A few weeks ago we announced Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), the trusted, certified and supported container platform. Docker EE enables IT teams to establish a Containers as a Service (CaaS) environment to converge legacy, ISV and microservices apps into a single software supply chain that is flexible, secure and infrastructure independent. With a built in orchestration architecture (swarm mode) Docker EE allows app teams to compose and schedule simple to complex apps to drive their digital transformation initiatives. On March 14th we hosted a live webinar to provide an overview and demonstration of Docker EE. View the recorded session below…

Docker Datacenter customer, Shawn Bower of Cornell University recently shared their experiences in containerizing Confluence as being the start of their Docker journey. Through that project they were able to demonstrate a 10X savings in application maintenance, reduce the time to build a disaster recovery plan from days to 30 minutes and improve the security profile of their Confluence deployment. This change allowed the Cloudification team that Shawn leads to start spending the majority of their time helping Cornelians to use technology to be innovative. Since the original blog was posted, there’s been a lot of requests to get the pragmatic info…
