Three new Official Images added in March

We’re excited to announce three new Official Images that we added to Docker Hub in March. These images are part of Docker’s mission to add robust, enterprise-ready development technologies to the Docker ecosystem. Check them out: Alpine Alpine Linux is a Linux distribution built around musl libc and BusyBox. The image is only 5 MB in size and has access to a package repository that is much more complete than other BusyBox-based images. This makes Alpine Linux a great image base for utilities and even production applications.  

Updates Available to Popular Repos – Update Your Images

At Docker, we’re working with our open source community to build a rich ecosystem of containerized images.  In the past year alone, Docker users and partners have created 100,000+ images and pulled 200+ million images from Docker Hub.  We’re proud of our progress to-date, and committed to the developers who rely on Docker images for critical workflows—whether they’re Official Repos released by Docker ourselves, or images created by the community. Before Official Repos, it was members of the community like @Pilwon who got the public repositories going with content for their fellow users. We would like to thank @Pilwon for being an awesome and early creator of community images, which he posted in an account called ‘dockerfile’. Many of these images are very popular within the Docker community and this is a great example of our community stepping up to Continue reading…

Thirteen new Official Repositories added in January and February

We are excited to highlight thirteen new Official Repositories that were added to Docker Hub in January and February. These repos feature popular open-source and enterprise content that will empower dev teams to build and deploy distributed applications.  Check them out: celery Celery is an asynchronous task/job queue based on distributed message-passing.  Celery is written in Python, but the protocol can be implemented in any language.  It is focused on real-time operation, but supports scheduling as well.  Celery is used in production systems to process millions of tasks a day.

DockerCon EU: Introducing Docker Hub Enterprise

There’s many ways to use Hub Enterprise and we’ve seen some pretty cool use cases out in the field. It was great to be on stage at DockerCon in an informal manner. We were able to share what we’ve seen in the wild with Docker Hub Enterprise and dig one level deeper into the overarching philosophy and design principles of the product. In this talk, you get to see differing real world use cases, hear thoughts from us on what we envision for Hub Enterprise, and gather hints at what the future roadmap for Hub Enterprise holds.

Docker Hub Official Repos: Announcing Language Stacks

With Docker containers fast becoming the standard for building blocks for distributed apps, we’re working with the Docker community to make it easier for users to quickly code and assemble their projects.  Official Repos, publicly downloadable for free from the Docker Hub Registry, are curated images informed by user feedback and best practices.  They represent a focused community effort to provide great base images for applications, so developers and sysadmins can focus on building new features and functionality while minimizing repetitive work on commodity scaffolding and plumbing. At DockerCon last June, we announced the first batch of Official Repos which covered many standard tools like OS distributions, web servers, and databases.  At the time, we had several organizations join us to curate Official Repos for their particular project, including Fedora, CentOS, and Canonical.  And the community responded enthusiastically as well: Continue reading…
