Walk, Jog, Run: Getting Smarter About Docker

  I’ve spent most of the summer traveling to and speaking at a lot of different trade shows: EMC World, Cisco Live!, VMworld, HP Discover, Dockercon, and LinuxCon (as well as some meetups and smaller gatherings). A lot of the time, I’m speaking to people who are just getting familiar with Docker. They may have read an article or have had someone walk into their office and say “This Docker thing, so hot right now. Go figure it out”. Certainly there are a number of companies running Docker in production, but there are still many who are asking fundamental questions about what Docker is, and how it can benefit their organization. To help folks out in that regard, I wrote an eBook. After someone gets a grasp on what Docker is, they tend to want to dive in and start Continue reading…

Tutorial: Role Based Access Control in Universal Control Plane

It’s been an exciting time for us since we released Docker Datacenter a couple of week ago, which included the GA of Universal Control Plane (UCP), our on-premises or VPC deployable management and orchestration solution for containers. Thank you for the enthusiastic response, and we’ll continue to deliver enterprise-grade feature sets into the Docker Datacenter platform. One such feature we delivered in UCP 1.0 was Role Based Access Control (RBAC)—deciding and enforcing who gets access to which resources. This is a really important and complex component of commercial IT infrastructure. This tutorial walks through how the feature is implemented in UCP and demonstrating it with an example.

#SwarmWeek: It’s a Wrap – Thanks Y’all!

Thank You. Wow what a week! When we first brainstormed Swarm Week, it was to help spread awareness of Docker Swarm to the community. What we did not anticipate was the tremendous support from the community to proactively share your knowledge, experiences and experiments with each other so publicly. We had a lot of fun starting new conversations and learning about what people are doing with Swarm. Our hope is that this week inspires you to try something new and push your Swarm to the limit. If you missed any part of Swarm Week, here is the recap of some useful tutorials, case studies and articles designed to enhance your knowledge of Docker Swarm.

Follow along this three video series and you will setup a basic Swarm cluster with a high availability configuration and setup TLS for secure communications. You’ll learn everything you need to set-up a production environment. So let’s get to it!
