Running Docker on Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0

Did you know that Docker Hub has millions of users pulling roughly one billion container images every two weeks — and it all runs on Docker Enterprise Edition? Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 may now be available to commercial customers who require an enterprise-ready container platform, but the Docker operations team has already been using it in production for some time. As part of our commitment to delivering high quality software that is ready to support your mission-critical applications, we leverage Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 as the platform behind Docker Hub and our other SaaS services, Docker Store, and Docker Cloud. Some organizations call it “dogfooding;” some call it “drinking your own champagne.” Whatever you call it, the importance of this program is to be fully invested in our own container platform and share in the same operational experiences as our Continue reading…

Announcing Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0

  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 to operationalize Kubernetes more rapidly with streamlined workflows and helps you deliver safer applications through integrated security solutions. In this blog post, we’ll walk through some of the key new capabilities of Docker EE 2.0. Eliminate Your Fear of Lock-in As containerization becomes core to your IT strategy, the importance of having a platform that supports choice becomes even more Continue reading…

A Secure Supply Chain for Kubernetes, Part 2

Two weeks ago we shared how the upcoming release of Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) is able to secure the software supply chain for Kubernetes; just as it does for Docker Swarm through a combination of scanning for vulnerabilities and implementing image promotion policies. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at another part of this solution – Docker Content Trust and image signing. When combined with granular Role Based Access Controls [RBAC] and the secure clustering features of Docker EE, organizations get a secure container platform solution that is ready for the enterprise. Restricting Unverified Kubernetes Content As discussed in Part 1 of this blog post, organizations typically have a “supply chain” for how applications progress from a developer’s laptop to production, whether that is on-premises or in the cloud. For larger organizations, the team that handles QA and testing is not always Continue reading…

A Secure Supply Chain for Kubernetes

The beta release of the Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) container platform last month integrates Kubernetes orchestration, running alongside Swarm, to provide a single container platform that supports both legacy and new applications running on-premises or in the cloud. For organizations that are exploring Kubernetes or deploying it in production, Docker EE offers integrated security for the entire lifecycle of a containerized application, providing an additional layer of security before the workload is deployed by Kubernetes and continuing to secure the application while it is running. Mike Coleman previously discussed access controls for Kubernetes. This week we’ll begin discussing how Docker EE secures the Kubernetes supply chain. What is a Software Supply Chain? When you purchase something from a retail store, there is an entire supply chain that gets the product from raw materials to the manufacturer to you. Similarly, there is Continue reading…

Docker Compose and Kubernetes with Docker for Desktop

If you’re running an edge version of Docker on your desktop (Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows Desktop), you can now stand up a single-node Kubernetes cluster with the click of a button. While I’m not a developer, I think this is great news for the millions of developers who have already been using Docker on their Macbook or Windows laptop because they now have a fully compliant Kubernetes cluster at their fingertips without installing any other tools. Developers using Docker to build containerized applications often build Docker Compose files to deploy them. With the integration of Kubernetes into the Docker product line, some developers may want to leverage their existing Compose files but deploy these applications in Kubernetes. With Docker on the desktop (as well as Docker Enterprise Edition) you can use Docker compose to directly deploy an application onto a Kubernetes Continue reading…

Docker for Windows Desktop… Now With Kubernetes!

Today we are excited to announce the beta for Docker for Windows Desktop with integrated Kubernetes is now available in the edge channel! This release includes Kubernetes 1.8, just like the Docker for Mac and Docker Enterprise Edition and will allow you to develop Linux containers. The easiest way to get Kubernetes on your desktop is here. Simply check the box and go What You Can Do with Kubernetes on your desktop? Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows are the most popular way to configure a Docker dev environment, and are each used everyday by millions of developers to build, test, and debug containerized apps. The beauty of building with Docker for Mac or Windows is that you can deploy the exact same set of Docker container images on your desktop as you do on your production systems with Docker EE. Docker for Mac and Docker for Continue reading…

Role-based Access Control for Kubernetes with Docker EE

Last week we released the latest beta for Docker Enterprise Edition. Without a doubt one of the most significant features in this release is providing a single management control plane for both Swarm and Kubernetes-based clusters – including clusters made up of both Swarm and Kubernetes workers. This offers customers unparalleled choice in how they manage both their traditional and cloud native applications. When we were looking at doing this release we knew we couldn’t just slap a GUI on top of Kubernetes and call it good. We wanted to find areas where we could simplify and secure the deployment of  applications onto Kubernetes nodes. One such area is role-based access control (RBAC). Docker EE 17.06 introduced an enhanced RBAC solution that provided flexible and granular access controls across multiple teams and users. While Kubernetes first introduced a basic RBAC solution with the Continue reading…

Beta for Docker Enterprise Edition with Kubernetes Integration Now Available

Today we are excited to launch the public beta for Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE), our container management platform. First announced at DockerCon Europe, this release features Kubernetes integration as an optional orchestration solution, running side-by-side with Docker Swarm. With this solution, organizations will be able to deploy applications with either Swarm or fully-conformant Kubernetes while maintaining the consistent developer-to-IT workflow users have come to expect from Docker, especially when combined with the recent edge release of Docker for Mac with Kubernetes support. In addition to Kubernetes, this release includes enhancements to Swarm and to Docker Trusted Registry (DTR) which can be tested during the beta period. Due to the high interest in this beta, license keys will be rolled out in batches over the next few weeks. Individuals who signed up for beta at www.docker.com/kubernetes will receive instructions on how to access this release and Continue reading…
