Since the Moby Project introduction at DockerCon 2017 in Austin last April, the Moby Community has been hard at work to further define the Moby project, improve its components (runC, containerd, LinuxKit, InfraKit, SwarmKit, Libnetwork and Notary) and fine processes and clear communication channels. All project maintainers are developing these aspects in the open with the support of the community. Contributors are getting involved on GitHub, giving feedback on the Moby Project Discourse forum and asking questions on Slack. Special Interest Groups (SIGs) for the Moby Project components have been formed based on the Kubernetes model for Open Source collaboration. These SIGs ensure a…

On June 19 2017, 90 members of the Moby community gathered at Docker headquarter in San Francisco for the second Moby Summit.  This was an opportunity for the community to discuss the progress and future of the Moby project, two months after it was announced. We started the day with an introduction by Solomon Hykes, and a look at the website redesign: the Moby project website now has a blog, an event calendar, a list of projects, and a community page with links to various community resources. The website code is open source, issues and PRs to make it better are…

Last month at DockerCon, we introduced the Moby Project: an open-source project sponsored by Docker to advance the software containerization movement. The idea behind the project is to help the ecosystem take containers mainstream by providing a library of components, a framework for assembling them into custom container-based systems and a place for all container enthusiasts to experiment and exchange ideas. Going forward, Docker will be assembled using Moby, see Moby and Docker or the diagram below for more details. Moby Summit at DockerCon 2017 Knowing that that a good number of maintainers, contributors and advanced Docker users would be attending DockerCon, we…

Back in October 2016, Docker released Infrakit, an open source toolkit for creating and managing declarative, self-healing infrastructure. This is the second in a two part series that dives more deeply into the internals of InfraKit. Introduction In the first installment of this two part series about the internals of InfraKit, we presented InfraKit’s design, architecture, and approach to high availability.  We also discussed how it can be combined with other systems to give distributed computing clusters self-healing and self-managing properties. In this installment, we present an example of leveraging Docker Engine in Swarm Mode to achieve high availability for InfraKit,…

In case you missed it last month, we announced that Docker is extracting a key component of its container platform, a part of the engine plumbing called containerd – a core container runtime – and committed to donating it to an open foundation. You can find up-to-date roadmap, architecture and API definitions in the Github repository, and more details about the project in our engineering team’s blog post. You can also watch the following video recording of the containerd online meetup, for a summary and Q&A with Arnaud Porterie, Michael Crosby, Stephen Day, Patrick Chanezon and Solomon Hykes from the Docker team: Here is the list…

  The last week of October 2016 is over and you know what that means; another Docker news roundup. Highlights include Windows workloads with Image2Docker, part four of the SwarmKit series, and a Docker InfraKit test-drive! As we begin a new week, let’s recap our five top stories: Windows Workloads with Image2Docker – a community supported and designed project to demonstrate the ease of creating Windows Containers from existing servers. Interested parties are encouraged to fork it, play with it and contribute pull requests back to the community. SwarmKit – Part 4 –  a tutorial series on Docker SwarmKit led by Gabriel Schenker….

Following LinuxCon Europe in Berlin last week, we organized a first of its kind Docker event called Docker Distributed Systems Summit. This two day event was an opportunity for core Docker engineers and Docker experts from the community to learn, collaborate, problem-solve and hack around the next generation of distributed systems in areas such as orchestration, networking, security and storage. More specifically, the goal of the summit was to dive deep into Docker’s infrastructure plumbing tools and internals: SwarmKit, InfraKit, Hyperkit, Notary, libnetwork, IPVS, Raft, TUF and provide attendees with the working knowledge of how to leverage these tools while building…

#ContainerCamp UK kicks off tomorrow in the heart of London’s Piccadilly and we can hardly contain our excitement. There are loads of Docker talks that you won’t want to miss!   Friday, September 9th   9:55 am: Ben Firshman, Director of Product Management at Docker – Building serverless apps with Docker Everyone’s talking about serverless right now. For good reason – it’s makes distributed apps much simpler to build, scale, and maintain. In this session, Ben will demonstrate how you can use Docker to mix in serverless techniques – right now – and how serverless is going to change how you…
