Visa Inc. Gains Speed and Operational Efficiency with Docker Enterprise Edition

DockerCon 2017 was an opportunity to hear from customers across multiple industries and segments on how they are leveraging Docker technology to accelerate their business. In the keynote on Day 2 and also a breakout session that afternoon, Visa shared how Docker Enterprise Edition is empowering them on their mission to make global economies safer by digitizing currency and making electronic payments available to everyone, everywhere.   Visa is the world’s largest retail electronic payment network that handles 130 billion transactions a year, processing $5.8 trillion annually. Swamy Kocherlakota, Global Head of Infrastructure and Operations, shared that Visa got here by expanding their global footprint which has put pressure on his organization which has remained mostly flat in headcount during that time. Since going into production with their Docker Containers-as-a-Service architecture 6 months ago, Swamy has seen a 10x increase in Continue reading…

Docker Online Meetup #41: Deep Dive into Docker 1.12 Networking

For this week’s Docker Online Meetup, Sr. Director, Networking at Docker, Madhu Venugopal, joined us to talk about Docker 1.12 Networking and answer questions. Starting with Docker 1.12, Docker has added features to the core Docker Engine to make multi-host and multi-container orchestration simple to use and accessible to everyone. Docker 1.12 Networking plays a key role in enabling these orchestration features. In this online meetup, we learned all the new and exciting networking features introduced in Docker 1.12: Swarm-mode networking Routing Mesh Ingress and Internal Load-Balancing Service Discovery Encrypted Network Control-Plane and Data-Plane Multi-host networking without external KV-Store MACVLAN Driver   The number of questions Madhu got at the end of the online meetup was amazing and because he did not have time to answer all of them, we’ve added the rest of the Q&A below: Q: Will you address Continue reading…

Docker Networking takes a step in the right direction

It’s been just over one month since the SocketPlane team joined Docker and we’ve been working hard to deliver on our promise of helping to grow a healthy ecosystem around Networking. This week, with the help of our partners, we’ve taken the first major step by making libnetwork open source. What is libnetwork? In its initial form libnetwork is an amalgamation of the networking code from both libcontainer and Docker Engine that we expect to grow into a multi-platform library for networking containers, much like how libcontainer is used to create containers today. Libnetwork also introduces the Container Network Model (CNM) which was inspired by this GitHub issue and the valuable input from networking partners Cisco, IBM, Joyent, Microsoft, Rancher, VMware and Weave. With the help of our ecosystem, we’ve laid the foundations for a valuable library that can be Continue reading…
