Docker Desktop delivers the speed, choice, and security you need for designing and delivering these containerized applications on your desktop. Docker Desktop includes Docker App, developer tools, Kubernetes, and version synchronization to production Docker Engines. Docker Desktop allows you to leverage certified images and templates and your choice of languages and tools. Development workflows leverage Docker Hub to extend your development environment to a secure repository for rapid auto-building, continuous integration, and secure collaboration.
Kubernetes has become the standard orchestration platform for containers. All the major cloud providers support it, making it the logical choice for organizations looking to move more applications to the cloud.
Kubernetes provides a common framework to run distributed systems so development teams have consistent, immutable infrastructure from development to production for every project. Kubernetes can manage scaling requirements, availability, failover, deployment patterns, and more.
Kubernetes’ capabilities include:
Kubernetes has many powerful and advanced capabilities. For teams that have the skills and knowledge to get the most of it, Kubernetes delivers:
However, Kubernetes’ complexity is overwhelming for a lot of people jumping in for the first time. The primary early adopters of Kubernetes have been sophisticated, tribal sets of developers from larger scale organizations with a do-it-yourself culture and strong independent developer teams with the skills to “roll their own” Kubernetes.
As the mainstream begins to look at adopting Kubernetes internally, this approach is often what is referenced in the broader community today. But this approach may not be right for every organization.
While Kubernetes has advanced capabilities, all that power comes with a price; jumping into the cockpit of a state-of-the-art jet puts a lot of power under you, but how to actually fly the thing is not obvious.
