Docker Kubernetes Service (DKS)
Deploy, manage and secure applications with globally consistent Kubernetes environments that run anywhere.
Kubernetes Orchestration for Docker Enterprise
Kubernetes is an open source orchestrator that automates the management, placement, scaling and routing of containers. Docker Enterprise includes Docker Kubernetes Service (DKS), a secure and fully-conformant Kubernetes distribution for developers and operators of all skill levels. With Docker Enterprise, organizations can run Kubernetes interchangeably with Swarm orchestration for ultimate flexibility at runtime. DKS clusters can also be attached to a fleet of clusters managed by Docker Enterprise Container Cloud.
Why Docker Kubernetes Service
Rapidly-deployable, scalable, consistent environments on any infrastructure, secure by default. Make DevOps portable: one standard web UI, and one set of familiar tools drive dev, test, and production with minimal variation — no proprietary skills required.
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 with Linux, Windows, and/or GPU-equipped worker nodes.
How Docker Enterprise 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
Multi-Tenancy Made Simple
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
Docker Enterprise includes Calico as the Kubernetes CNI plug-in for a highly scalable networking and routing solution. Gain access to overlay (IPIP), no overlay, and hybrid data-plane networking models. Built-in Istio ingress provides fine-grained gateway controls and load-balancing for applications.LEARN MORE
Secure by Default
Automatically deploy a secure Kubernetes cluster with mutual TLS authentication. Leverage FIPS 140-2 validated encryption in Docker Engine – Enterprise with your Kubernetes deployment.LEARN MORE
Secure Software Supply Chain
Docker Enterprise offers integrated security for the entire lifecycle of an application. Leverage Docker Trusted Registry to centrally scan, sign, and store images to prevent unvalidated content from being deployed.LEARN MORE
Certified Ecosystem and Infrastructure
Deploy and run Kubernetes on fully supported infrastructure. Integrate with vendor-certified monitoring and logging tools or leverage storage and networking plugins.LEARN MORE
