WEBINAR Q&A: Modernize Traditional Applications with Docker Enterprise Edition

This week at DockerCon, we announced the Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) Program to help enterprises make their existing legacy apps more secure, more efficient and portable to hybrid cloud infrastructure. This webinar covers the importance of “WHY NOW and HOW” to start modernizing traditional applications with Docker Enterprise Edition. Legacy applications often serve critical business needs and have to be maintained for a long time. The maintenance of these applications can become expensive and very time consuming. Some applications may have been written decades ago, grown to millions of lines of code  and the team that built and deployed the app may no longer be at your company. That can pose a challenge for app maintenance, security and support. Docker Enterprise Edition and the Image2Docker Tool presents a unique opportunity to modernize these apps into containers to make them portable, more secure and Continue reading…

Walk, Jog, Run: Getting Smarter About Docker

  I’ve spent most of the summer traveling to and speaking at a lot of different trade shows: EMC World, Cisco Live!, VMworld, HP Discover, Dockercon, and LinuxCon (as well as some meetups and smaller gatherings). A lot of the time, I’m speaking to people who are just getting familiar with Docker. They may have read an article or have had someone walk into their office and say “This Docker thing, so hot right now. Go figure it out”. Certainly there are a number of companies running Docker in production, but there are still many who are asking fundamental questions about what Docker is, and how it can benefit their organization. To help folks out in that regard, I wrote an eBook. After someone gets a grasp on what Docker is, they tend to want to dive in and start Continue reading…

Announcing the new Docs Repo on GitHub!

The documentation team at Docker is excited to announce that we are consolidating all of our documentation into a single GitHub Pages-based repository on GitHub. When is this happening? The new repo is public now at https://github.com/docker/docker.github.io. During the week of Monday, September 26th, any existing docs PRs need to be migrated over or merged. We’ll do one last “pull” from the various docs repos on Wednesday, September 28th, at which time the docs/ folders in the various repos will be emptied. Between the 28th and full cutover, the docs team will be testing the new repo and making sure all is well across every page. Full cutover (production is drawing from the new repo, new docs work is pointed at the new repo, dissolution of old docs/ folders) is complete on Monday, October 3rd. The problem with the status Continue reading…
