community has been fantastic! First of all we want to thank you for all the discussions, evaluations, PRs and filed issues. As the networking capabilities evolving with every release, we wanted to spend some time explaining the guiding principles behind the design.

Docker Compose and Networking: Easy, secure apps at scale

  When we released Docker 1.10 and Docker Compose 1.6 on February 4th, we provided you with an easy way to build a fully featured and scalable app. It’s amazing what you can do with just one simple file. I am constantly impressed what a docker-compose up gets you now. Networks and Volumes are now first class citizens of Docker Compose. That gives you a lot of control, allowing you to for instance put individual services on more than one network, and easily share volumes.

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.

Webinar Q&A: Docker Networking

Many enterprises have moved from monolithic to microservices architectures, and are using Docker to help manage these services. With loosely coupled services existing in multiple containers, these containers must be able to communicate with one another, and sometimes even exist in multiple networks at a time. Docker makes this extremely easy for developers and IT operations teams. We have found that enterprises today are using Docker and our pluggable architecture (plugins with Microsoft, Cisco, Vmware, Weave, and other) for multi-segmentation, multi-tenancy, as well as cloud portability.

Docker Online Meetups #28 and #29: Production-Ready Docker Swarm and Docker Networking is Now GA

This week, we hosted two Docker Online Meetups. The first on Wednesday featured Alexander Beslic presenting on production-ready Swarm. For the second one on Thursday, Madhu Venugopal discussed the recently-GA Docker Networking. Below are the recorded videos and slides from both presentations.  

Announcing Docker 1.9: Production-ready Swarm and Multi-host Networking

Today we’re releasing Docker 1.9 – and it’s a big one. Docker Swarm and multi-host networking are production-ready, Docker Engine has a new volume management system, and Docker Compose has much better support for multiple environments. These in combination establish the foundation for scaling your distributed apps in production. Containerization is changing how you build infrastructure, and you need to use the right tools for the job. Docker Swarm turns your infrastructure into a single pool of resources for running your distributed apps, but all of the containers that are part of those apps need managing somehow. And they all probably need to talk to each other. And some of them probably need to store data somewhere. In a world where a container could be running on any host in your infrastructure, this is a difficult thing to manage.

Docker Online Meetup #22: Docker Networking

“We’ll do for Networking, what Docker did for Compute” Building on top of his talk at DockerCon 2015, Jana Radhakrishnan, Lead Software Engineer at Docker, does a deep dive into Docker Networking with additional demos and insights on the product roadmap. Below is the recorded video and slides from Jana’s presentation on Docker Networking.
