Get Docker on Demand for Amazon Web Services

Docker Trusted Registry, Docker Engine and Business Day Support available for a free 30 day trial to build, ship and run distributed applications in Amazon Web Services. Amazon Web Services (AWS) is a popular place for companies of all sizes to run their test farms and production clusters. Many of the world’s most popular websites like Yelp, Gilt and Spotify run at scale on AWS using Docker.   We started simplifying the developer workflow earlier this year with an AWS driver for Docker Machine to automate the provisioning of AWS instances and deploying Docker Engine with the single command ‘machine create’. At DockerCon, we added Docker Trusted Registry AMI on the AWS Marketplace to allow development teams to store, manage and collaborate on their Docker images with a registry service deployable in your AWS VPC, and today we take that Continue reading…

Announcing Docker 1.8: Content Trust, Toolbox, and Updates to Registry and Orchestration

We’re thrilled to announce Docker 1.8 with support for image signing, a new installer, as well as incremental improvements to Engine, Compose, Swarm, Machine and Registry. You’ve been telling us that you want Docker to be more extensible and composed of smaller, standalone components. We hear you loud and clear. In June, we announced our intention to release runC as a separate piece of plumbing. With this release we’re taking another step towards that goal. The system powering image signing has been implemented as a separate piece of plumbing called Notary, and volume plugins, an experimental feature in 1.7, has now been promoted to the stable release. Across the board we’ve been making the usual quality improvements – something we know is important to all of you running Docker in production.

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: Docker Compose 1.2

Continuing our Docker Online meetup series centered on the Docker 1.6 release, we are pleased to share the video recording from Wednesday’s webinar with Aanand Prasad the lead maintainer of Compose. In this session, Aanand detailed new key features and the first step towards a Docker Compose / Swarm integration. Thank you for all of your brilliant questions and we look forward to seeing you next week for the final presentation of the series with Stephen Day. Stephen will walk us through the central architecture of Docker Registry 2.0 for pushing and pulling images. He will leave plenty of time to take your questions. RSVP to stay up to speed on event details.

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…

Docker workshop #2 @Twitter

The second Docker Workshop in San Francisco was hosted by Twitter on November 5th. About 100 participants joined the workshop to get their hands on Docker. The audience was split up into 2 groups based on level and interest so that we could address different topics. While the beginners were given an introduction to Docker, CLI and dockerfile basics, the more advanced people learned how to Dockerize an application and how to use their own private registry.      

How to use your own Registry

One of the things that makes Docker so useful is how easy it is to pull ready-to-use images from a central location, Docker’s Central Registry. It is just as easy to push your own image (or collection of tagged images as a repository) to the same public registry so that everyone can benefit from your newly Dockerized service. But sometimes you can’t share your repository with the world because it contains proprietary code or confidential information. Today we are introducing an easy way to share repositories on your own registry so that you can control access to them and still share them among multiple Docker daemons. You can decide if your registry is public or private. You’ll need the latest version of Docker (>=0.5.0) to use this new feature, and you must run this version as both the daemon and the client. You’ll Continue reading…
