It is an enterprise-ready container platform that automates the delivery of applications using an agile operating model with integrated security. Join members of the Docker product team as we walk through how you can leverage Docker Enterprise to construct a pipeline to create new apps on Docker Desktop or modernize traditional apps using Docker Application Converter, move apps through a secure supply chain with Docker Trusted Registry, and deploy and monitor the apps at scale in Universal Control Plane.
- Overview and architecture of Docker Enterprise technical solution
- Locking down a multi-tenant deployment by limiting user access to specific cluster nodes and API/CLI/UI permissions
- Using Compose to simplify Dev app creation while leveraging both Swarm and Kubernetes for maximum Ops flexibility
- Creating a secure supply chain that scans your apps for vulnerabilities and cryptographically signs them for verification
Stick around for tips and tricks running Docker at scale, and demos of new features!

Business Track: #bigwhale: An Unexpected Journey @ Lockheed Martin
June 15th, 2018, as my Agile Development Team and I were wrapping up a fantastic experience at DockerCon 2018 US and entering the BETA phase of our Enterprise Containerization as a Service (CaaS) we understood the importance and criticality of completing our work and going to production. Part 1 of our journey was now behind us and we needed to look forward to #bigwhale: An Unexpected Journey @ Lockheed Martin - Part 2.
As innovation accelerates and customer needs rapidly evolve, Lockheed Martin is becoming increasingly agile. Quickly responding to customer requirements is key, and to facilitate overall business goals, Enterprise IT is demonstrating its agility.
This presentation will focus on the steps it took to go production, expansion of our apps, services, and containers running in our Enterprise Docker cluster. I will also focus on lessons learned from running our enterprise Wordpress platform to business area app supporting enterprise scale augmented reality to health and monitoring and most importantly lessons learned around container security. I will also highlight marketing and promotion of lab services to include an internal enterprise offering of Play with Docker ran out of my I2 Labs!

Business Track: Accelerating Your DevOps Journey: People First. Technology Second.
In this session, we will introduce the Ascensus DevOps journey, and how we changed culture, and engineering strategy in order to accelerate DevOps in the organization. You need to consider cost, training, and what are the actual savings and output that will be experienced upon execution of the plan. Here we’ll cover topics like reducing time for delivery on application infrastructure and architecture, moving of legacy applications, increased server utilization and decreased management costs, and finally integration into our CI/CD pipeline without major disruption. Of course, all of this can’t be done without people, and DevOps is about culture, so we’ll cover how we socialized DevOps within the organization using training, sharing success stories, and helping people to envision the potential of its uses in their projects.
Presented by Patrick Santry, Director, Program Architect, Ascensus
Tech Track: Building Your Production Tech Stack for Docker Container Platform
This session will focus on the practicals of building a fully-functional stack of container cluster tools, with different options for stacking those tools from the OS-up.
We’ve all seen examples of common technologies stacks, like the good ol’ LAMP and MEAN stacks for apps, but what about lower-level infrastructure? And can we get it without cloud vendor lock in please? Oh and pure containers and infrastructure-as-code too?
With Docker, sure thing! This session will cover:
- Which OS/Distro and Kernel to use
- VM’s or Bare Metal
- Recommended Swarm architectures
- Tool stacks for “pure open source”, “cloud-service based”, and “Docker EE” scenarios
