DockerCon Europe 2017 Highlights

DockerCon Europe 2017 is coming to an end and we’d like to thank all of the speakers, sponsors and attendees for contributing to the success of these amazing 3 days in Copenhagen. All the slides will soon be published on our slideshare account and all the breakout session videos recordings will soon be available on the docker website. DockerCon Day 1 Highlights On Tuesday, we announced that Docker will be delivering seamless integration of Kubernetes into the Docker platform. Adding Kubernetes support as an orchestration option (alongside Swarm) in both Docker Enterprise Edition, and in Docker for Mac and Windows will help simplify and advance the management of Kubernetes for enterprise IT and deliver the advanced capabilities of the Docker platform to a broader set of applications. To try the latest version of Docker Enterprise Edition, Docker for Mac and Windows with built-in Continue reading…

Docker Platform and Moby Project add Kubernetes

Today we’re announcing that the Docker platform is integrating support for Kubernetes so that Docker customers and developers have the option to use both Kubernetes and Swarm to orchestrate container workloads. Register for beta access and check out the detailed blog posts to learn how we’re bringing Kubernetes to: Docker Enterprise Edition Docker Community Edition on the desktop with Docker for Mac and Windows The Moby Project Docker is a platform that sits between apps and infrastructure. By building apps on Docker, developers and IT operations get freedom and flexibility. That’s because Docker runs everywhere that enterprises deploy apps: on-prem (including on IBM mainframes, enterprise Linux and Windows) and in the cloud. Once an application is containerized, it’s easy to re-build, re-deploy and move around, or even run in hybrid setups that straddle on-prem and cloud infrastructure. The Docker platform Continue reading…

Extending Docker Enterprise Edition to Support Kubernetes

At DockerCon Europe, we announced that Docker will be delivering seamless integration of Kubernetes into the Docker platform. Bringing Kubernetes to Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) will simplify and advance the management of Kubernetes for enterprise IT and deliver the advanced capabilities of Docker EE to a broader set of applications. Swarm and Kubernetes Side-by-Side Docker EE is an enterprise-grade container platform that includes a private image registry, advanced security features and centralized management for the entire container lifecycle. By including Kubernetes for container orchestration, customers will have the ability to run both Swarm and Kubernetes in the same Docker EE cluster while still leveraging the same secure software supply chain for building and deploying applications. Figure 1. Docker EE Architecture with Multiple Orchestrators This is possible because Docker EE has a modular architecture that is designed to support multiple orchestrators. The Linux nodes are both Continue reading…

Beta Docker for Mac and Windows with Kubernetes

Today, as part of our effort to bring Kubernetes support to the Docker platform, we’re excited to announce that we will also add optional Kubernetes to Docker Community Edition for Mac and Windows. We’re demoing previews at DockerCon (stop by the Docker booth!) and will have a beta program ready at the end of 2017. Sign up to be notified when the beta is ready. With Kubernetes support in Docker CE for Mac and Windows, Docker Inc. can provide customers an end-to-end suite of container-management software and services that span from developer workstations, through test and CI/CD through to production on-prem or in the cloud. Docker for Mac and Windows are the most popular way to configure a Docker dev environment and are used everyday by hundreds of thousands of developers to build, test and debug containerized apps. Docker for Mac Continue reading…

Kubernetes 1.8 release integrates with containerd 1.0 Beta

Intent of containerd effort When containerd was first developed it had two goals. The first was to solve the upgrade problem with running containers and provide a codebase where OCI runtimes, like runc, could be integrated into Docker.  However, as needs change in the container space and after speaking  with various members of the community at the beginning of this year, we decided to expand the scope of containerd and make it a fully functional container daemon with storage, image distribution and runtime. containerd fully supports the OCI Runtime and Image specifications that are part of the recently released 1.0 specifications. Additionally, it was important to build a stable runtime for users and platform builders. We wanted containerd to be fully functional; but also, it needed to retain a small core codebase so that it is easy to maintain and support in the long run with an Continue reading…

What is containerd ?

We have done a few talks in the past on different features of containerd, how it was designed, and some of the problems that we have fixed along the way.  Containerd is used by Docker, Kubernetes CRI, and a few other projects but this is a post for people who may not know what containerd actually does within these platforms.  I would like to do more posts on the featureset and design of containerd in the future but for now, we will start with the basics. I think the container ecosystem can be confusing at times. Especially with the terminology that we use. Whats this? A runtime. And this? A runtime…  containerd as the name implies, not contain nerd as some would like to troll me with, is a container daemon.  It was originally built as an integration point for OCI Continue reading…

Docker to donate containerd to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation

Today, Docker announced its intention to donate the containerd project to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Back in December 2016, Docker spun out its core container runtime functionality into a standalone component, incorporating it into a separate project called containerd, and announced we would be donating it to a neutral foundation early this year. Today we took a major step forward towards delivering on our commitment to the community by following the Cloud Native Computing Foundation process and presenting a proposal to the CNCF Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) for containerd to become a CNCF project. Given the consensus we have been building with the community, we are hopeful to get a positive affirmation from the TOC before CloudNativeCon/KubeCon later this month.   Over the past 4 years, the adoption of containers with Docker has triggered an unprecedented wave of innovation in our industry: Continue reading…

containerd summit recap: slides, videos and meeting notes

Last week, we hosted a containerd summit for contributors and maintainers. Containerd is a core container runtime with an emphasis on simplicity, robustness and portability. It is available as a daemon for Linux and Windows, which can manage the complete container lifecycle of its host system: image transfer and storage, container execution and supervision, snapshot storage for container filesystems and a few other things to make the management of containers robust. We started off by getting everyone up to speed on the project, roadmap and goals before diving down into specific issues and design of containerd.  We had a couple breakout sessions where we discussed blocking issues and feature requests by various members of the community. You can see a summary of the breakout sessions in last week’s development report in the containerd repository and the various presentations below: Deep Dive into Continue reading…
