Top 5 Blogs of 2017: Docker Platform and Moby Project add Kubernetes

As we count down the final days of 2017, we would like to bring you the final installment of the top 5 blogs of 2017. On day 5, we take a look back DockerCon EU, when we announced Kubernetes support in the Docker platform. This blog takes an in-depth look at the industry-leading container platform and the addition of Kubernetes. 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 Continue reading…

Top 5 blogs of 2017: LinuxKit, A Toolkit for building Secure, Lean and Portable Linux Subsystems

In case you’ve missed it, this week we’re highlighting the top five most popular Docker blogs in 2017. Coming in the third place is the announcement of LinuxKit, a toolkit for building secure, lean and portable Linux Subsystems.   LinuxKit includes the tooling to allow building custom Linux subsystems that only include exactly the components the runtime platform requires. All system services are containers that can be replaced, and everything that is not required can be removed. All components can be substituted with ones that match specific needs. It is a kit, very much in the Docker philosophy of batteries included but swappable. LinuxKit is an open source project available at https://github.com/linuxkit/linuxkit. To achieve our goals of a secure, lean and portable OS,we built it from containers, for containers.  Security is a top-level objective and aligns with NIST stating, in their Continue reading…

What is Notary and why is it important to CNCF?

As you may have heard, the Notary project has been invited to join the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). Much like its real world namesake, Notary is a platform for establishing trust over pieces of content. In life, certain important events such as buying a house are facilitated by a trusted third party called a “notary.” When buying a house, this person is typically employed by the lender to verify your identity and serve as a witness to your signatures on the mortgage agreement. The notary carries a special stamp and will also sign the documents as an affirmation that a notary was present and verified all the required information relating to the borrowers. In a similar manner, the Notary project, initially sponsored by Docker, is designed to provide high levels of trust  over digital content using strong cryptographic signatures. In addition 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…

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…

Moby Project and Open Source Summit North America

Docker will be at Open Source Summit in Los Angeles, CA from September 11-14th to highlight new development with the Moby Project and it’s various components: containerd, LinuxKit, InfraKit, Notary, etc. Come see us at Booth #510 to learn more about: The different uses cases for the Moby Projects and components The difference between Docker and the Moby Project How to get started with each component As part of the OSS NA, Docker is also organizing a Moby Summit on September 14, 2017. Following the success of the previous editions, we’ll keep the same format which consists of short technical talks / demos in the morning and Birds-of-a-Feather in the afternoon.  We have an excellent line up of speakers in store for you and are excited to share the agenda below. We hope that these sessions inspire you to come participate in the Continue reading…

Moby Summit LA alongside Open Source Summit North America

Since the Moby Project introduction at DockerCon 2017 in Austin last April, the Moby Community has been hard at work to further define the Moby project, improve its components (runC, containerd, LinuxKit, InfraKit, SwarmKit, Libnetwork and Notary) and fine processes and clear communication channels. All project maintainers are developing these aspects in the open with the support of the community. Contributors are getting involved on GitHub, giving feedback on the Moby Project Discourse forum and asking questions on Slack. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for the Moby Project components have been formed based on the Kubernetes model for Open Source collaboration. These SIGs ensure a high level of transparency and synchronization between project maintainers and a community of heterogeneous contributors. In addition to these online channels and meetings, the Moby community hosts regular meetups and summits. Check out the videos and slides from the last Continue reading…

Moby Summit June 2017 Recap

On June 19 2017, 90 members of the Moby community gathered at Docker headquarter in San Francisco for the second Moby Summit.  This was an opportunity for the community to discuss the progress and future of the Moby project, two months after it was announced. We started the day with an introduction by Solomon Hykes, and a look at the website redesign: the Moby project website now has a blog, an event calendar, a list of projects, and a community page with links to various community resources. The website code is open source, issues and PRs to make it better are welcome. Then each team gave an update on their progress: Linuxkit, containerd, InfraKit, SwarmKit and LibNetwork, as well as the three new Moby Special Interest Groups, Linuxkit Security, Security Scanning & Notary and Orchestration Security. All these talks have been Continue reading…
