IBM and Docker offer integrated container solutions that can meet the diverse needs of enterprises. Supporting the creation and deployment of multi-platform, multi-container workloads across hybrid infrastructures, IBM and Docker accelerate application delivery and enable application lifecycle management for Dockerized containers. This includes:
Designed to help you deploy and support your distributed applications throughout the entire lifecycle, this package includes:
Docker Trusted Registry is available as a bundle inclusive of Docker Engine and commercial support subscription with varying support tiers that match your application SLAs. The Docker Subscription is available as a free 30 day trial, monthly or annual subscription. View Plans and Pricing.
Run enterprise Docker on-premises, off-premises & in hybrid environments
Docker and IBM continue to work together around open standards and open technology. In the area of commercial offerings, IBM resells Docker Subscription and provides level 1 and level 2 support.
Docker Trusted Registry brings the capabilities of Docker Hub on premises. It enables customers to create a private image repository of Docker images behind their firewall.
IBM is Docker’s lead with partner to bring containers to production. Together, Docker and IBM bring hybrid cloud portability to production applications
• Docker Trusted Registry and IBM UrbanCode enable multi-platform and multi-container deployments to hybrid clouds
• Docker Trusted Registry and IBM PureApplication help speed application deployments by including Docker containers as part of PureApplication patterns
• Docker Trusted Registry comes with IBM’s world class level 1 and level 2 support that is critical for production environments
Yes. Trusted Registry and IBM Containers on Bluemix can both share (via push/pull commands) the same container images, thereby enabling workload portability across hybrid environments.
The DTR reseller agreement with IBM is currently in place for North America, Europe, Australia and New Zealand.
Yes, the Docker open source solutions can run on pLinux and zLinux. However, commercial support for these platforms are not yet available.
IBM’s added value is in three key areas:
1. Integration with UrbanCode. Docker Trusted Registry is a great complement to IBM UrbanCode by enabling multi-platform, multi-container deployments to hybrid clouds. As part of a DevOps implementation, customers can now coordinate and automate the deployment of multi-container application across different stages of the delivery pipeline, as well as manage promotions, approvals, and inventory. A no-charge plug-in for UrbanCode Deploy integrates with Docker Trusted Registry and pulls images from the Docker container registry. In addition, IBM UrbanCode Build enables continuous integration of changes to Docker images.
2. Integration with PureApplication. Docker Trusted Registry also works with IBM PureApplication and helps speed application deployments by including Docker containers as part of PureApplication patterns.
3. Supported by IBM. In addition to being Docker’s lead partner for DTR, the offering comes with IBM’s world class support. This provides clients with a higher level of support necessary for most production environments.
Docker containers can be components within a PureApplication pattern. By using the PureApplication System Pattern Builder, a customer can include and configure Docker containers in a pattern. You can then build, deploy and run patterns with Docker containers on PureApplication System, Service and Software. Docker containers can then be included in PureApplication’s enterprise-grade lifecycle management capabilities. PureApplication can also deploy as a shared service a private Docker registry pattern.
