Docker at Nutanix .NEXT Conference – Visit us at Booth #S11

Today marks the start of Nutanix .NEXT Conference in Washington, D.C., the annual conference for Nutanix customers and partners. One of the major themes of the conference is hybrid cloud, and Docker will be there to demonstrate how Docker Enterprise Edition delivers application portability across different infrastructure platforms through a complete enterprise-ready Container as a Service (CaaS) solution for IT. Docker and Nutanix will also be highlighting the Nutanix Docker Volume Plug-in (DVP), a Docker Certified Plugin available in the Docker Store. This plugin connects Docker containers to enterprise-grade persistent storage from Nutanix even as the container is powered on, powered off, or moved to a new host. As part of the certification process, Docker and Nutanix validate that the plugin is built with Docker recommended best practices and passes an additional suite of API compliance testing and vulnerability scanning.

The Latest Docker Certified Container and Plugins for March and April 2017

The Docker Certification Program provides a way for technology partners to validate and certify their software or plugin as a container for use on the Docker Enterprise Edition platform.  Since the initial launch of the program in March, more Containers and Plugins have been certified and available for download.   Certified Containers and Plugins are technologies that are built with best practices as Docker containers, tested and validated against the Docker Enterprise Edition platform and APIs, pass security requirements, reviewed by Docker partner engineering and cooperatively supported by both Docker and the partner. Docker Enterprise Edition and Certified Technology provide assurance and support to businesses for their critical application infrastructure. Check out the latest Docker Certified technologies to the Docker Store: Dynatrace provides monitoring Docker applications and Docker clusters out of the box. {code} by Dell EMC certified a number of REX-ray Continue reading…

The Agility and Flexibility of Docker including Oracle Database and Development Tools

A company’s important applications often are subjected to random and capricious changes due to forces well beyond the control of IT or management.  Events like a corporate merger or even a top programmer on an extended vacation can have an adverse impact on the performance and reliability of critical company infrastructure. During the second day keynote at DockerCon 2017 in Austin TX, Lily Guo and Vivek Saraswat showed a simulation of how to use Docker Enterprise Edition and its application transformation tools to respond to random events that threaten to undermine the stability of their company critical service. The demo begins as two developers are returning to work after an extended vacation.  They discover that, during their absence, their CEO has unexpectedly hired an outside contract programmer to rapidly code and introduce an entire application service that they know nothing Continue reading…

Enterprise Ready Software from Docker Store

Docker Store is the place to discover and procure trusted, enterprise-ready containerized software – free, open source and commercial. Docker Store is the evolution of the Docker Hub, which is the world’s largest container registry, catering to millions of users. As of March 1, 2017, we crossed 11 billion pulls from the public registry!  Docker Store leverages the public registry’s massive user base and ensures our customers – developers, operators and enterprise Docker users get what they ask for. The Official Images program was developed to create a set of curated and trusted content that developers could use as a foundation for building containerized software. From the lessons learned and best practices, Docker recently launched a certification program that  enables ISVs, around the world to take advantage of Store in offering great software, packaged to operate optimally on the Docker platform. The Docker Store Continue reading…

Online Meetup Recap: Docker Community Edition (CE) and Enterprise Edition (EE)

Last week, we announced Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) and Docker Community Edition (CE) new and renamed versions of the Docker platform. Docker EE, supported by Docker Inc., is available on certified operating systems and cloud providers and runs certified Containers and Plugins from Docker Store. The Docker open source products are now Docker CE and we have adopted a new lifecycle and time-based versioning scheme for both Docker EE and CE. We asked product manager and release captain, Michael Friis to introduce Docker CE + EE to our online community. The meetup took place on Wednesday, March 8th and over 600 people RSVPed to hear Michael’s presentation live. He gave an overview of both editions and highlighted the big enhancements to the lifecycle, maintainability and upgradability of Docker. In case you missed it, you can watch the recording and access Michael’s slides below.   Continue reading…

Introducing the Docker Store Private Beta

We are very excited to announce the private beta of Docker Store, a marketplace for trusted and validated dockerized software – free, open source and commercial.   Our goals with Docker Store are designed around bringing Docker users and ecosystem partners together. Provide a scalable self-service system for ISVs to publish and distribute trusted and enterprise-ready content Provide a publishing process that validates software quality, including; security scanning, component inventory, the open-source license usage and use of best practices in image construction. Provide enterprise users with compliant, commercially supported software from trusted and verified publishers, that is packaged as Docker images.   We’ve added powerful search and browsing capabilities, including categorization. The use and creation of dockerized content has grown exponentially in the last couple of years.  This demand on content and the expanded use of Docker within the enterprise Continue reading…
