Kick the Tires on Docker Datacenter with DDC-In-A-Box!

Docker Datacenter (DDC) is a powerful solution for managing your containerized applications in a production environment. But what if you could kick the tires of DDC on your laptop with just a single script command? Welcome to DDC-In-A-Box! DDC-In-A-Box is an evaluation script that I wrote which creates a single virtual machine containing Docker Engine, Universal Control Plane (UCP) and Docker Trusted Registry (DTR). The products are licensed using your own license and integrated with each other so you can test out the push/pull integration between UCP and DTR.

Enabling Portability of Workloads And Fighting Lock-In, with Docker

Portability. This is perhaps one of the greatest characteristics of our Docker Containers-as-a-Service platform. After all, in some way it’s the reason why Docker has become as popular as it has today. In just 3 years, we have seen over 2 billion+ Docker Hub pulls, 400,000+ unique Docker Hub users, 200,000+ Dockerized applications and thousands of customers. A large part of the adoption hinges upon portability, making it clear that portability is a huge part of what our users are looking for. It provides the flexibility both developers and IT operations team need in order to succeed at their jobs. But what exactly is portability? At Docker, we define portability as the ability to move workloads across different infrastructure environments, maintaining consistency while enabling Hybrid Cloud and multi-cloud for the enterprise. Portability is the magic that allows enterprises to move 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.

Video: What’s New in Docker Swarm 1.1

Last week we released our Docker Datacenter solution to the world, bringing container management and deployment to the enterprise with an on-premises Containers-as-a-Service platform. Universal Control Plane, part of the Docker Datacenter solution, enables IT operations teams to manage and deploy their dockerized distributed application anywhere, from behind the firewall. But did you know that UCP sits on top of Docker Swarm? It uses Swarm to create and manage clusters, and because of this, can utilize the very same Docker APIs. Swarm is our production-ready orchestration solutions that serves as a clustering tool for Docker engines.
