Docker Hub

The world’s leading service for finding and sharing container images with your team and the Docker community.

Share and Collaborate with Docker Hub

Docker Hub is the world’s largest repository of container images with an array of content sources including container community developers, open source projects and independent software vendors (ISV) building and distributing their code in containers. Users get access to free public repositories for storing and sharing images or can choose subscription plan for private repos.

Private Repositories to Share Container Images

Docker Hub is a hosted repository service provided by Docker for finding and sharing container images with your team. Key features include:

  • Private Repositories: Push and pull container images
  • Automated Builds: Automatically build container images from GitHub and Bitbucket and push them to Docker Hub
  • Teams & Organizations: Manage access to private repositories
  • Official Images: Pull and use high-quality container images provided by Docker
  • Publisher Images: Pull and use high-quality container images provided by external vendors. Certified images also include support and guarantee compatibility with Docker Enterprise
  • Webhooks: Trigger actions after a successful push to a repository to integrate Docker Hub with other services

The World’s Largest Community of Container Images

Docker Hub is the central meeting place for container community developers, open source projects and independent software vendors (ISV) building and distributing their code in containers.

For Developers: Store and share your personal projects and see what the container community is building.

For Teams: Leverage private repositories to restrict content to specific users or teams.

For ISVs: List and distribute your software and plugins as containers and reach millions of end users in the container community.

For Enterprises: Choose certified containers from validated ISVs with cooperative support so you have the assurance to run in your production environment.

What is a Container Image?

A container is the running instance of a container image. A container image is an immutable, read-only file with instructions for creating a Docker container. Every time you start a container based on a container image file, you will get the exact same Docker container - no matter where you deploy it.

This allows developers to solve the “works on my machine” issue. It also allows for greater collaboration as container images can be easily shared amongst developers and managed in image repositories like Docker Hub or within an enterprise in a secure, private repository like Docker Trusted Registry.
