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…

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…

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…

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…

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.

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…
