New Tool to Migrate From V1 Registry to Docker Trusted Registry or V2 Open Source Registry

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger The distribution and management of Docker images are made possible by various registry services including: Docker Hub, Docker Trusted Registry and Docker Open Source Registry. Both Docker Hub and Docker Trusted Registry are commercial products that incorporate the open source registry capabilities into their respective solutions. Docker Hub is a multi-tenant service hosted by Docker while Docker Trusted Registry and open source Registry provide users with the option to host private registries behind their own firewall or dedicated cloud environment. In April of 2015, we released Docker Registry 2.0 which included a complete rewrite in Go and the new Docker Registry HTTP API v2. Upon release, Docker Registry 2.0 was put into production on Docker Hub for users of the Docker Engine 1.6 or greater making the integration of the quicker, more reliable registry was transparent Continue reading…

Online meetup recap: A new model for image distribution

  Continuing our Docker Online meetup series centered on the Docker 1.6 release, we are pleased to share the video recording from Tuesday’s webinar with Stephen Day, distribution tech lead at Docker. In this session, Stephen first gives a little history around the first version of the Docker Registry API V1 before introducing the design of Docker Registry HTTP API V2 and implementation of Registry 2.0. Stephen ends the talk with a preview of the future of Docker image distribution. Check out the video recording and the slides below for more details!

Docker 1.6: Engine & Orchestration Updates, Registry 2.0, & Windows Client Preview

We are happy to announce updates to Docker Engine, Registry, Compose, Swarm, and Machine. We are releasing them all at the same time so you can test and roll them out together, and so that we can ship features that span multiple tools. The features in this release are designed to improve the dev experience with faster image pulls, a preview of Docker client for Windows, and support for apps beyond the dev environment in Compose. Docker Engine 1.6 The Docker Engine has been greatly improved since 1.5, with some highly requested features in addition to Windows Client support. We could not have created such an amazing release without the help from awesome contributors. You can get started by downloading Docker Engine 1.6 and checking out the changelog here. Now let’s check out what’s new in Docker Engine 1.6.  

Faster and Better Image Distribution with Registry 2.0 and Engine 1.6

There has been incredible growth in the usage of Docker Hub: we have now served over 300 million pulls to developers around the world, and will soon be serving 100 million per month. The current generation of the Registry has done a good job so far, but we know we need a better foundation to support this growth and keep your image pulls running fast and reliably. We’re pleased to announce a huge update to how images are distributed, which will make pulling images dramatically faster and more reliable. It’s the foundation that will support image distribution in years to come.  Docker Engine 1.6, the Docker Hub and the self-hosted Registry now support a new API which has been completely redesigned with this type of performance and scale in mind. It features: Faster image pulls: Downloading images with lots of Continue reading…
