Docker and Microsoft have been working together since 2014 to bring containers to Windows and .NET applications. Today at DockerCon, we share the next step in this partnership with the preview and demonstration of Kubernetes on Windows Server with Docker Enterprise Edition. Docker and Microsoft Advance Windows Containers Docker and Microsoft brought container technology into Windows Server 2016, ensuring consistency for the same Docker Compose …
This week at DockerCon, Docker made several announcements, but one in particular caused massive confusion as users thought that “Docker” was becoming “Moby.”
Now we’re going to get deeper into Kubernetes development by looking at creating new Docker images so you can deploy your own applications and make them available to other people.
This is not Docker Swarm as a separate product, it’s swarm integrated natively into Docker Engine, so that it can be turned on and off and provide orchestration without programming.
Let’s look at what’s really going on behind the scenes by building a containerized application on OpenStack using native Docker tools.
There’s lots of talk about multi-cloud environments, but not everyone realizes it’s already possible to create a single cloud that can span, say, OpenStack and Google Container Engine.
HPE has made some interesting moves, announcing both a new set of tools optimized for containers at DockerCon Europe, and a new agreement to become a reseller of Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform.
As OpenStack matures and begins to see serious adoption in real world production environments, the community takes a more practical look at where it fits into the technology ecosystem.
Even now, the conversations are still going on, as developers and architects try to decide on the “right” way to construct these applications — and whether and where OpenStack fits into the picture.
Most companies choose a distribution — and the support that comes with it — for OpenStack. You can see the same phenomenon at play in the nascent world of containers and container orchestration.
If you’re building applications for OpenStack and deploying them with Docker containers, you need a powerful, usable management tool to integrate with OpenStack. That tool is Kubernetes.
