Docker extends confidence, security and performance of trusted content and architecture choice directly to AWS developers
Las Vegas – November 29, 2021 – Docker, Inc.®, today announced the availability of Docker Official Images directly from Amazon Web Services, Inc (AWS). The Amazon Elastic Container Registry Public (Amazon ECR Public), a registry service provided by Amazon to manage container images, extends a long-standing collaboration between Docker and AWS to publish Docker Official Images from Docker Hub into Amazon ECR public. This announcement gives developers and development teams the flexibility to download verified, curated container images from their choice of registry, providing them with familiar building blocks to build, ship and run secure applications more quickly.
“Docker Official Images are the single-most popular category of container images because they serve as the starting point for the majority of users and provide drop-in solutions for popular programming language runtimes, data stores, and services all while ensuring that security updates are applied in a timely manner,” said Docker CEO Scott Johnston. “Today we are making these images available to developers using AWS ECR, joining registry partners JFrog and Mirantis to provide trusted content from Docker wherever developers need them.”
With 15.8 billion container image pulls per month from nearly 12.5 million repositories and used by millions of developers, Docker Hub is the industry’s leading container registry. Docker Hub delivers developers the largest breadth and depth of container images and plays a central role in building and sharing cloud-native applications. Docker Official Images are a curated set of images of 160 open source projects popular with developers, including Ubuntu, Mongo, Neo4J, Spring, Python, Kafka, and many others, and now extended for the first time on Amazon ECR Public.
“Customers tell us that they love the simplicity and discoverability that Amazon ECR Public provides, and they want us to continue to expand the content to make it even more useful for building and running containerized applications,” said Deepak Singh, vice president, Compute Services, AWS. “For that reason, we are excited that Docker is bringing the Docker Official Images to Amazon ECR Public. Now, AWS customers can use these images while taking advantage of the unlimited free downloads from ECR Public within AWS regions and 5 TB of free downloads per month outside of AWS regions.”
“At TableCheck, a global restaurant technology platform designed to help restaurants manage their diner experience in-house, we rely on AWS ECR Public’s excellent uptime and robust network to pull images quickly and reliably as a core part of our infrastructure," said Alexander Nicholson, Lead SRE at TableCheck. “With the inclusion of Docker Official Images on ECR Public, that reliability is now extended to images pulled by our developers because they can continue to build with images they already have confidence in - whether it's on Docker Hub or AWS ECR Public.”
Docker also announced today that it has achieved the AWS Graviton Ready designation, part of the Amazon Web Services, Inc. (AWS) Service Ready Program. This designation recognizes that Docker delivers comprehensive support for Graviton/Arm64 across our product line and for Docker Official Images. With this designation, developers can use the exact same development, build, and production workflows regardless of the processor architecture, enabling them to take advantage of the AWS Graviton best-in-class price performance.
Achieving the AWS Graviton Ready designation differentiates Docker as an AWS Partner Network (APN) member with a product integrating with AWS Graviton and is generally available and fully supported for AWS customers. AWS Service Ready Partners have demonstrated success building products integrated with AWS services, helping AWS customers evaluate and use their technology productively, at scale, and with varying levels of complexity. AWS Graviton support rounds out the end-to-end support for Arm development. Docker support for Arm development includes support for Apple M1 processors, to hundreds of thousands of Arm native images on Docker Hub with the ability to compile for multiple architectures from the same code base.
