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

 

Easy Onboarding

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.

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 with Linux, Windows, and/or GPU-equipped worker nodes.

Full Platform Integration

The only container platform with Kubernetes that includes a secure container runtime that’s FIPS 140-2 Validated, an integrated image registry solution (Docker Trusted Registry) with built-in scanning and signing, Calico networking, and Istio ingress.

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

Out-of-the-box Networking

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.
