We’ve Got ❤️ For Our First Batch of DockerCon Speakers

As the world celebrates Valentine’s Day, at Docker, we are celebrating what makes our heart all aflutter – gearing up for an amazing DockerCon with the individuals and organizations that make up the Docker community. With that, we are thrilled to announce our first speakers for DockerCon San Francisco, April 29 – May 2. DockerCon fan favorites like Liz Rice, Bret Fisher and Don Bauer are returning to the conference to share new insights and experiences to help you better learn how to containerize. And we are excited to welcome new speakers to the DockerCon family including Ana Medina, Tommy Hamilton and Ian Coldwater to talk chaos engineering, building your production container platform stack and orchestration with Docker Swarm and Kubernetes.  And we’re just getting started! This year DockerCon is going to bring more technical deep dives, practical how-to’s, customer case studies and inspirational stories. Stay Continue reading…

Top 5 Blog Post of 2018: Docker Enterprise 2.0 with Kubernetes

Day 2 of our top blog posts of 2018 and coming in at Number 4 is the launch of Docker Enterprise 2.0 (formerly Docker Enterprise Edition). Docker’s industry-leading container platform is the only platform that simplifies Kubernetes and manages and secures applications on Kubernetes in multi-Linux, multi-OS and multi-cloud customer environments. To learn more about our Docker Enterprise, read on…     We are excited to announce Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 – a significant leap forward in our enterprise-ready container platform. Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 2.0 is the only platform that manages and secures applications on Kubernetes in multi-Linux, multi-OS and multi-cloud customer environments. As a complete platform that integrates and scales with your organization, Docker EE 2.0 gives you the most flexibility and choice over the types of applications supported, orchestrators used, and where it’s deployed. It also enables organizations Continue reading…

Get to Know Docker Desktop

Today on the Edge release channels, we released a new beta version of Docker Desktop, the product formerly known as Docker for Windows and Docker for Mac. You can download this new Edge release for both Windows and macOS. Docker Desktop enables you to start coding and containerizing in minutes and is the easiest way to run Docker Engine, Docker Swarm and Kubernetes on Mac and Windows. In addition to simple setup, Docker Desktop also includes other great features and capabilities such as: Fast edit-test cycles with volume mounting for code and data, including file change notifications. If you want to switch from Swarm to Kubernetes for orchestration, it’s a click of a button in the Docker Desktop UI. On Windows desktops, you can develop both Windows and Linux containers with Docker Desktop using a toggle selection in the UI. Docker Desktop handles the setup Continue reading…

Introducing Docker Application Guides

In April of 2017 we announced the Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) program at Docker. The goal of MTA is to take the vast back catalogs of existing applications that are running in enterprise organizations today, and bring them to a modern container platform, without requiring extensive rewrites or refactoring. I’m excited to share part of our learning from the MTA program and announce the release of Docker Application Guides.   Oracle WebLogic MedRec Sample Application on Docker Enterprise Edition Docker Application Guides demonstrate how to deploy popular enterprise applications – Oracle WebLogic and IBM MQ with WebSphere Liberty – on Docker Enterprise and Docker Desktop. Application Guides include example architectures and guidance for selecting Certified Docker container images from Docker Store and deploying a prototype application, orchestrated by Docker Swarm or Kubernetes. It is important to note that Docker Application Guides are Continue reading…

Enhanced Layer 7 Routing for Swarm in Docker Enterprise Edition Beta

 The beta release of Docker Enterprise Edition has seen incredible activity. The highlight of the upcoming Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) release is the integration of Kubernetes and bringing all of the advanced security, RBAC and management capabilities of Docker EE to Kubernetes. At the same time, we have been working to improve Swarm, delivering the only container platform that allows you to run both orchestrators in the same cluster. In this blog post, we’ll highlight some the key new capabilities around application-layer (Layer 7) routing and load balancing for Swarm-deployed applications. These enhancements come from the new Interlock 2.0 architecture which provides a highly scalable and highly available routing solution for Swarm. The new architecture brings some additional features to the platform, including path-based routing and SSL termination. Path-Based Routing Layer 7 load balancing allows traffic going to host domains like acme.com Continue reading…

Simplifying the Management of Kubernetes with Docker Enterprise Edition

Back in October at DockerCon Europe, we announced that Docker will be delivering a  seamless and simplified integration of Kubernetes into the Docker platform. By integrating Kubernetes with Docker EE, we provide the choice to use Kubernetes and/or Docker Swarm for orchestration while maintaining the consistent developer to operator workflow users have come to expect from Docker. For users, this means they get an unmodified, conformant version of Kubernetes with the added value of the Docker platform including security, management, a familiar developer workflow and tooling, broad ecosystem compatibility and an adherence to industry standards including containerd and the OCI. One of the biggest questions that we’ve been asked since we announced support for Kubernetes at  DockerCon EU –  what does this mean for an operations team that is already using Kubernetes to orchestrate containers within their enterprise? The answer is really 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…

Least Privilege Container Orchestration

The Docker platform and the container has become the standard for packaging, deploying, and managing applications. In order to coordinate running containers across multiple nodes in a cluster, a key capability is required: a container orchestrator. Orchestrators are responsible for critical clustering and scheduling tasks, such as: Managing container scheduling and resource allocation. Support service discovery and hitless application deploys. Distribute the necessary resources that applications need to run. Unfortunately, the distributed nature of orchestrators and the ephemeral nature of resources in this environment makes securing orchestrators a challenging task. In this post, we will describe in detail the less-considered—yet vital—aspect of the security model of container orchestrators, and how Docker Enterprise Edition with its built-in orchestration capability, Swarm mode, overcomes these difficulties. Motivation and threat model One of the primary objectives of Docker EE with swarm mode is to provide Continue reading…
