WEBINAR Q&A: Modernize Traditional Applications with Docker Enterprise Edition

This week at DockerCon, we announced the Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) Program to help enterprises make their existing legacy apps more secure, more efficient and portable to hybrid cloud infrastructure. This webinar covers the importance of “WHY NOW and HOW” to start modernizing traditional applications with Docker Enterprise Edition. Legacy applications often serve critical business needs and have to be maintained for a long time. The maintenance of these applications can become expensive and very time consuming. Some applications may have been written decades ago, grown to millions of lines of code  and the team that built and deployed the app may no longer be at your company. That can pose a challenge for app maintenance, security and support. Docker Enterprise Edition and the Image2Docker Tool presents a unique opportunity to modernize these apps into containers to make them portable, more secure and Continue reading…

Recap: Docker at SCALE 14x

SCALE 14x in Pasadena was a blast! With the exciting Unikernels announcement and Docker LA Meetup along with talks and workshops at the conference, there was a lot of buzz around Docker last week. Check out the slides and videos from the Docker team at SCALE 14x below.

Your Docker Agenda for SCALE 14x

We’re heading to Pasadena this week for SCALE 14x – see you there? If you are coming, make sure to stop by booth #712 to say hi to the Docker team! We also have several talks (and a few exciting secret announcements!) at the conference – below is our list of talks to attend at SCALE 14x.

The Cloud Native Computing Foundation is getting started today

In July Docker became a Founding Member of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Today the CNCF gets started with a ratified open governance structure including a Technical Oversight Committee (TOC) to direct technical decisions, for which nominations are open.

We Had a Whale of a Time at LinuxCon and ContainerCon!

Docker and the Docker team made quite a splash in Seattle last week at LinuxCon, ContainerCon and all of the other co-located events! Below are some of the Docker team’s favorite memories from the week.

Your Docker Agenda for LinuxCon

Docker and containers are making a big splash in Seattle next week! LinuxCon runs from Monday, August 17 through Wednesday, August 19 but there are plenty of co-located events during the week including ContainerCon, MesosCon and the Linux Plumbers Conference. Below is our list of the must-attend talks at the different events in Seattle next week. We know the timing of several talks conflict – thankfully, they will be recorded! Docker’s SVP of Engineering Marianna Tessel will be delivering a keynote during the morning on Monday, August 17th – click here to sign up for the livestream of her talk!

Introducing runC: a lightweight universal container runtime

Spinning Out Docker’s Plumbing: Part 1: Introducing runC On Infrastructure Plumbing To build a platform like Docker you need a lot of infrastructure plumbing; in fact over the past two years even though our code base has grown to tens of thousands of lines of code; roughly 50% of it is plumbing! Infrastructure plumbing is made of small software tools which perform basic fundamental tasks in the most reliable and simple way possible. It is invisible and under-appreciated especially given that plumbing is what holds the world’s Internet infrastructure together. To build Docker we have re-used large quantities of plumbing: Linux, Go, lxc, aufs, lvm, iptables, virtualbox, vxlan, mesos, etcd, consul, systemd… the list goes on. Docker wouldn’t be possible without the thousands of people who contributed to create this plumbing.When plumbing was not available or not sufficient, with the help Continue reading…

I am a software platform builder. I joined Docker last week, to help Solomon and the Docker team build the distributed computing platform we need for the next decade, as software eats the world and is assembled in systems composed of high number of devices collaborating with even higher numbers of cloud services: a future where the paint covering the walls of your house will host thousands of units of computing, some of them getting power from the Sun, others collaborating with millions of cloud services. About me I am a software developer and storyteller, but above all, a platform guy. I spent 10 years building platforms at Netscape & Sun, then 10 years evangelizing platforms at Google, VMware & Microsoft. My main professional interest is in building and kickstarting the network effect for these wondrous two-sided markets called Platforms.
