Applications requirements and networking environments are diverse and sometimes opposing forces. In between applications and the network sits Docker networking, affectionately called the Container Network Model or CNM. It’s CNM that brokers connectivity for your Docker containers and also what abstracts away the diversity and complexity so common in networking. The result is portability and it comes from CNM’s powerful network drivers. These are pluggable interfaces for the Docker Engine, Swarm, and UCP that provide special capabilities like multi-host networking, network layer encryption, and service discovery. Naturally, the next question is which network driver should I use? Each driver offers tradeoffs…

For this week’s Docker Online Meetup, Docker Captains Ajeet Singh Raina, Viktor Farcic and Bret Fisher shared their tips and tricks for built In Docker orchestration. Ajeet talked about the best ways to use Docker 1.12 Service Discovery and shared key takeaways. Viktor talked about best practices for setting a Swarm cluster and integrating it with HAProxy. Bret concluded the meetup with a presentation on Docker 1.12 command options and aliases including cli aliases for quick container management; the shortest path to secure production-ready swarm; how to use cli filters for easier management of larger swarms; and docker remote cli security setup.  …

For this week’s Docker Online Meetup, Sr. Director, Networking at Docker, Madhu Venugopal, joined us to talk about Docker 1.12 Networking and answer questions. Starting with Docker 1.12, Docker has added features to the core Docker Engine to make multi-host and multi-container orchestration simple to use and accessible to everyone. Docker 1.12 Networking plays a key role in enabling these orchestration features. In this online meetup, we learned all the new and exciting networking features introduced in Docker 1.12: Swarm-mode networking Routing Mesh Ingress and Internal Load-Balancing Service Discovery Encrypted Network Control-Plane and Data-Plane Multi-host networking without external KV-Store MACVLAN…

We are extremely excited to announce the first beta release of Swarm, a native clustering tool for Docker. For the past two years, Docker has made the lives of millions of developers easier by making building, shipping and running applications simpler through containers. However, things get complicated when dealing with more than one host for Docker containers in a distributed environment.  This is where Swarm comes in. Swarm pools together several Docker Engines and exposes them as a single virtual Docker Engine. It serves the standard Docker API, so any tool that already works with Docker can now transparently scale…

At DockerCon EU we introduced Docker Swarm: a Docker-native clustering system. It allows you to connect to a single Docker endpoint and run containers on an entire cluster. Docker Swarm comes with a simple discovery service, for an easy setup. If you already have a discover service within your infrastructure like consul or etcd, you can use those instead.

In this session, Tomas Doran explains how Yelp has solved the discovery problems using Airbnb’s SmartStack to dynamically discover service dependencies, and how this is helping unify their architecture, from traditional metal to EC2 ‘immutable’ SOA images, to Docker containers.   Learn More Watch another video from Tomas Doran: “Taking Control of Chaos with Docker and Puppet“ Docker Events and Meetup View the list of upcoming events & meetup Find a Docker meetup group Try Docker and stay up-to-date Try our online tutorial Sign up for Docker Weekly
