New Dockercast episode with Ilan Rabinovitch from Datadog

In case you missed it, we launched Dockercast, the official Docker Podcast earlier this month including all the DockerCon 2016 sessions available as podcast episodes. In this podcast we talk to Ilan Rabinovitch the Director of Technical Community at Datadog.  I first met Ilan back at SCALE8X (Southern California Linux Expo) 6 years ago.  Ilan has been running SCALE since it’s inception.   As Ilan points out in the podcast, our very own Jérôme Petazzoni packed the house back at SCALE11x (2013).  At Datadog Ilan has been working with the Docker community on monitoring containers and developing what Datadog calls their Monitoring-as-a-Service offering that combines Docker metadata and Docker container monitoring information.  Ilan discusses some of the differences of monitoring containers versus virtual machines. We also talk about Datadog’s adoption surveys highlighting the unprecedented  “wildfire” adoption of technology unseen since Linux Continue reading…

Apply for a Docker Scholarship and learn how to code!

Today, Docker is proud to announce the launch of the Docker Scholarship Program in partnership with Reactor Core to improve opportunities for underrepresented groups in the tech industry! With the help of the community, we surpassed our goal for the DockerCon 2016 Bump Up Challenge unlocking $50,000 to fund three full tuition scholarships.     The Docker Scholarship Program is part of our continued work to improve opportunities for women and underrepresented groups throughout the global Docker ecosystem and encourage inclusivity in the larger tech community. Docker’s Goal The goal of the Docker scholarship program is to strengthen the broader tech community by making it more diverse and inclusive to traditionally underrepresented groups. We aim to achieve that goal by providing financial support and mentorship to three students at Reactor Core’s partner schools, Hack Reactor and Telegraph Academy. Our Partnership with Hack Reactor and Continue reading…

Cornell University: It all started with Dockerizing an old version of Confluence with Docker Datacenter

This is a guest post by Shawn Bower In my role as Cloud Architect I often hear, “Docker sounds great but it won’t work for my application.”  In my experience Docker can improve the state of many applications including legacy and vendor solutions.  The first production workload at Cornell on Docker was the University’s wiki which is run on Atlassian’s Confluence in April 2015. Our installation of Confluence is an interesting intersection of legacy and vendor solution.  We have customized the code, to work with our single sign on solution, as well as a custom synchronization with LDAP for group management.  When we started the project to move Confluence to the cloud the infrastructure, the software was old, compiled from the source and was being hand maintained.   The stack looked like this: Apache 2.2.10 OpenSSL 0.9.8H Java 1.6 (EOL Continue reading…

Support from the Source: Getting Official Docker Support

Docker is the open platform to build, ship and run any application, anywhere. Whether legacy or microservices, Linux or Windows, Docker provides an OS, infrastructure and application architecture agnostic platform for developers and IT organizations to accelerate their application pipeline. Organizations often look for additional tooling and support as they look to bring Dockerized applications into production with SLAs that mirror their own service level commitments to their customers. Docker is available as free open source software or combined with commercial support with enterprise class service levels.   Open Source Support The Docker team and community collaborate together to release updates to the Docker Engine and other related projects every couple of months. Open source support for the Docker Engine is provided through IRC, GitHub, and Docker Forums for the latest released version of Docker software. Any bugs and issues Continue reading…
