Simplifying Kubernetes with Docker Compose and Friends

Today we’re happy to announce we’re open sourcing our support for using Docker Compose on Kubernetes. We’ve had this capability in Docker Enterprise for a little while but as of today you will be able to use this on any Kubernetes cluster you choose. Why do I need Compose if I already have Kubernetes? The Kubernetes API is really quite large. There are more than 50 first-class objects in the latest release, from Pods and Deployments to ValidatingWebhookConfiguration and ResourceQuota. This can lead to a verbosity in configuration, which then needs to be managed by you, the developer. Let’s look at a concrete example of that. The Sock Shop is the canonical example of a microservices application. It consists of multiple services using different technologies and backends, all packaged up as Docker images. It also provides example configurations using different tools, including both Continue reading…

Introducing Docker Desktop Enterprise

Nearly 1.4 million developers use Docker Desktop every single day because it is the simplest and easiest way for container-based development. Docker Desktop provides the Docker Engine with Swarm and Kubernetes orchestrators right on the desktop, all from a single install. While this is great for an individual user, in enterprise environments administrators often want to automate the Docker Desktop installation and ensure everyone on the development team has the same configuration following enterprise requirements and creating applications based on architectural standards.     Docker Desktop Enterprise is a new desktop offering that is the easiest, fastest and most secure way to create and deliver production-ready containerized applications. Developers can work with frameworks and languages of their choice, while IT can securely configure, deploy and manage development environments that align to corporate standards and practices. This enables organizations to rapidly Continue reading…

DockerCon Hallway Track Is Back – Schedule One Today

    The Hallway Track is coming back to DockerCon Europe in Barcelona. DockerCon Hallway Track is an innovative platform that helps you find like-minded people to meet one-on-one and schedule knowledge sharing conversations based on shared topics of interest. We’ve partnered with e180 to provide the next level of conference attendee networking. Together, we believe that some of the most valuable conversations can come from hallway encounters, and that we can unlock greatness by learning from each other. After the success at past DockerCons, we’re happy to grow this idea further in Barcelona. DockerCon is all about learning new things and connecting with the community. The Hallway Track will help you meet and share knowledge with Docker Staff, other attendees, Speakers, and Docker Captains through structured networking. To participate in Hallway Tracks: Explore the Market – where all participants Continue reading…

Announcing the DockerCon EU 2018 Sessions

  DockerCon EU 2018 sessions focus on how Docker works for you. From the latest in Docker technology, to how-tos for your developer and IT infrastructure and operations team, to customer stories on how they are transforming their business with Docker, this year’s program was revamped based on audience feedback. The result –  we’ve doubled your favorite content! That’s right, we’ve expanded our popular Using Docker track into two customized tracks for those that are hands on with Docker technology on a daily basis – Using Docker for Developers and Using Docker for IT Infrastructure and Operations.   DockerCon is for Teams DockerCon is better with friends and colleagues. In Barcelona we are introducing tracks specifically dedicated to developers and IT Infrastructure and Operations professionals. Combined with hands-on learning opportunities with Official Training, Workshops and Labs, there is no shortage of ways to Continue reading…

Imagine Yourself on the DockerCon Stage

We want to hear from you Share your story of how Docker and containers work for you at DockerCon EU in Barcelona Dec 3-5, 2018. DockerCon is the industry-leading container conference where thought leaders and the community of developers, IT professionals, architects and business leaders come together to learn, discover and engage with each other. Part of the learning experience is hearing about the possibilities of containerization from other teams using containers. Don’t be shy about proposing your idea – no topic is too small or too big. For every presentation given, there are hundreds of people who learn and relate to the experience and insights that you share.  Some of the best talks have come from people just like you — and for some, DockerCon is their very first time public speaking. Our team is standing by to help with any Continue reading…

DockerCon SF 2018 Cool Hacks Spotlight: Kubeflow

The closing keynote at DockerCon is traditionally the Cool Hacks keynote. This year, we featured three great hacks showing off innovative uses of Docker. In this post, I’d like to highlight one in particular, the Kubeflow demo with David Aronchick, and Michelle Casbon. Machine Learning (ML) is becoming increasing popular, and important to enterprises. Kubeflow is an ML toolkit for Kubernetes, developed by Google. It’s a dedicated, portable and scalable approach to machine learning, using tools you’re already using to deploy other applications. It’s great because data scientists can use it to test out model creation on their laptops. And data engineers can take the models and use the power of Docker Enterprisein the cloud to further train and use the models in production. In their demo, David and Michelle showed building an app using Kubeflow first with Docker Desktop and then Continue reading…

Containerd, BuildKit and a Reflection about the Enduring Value of Docker Engine

Two weeks ago was our eighth DockerCon in just four years. Our community of contributors, developers, IT users, enterprises and ecosystem partners has grown exponentially into the millions,  anchored on our founder Solomon Hykes’ simple premise of democratizing the use of the software container. Today as was from the beginning, Docker creates simple tooling and a universal packaging approach that bundles up all application dependencies inside the container.  Docker Engine enables applications to run anywhere consistently on any infrastructure, solving “dependency hell” for developers and operations teams, and eliminating the “it works on my laptop!” problem. In the past 2 years, Docker Engine’s codebase has been refactored into several reusable components, the most important being containerd, the core container runtime, and BuildKit, the part of Docker Engine used to build images. In the contribute and collaborate track at DockerCon, Michael Continue reading…
