Integrated Kubernetes Orchestration

Kubernetes is an open source orchestration system for automating the management, placement, scaling and routing of containers. The Docker Enterprise platform includes a secure and fully-conformant Kubernetes environment for developers and operators of all skill levels, providing out-of-the-box integrations for common enterprise requirements while still enabling complete flexibility for expert users. With the Docker Enterprise platform, organizations can run Kubernetes interchangeably with Swarm orchestration in the same cluster for ultimate flexibility at runtime.

Why Docker for Kubernetes

 

Easy Onboarding

Bringing the simplicity of containers to Kubernetes with intelligent design and streamlined workflows.. Run and scale Kubernetes in production with secure defaults and simplified operations.

Enterprise-Ready

Additional layers of security with built-in encryption and advanced role-based access controls. Ready to scale across multiple tenants and across hybrid/multi-cloud environments.

Full Platform Integration

The only container platform with Kubernetes that includes an integrated  enterprise-grade image registry solution (Docker Trusted Registry) and Calico CNI plugin for a complete and secure software supply chain from the developer to production.

How Docker enhances Kubernetes

 

Advanced Access Controls

Docker Enterprise includes integrated RBAC that works with corporate LDAP, Active Directory, PKI certificates and/or SAML 2.0 identity provider solutions.

LEARN MORE

Simple Multi-Tenancy

Scale Docker Enterprise to support multiple teams through clear separation of resources and node-based isolation. Restrict visibility for different user groups and operate multi-tenant environments with ease.

LEARN MORE

Out-of-the-box Networking

Docker Enterprise includes Project Calico by Tigera as the “batteries included” Kubernetes CNI plug-in for a highly scalable, networking and routing solution. Get access to overlay (IPIP), no overlay, and hybrid data-plane networking models in addition to native Kubernetes ingress controllers for load balancing.

LEARN MORE

Secure by Design

Architected to automatically deploy a secure Kubernetes cluster with mutual TLS authentication. Leverage FIPS 140-2 validated encryption in Docker Engine with your Kubernetes deployment.

LEARN MORE

Integrated Secure Software Supply Chain

The Docker platform offers integrated security for the entire lifecycle of an application. Leverage Docker Content Trust to digitally sign images from the source and prevent unvalidated content from being deployed.

LEARN MORE

Certified Ecosystem and Infrastructure

Deploy and run your Kubernetes environment on fully supported infrastructure. Integrate with validated and certified monitoring and logging tools or leverage storage and networking plugins – all with joint support agreements.
