Docker Enterprise was built to be secure by default. When you build a secure by default platform, you need to consider security validation and governmental use. Docker Enterprise has become the first container platform to complete the Security Technical Implementation Guides (STIG) certification process. Thanks to Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) for its support and sponsorship. Being the first container platform to complete the STIG process through DISA means a great deal to the entire Docker team.
It’s Women in Tech Week, and we want to take the opportunity to celebrate some of the amazing women who make a tremendous impact at Docker – this week, and every week – helping developers build modern apps. What is your job? Software Engineer. I build systems, write and review code, test and analyze software. I’ve always worked on infrastructure software both at and before Docker. I participate in Moby and Kubernetes OSS projects. My current work is on persistent storage for Kubernetes workloads and integrating it with Docker’s Universal Control Plane. I also enjoy speaking at technical conferences and…
One common misperception that we heard in the webinar — that Docker and Kubernetes are competitors. In fact, Kubernetes is better with Docker. And Docker is better with Kubernetes.
With the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT) combined with global rollout of 5G (Fifth-generation wireless network technology), a perfect storm is brewing that will see higher speeds, extreme lower latency, and greater network capacity that will deliver on the hype of IoT connectivity. As part of our strategic partnership, Docker will be participating at ARM TechCon scheduled this October 8-10, 2019 at the San Jose Convention Center. Docker is excited to announce that we will be delivering a hands-on workshop exclusive to All-Access Pass holders in attendance.
When you get on a cruise ship or go to a major resort, there’s a lot happening behind the scenes. Thousands of people work to create amazing, memorable experiences, often out of sight. And increasingly, technology helps them make those experiences even better. We sat down recently with Todd Heard, VP of Infrastructure at Carnival Corporation, to find out how technology like Docker helps them create memorable experiences for their guests. Todd and some of his colleagues worked at Disney in the past, so they know a thing or two about memorable experiences.
We had a great turnout to our recent webinar “Demystifying VMs, Containers, and Kubernetes in the Hybrid Cloud Era” and tons of questions came in via the chat — so many that we weren’t able to answer all of them in real-time or in the Q&A at the end. We’ll cover the answers to the top questions in two posts (yes, there were a lot of questions!).
There are now a number of options for running certified Kubernetes in the cloud. But let’s say you’re looking to adopt and operationalize Kubernetes for production workloads on-premises. What then? For an on-premises certified Kubernetes distribution, you need an enterprise container platform that allows you to leverage your existing team and processes. In this blog series, I’ll explain Kubernetes support and capabilities under Docker Enterprise 3.0,
In this series’ final installment, I’ll explain how to provision storage to a Kubernetes application. The final component we want to think about when we build applications for Kubernetes is storage. Remember, a container’s filesystem is transient, and any data kept there is at risk of being deleted along with your container if that container ever exits or is rescheduled. If we want to guarantee that data lives beyond the short lifecycle of a container, we must write it out to external storage.
