The closing keynote at DockerCon is traditionally the Cool Hacks keynote. This year, we featured three great hacks showing off innovative uses of Docker. In this post, I’d like to highlight one in particular, the Kubeflow demo with David Aronchick, and Michelle Casbon. Machine Learning (ML) is becoming increasing popular, and important to enterprises. Kubeflow is an ML toolkit for Kubernetes, developed by Google. It’s a dedicated, portable and scalable approach to machine learning, using tools you’re already using to deploy other applications. It’s great because data scientists can use it to test out model creation on their laptops. And data engineers…

Major business initiatives such as digitization and cloud migration have threatened to disrupt IT organizations that are already spread thin simply supporting the core business. Containerization is viewed as a way to help with these initiatives because they speed the delivery of software and typically cut operational costs by more than 50% in the first year alone. To support a containerization strategy, many enterprises are turning to container platforms to manage and secure the delivery of their mission-critical software from development through production. For customers, choosing the right container platform is more than a technical decision – it is a…

At our recent virtual event, we shared our excitement around Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 2.0 – the most complete enterprise-ready container platform in the market. We shared how this release enables organizations like Liberty Mutual and Franklin American Mortgage Company, both presenters at DockerCon 2018, to efficiently scale their container environment across many teams while delivering choice and flexibility. We demonstrated some of the new advanced capabilities around access controls with secure application zones and building a consistent software supply chain across regions, and highlighted how easy and interchangeable it is to leverage both Swarm and Kubernetes orchestration in the same…

With KubeCon EU happening in Copenhagen, we looked back at the most popular posts with our readers on Docker and Kubernetes. For those of you that have yet to try Docker EE 2.0, this blog highlights how in Docker for Desktops you can use Docker compose to directly deploy an application onto a Kubernetes cluster.  If you’re running an edge version of Docker on your desktop (Docker for Mac or Docker for Windows Desktop), you can now stand up a single-node Kubernetes cluster with the click of a button. While I’m not a developer, I think this is great news for the…

“You are now Certified Kubernetes.” With this comment, Docker for Windows and Docker for Mac passed the Kubernetes conformance tests. Kubernetes has been available in Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows since January, having first being announced at DockerCon EU last year. But why is this important to the many of you who are using Docker for Windows and Docker for Mac? Kubernetes is designed to be a platform that others can build upon. As with any similar project, the risk is that different distributions vary enough that applications aren’t really portable. The Kubernetes project has always been aware of…

Did you know that Docker Hub has millions of users pulling roughly one billion container images every two weeks — and it all runs on Docker Enterprise Edition? Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 may now be available to commercial customers who require an enterprise-ready container platform, but the Docker operations team has already been using it in production for some time. As part of our commitment to delivering high quality software that is ready to support your mission-critical applications, we leverage Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 as the platform behind Docker Hub and our other SaaS services, Docker Store, and Docker Cloud….

  We are excited to announce Docker Enterprise Edition 2.0 – a significant leap forward in our enterprise-ready container platform. Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) 2.0 is the only platform that manages and secures applications on Kubernetes in multi-Linux, multi-OS and multi-cloud customer environments. As a complete platform that integrates and scales with your organization, Docker EE 2.0 gives you the most flexibility and choice over the types of applications supported, orchestrators used, and where it’s deployed. It also enables organizations to operationalize Kubernetes more rapidly with streamlined workflows and helps you deliver safer applications through integrated security solutions. In this…

Two weeks ago we shared how the upcoming release of Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) is able to secure the software supply chain for Kubernetes; just as it does for Docker Swarm through a combination of scanning for vulnerabilities and implementing image promotion policies. In this blog, we’ll take a closer look at another part of this solution – Docker Content Trust and image signing. When combined with granular Role Based Access Controls [RBAC] and the secure clustering features of Docker EE, organizations get a secure container platform solution that is ready for the enterprise. Restricting Unverified Kubernetes Content As discussed in Part 1 of…
