October 1st was not only the date of our Docker Hack Day #7 but also the first Online 101 Session broadcasted through google hangout on air. Below you will find a few comments, photos and videos of these two events. Online 101 Session: Nick Stinemates (picture here below) gave an introduction to what Docker is all about and how you can use Docker for Multi-Cloud Deployment. Over the next few months, we will be having more online sessions to make Docker accessible to our growing community overseas.

One of the (many!) features of Docker 0.6 is the new “privileged” mode for containers. It allows you to run some containers with (almost) all the capabilities of their host machine, regarding kernel features and device access. Among the (many!) possibilities of the “privileged” mode, you can now run Docker within Docker itself. First, we will see how to make that happen; next, we will explain what is involved under the hood, and finally, we will show something even more powerful than Docker in Docker! See Docker-in-Docker in action If you have Docker 0.6, all you have to do is:…

Our hackday #6 was a success, with over 60 participants and, amongst others, great talks about how people are using it in EBay, Mailgun (Rackspace) and CloudFlare. These are the lightning talks users gave during the Hack Day. Ted Dzubia on how he uses docker at Ebay Sasha’s presentation can be found on SpeakerDeck.

I am thrilled to be joining dotCloud as CEO and excited to be joining the talented, passionate and rapidly growing Docker community. I started following dotCloud in 2011, when the standard PaaS model was to offer a single stack that ran on a single provider’s infrastructure. I was impressed by dotCloud’s vision of a multi-language PaaS, which offered developers a wide variety of different stacks that worked well together. In the process, dotCloud built a great business around public PaaS. In the past two years, however, it has become clear that the industry has a set of opportunities that even…

One of the things that makes Docker so useful is how easy it is to pull ready-to-use images from a central location, Docker’s Central Registry. It is just as easy to push your own image (or collection of tagged images as a repository) to the same public registry so that everyone can benefit from your newly Dockerized service. But sometimes you can’t share your repository with the world because it contains proprietary code or confidential information. Today we are introducing an easy way to share repositories on your own registry so that you can control access to them and still share them among…

We are very excited to announce that dotCloud has joined the Linux Foundation. The Linux Foundation is a nonprofit consortium dedicated to fostering the growth of Linux and collaborative software development. Docker obviously depends on a number of technologies developed by the members of the Linux community—including LinuX Containers (LXC), cgroups, and the kernel itself. Ultimately, our goal is to build the “button” that enables any code to instantly and consistently run on any server anywhere. Achieving that goal is dependent not only on having a thriving open source community for Docker, but also by the continued success and spread…
