Docker, Inc. Key Developments

Docker Enters Commercial Partnership with Microsoft

Docker reported a commercial partnership with Microsoft to enable enterprises to modernize their application environments and create hybrid Windows applications using Commercially Supported Docker Engine (CS Docker Engine) and Docker Datacenter with Windows Server 2016. As part of a new agreement, Microsoft and Docker will make the CS Docker Engine available to Windows Server 2016 customers at no additional cost. This will enable organizations to innovate more rapidly and accelerate time-to-value when building, shipping and running distributed applications. Docker Datacenter helps organizations manage heterogeneous environments of Windows and Linux workloads, running in both on-premises and cloud-based infrastructure, such as Microsoft Azure. As part of the commercial relationship, Microsoft will provide enterprise support options for CS Docker Engine, backed by Docker, Inc. As part of the agreement, Docker and Microsoft will jointly promote Docker Datacenter, further enabling IT Pros to better secure the Windows software supply chain and manage containerized Windows workloads, whether on-premises, in the cloud or in hybrid environments. Working with Docker, Microsoft is bringing the benefits of Docker on Linux to Windows developers and IT pros, to provide one platform for the entire application journey, whether organizations are Dockerizing legacy apps, moving those apps to microservices, or creating new applications.

Synnex Signs North American Distribution Agreement with Docker

SYNNEX Corporation has signed a North American distribution agreement with Docker, Inc., which develops an open platform for building, shipping, and running distributed applications. As demand shifts in the public sector market to build out environments for more agile application lifecycles, the need for Docker's container technology has risen. SYNNEX is introducing Docker into its deep public sector and commercial network of resellers. Docker provides an integrated platform that enables development and IT operations teams to build, ship, and run distributed applications anywhere. The most common uses for Docker are Containers-as-a Service (CaaS), hybrid cloud, continuous integration and continuous deployment, DevOps, big data analytics and infrastructure optimization. Docker is portable across the entire application lifecycle and across any infrastructure from a developers' laptop to a VM-based data center to any public cloud provider.

Docker, Inc. Announces the Beta Release of Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows

Docker, Inc. announced the beta release of Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows. The two new releases represent significant software architecture changes that were made to optimize Docker for an OS-native experience. As native Mac and Windows apps, Docker can now be installed, launched and utilized from a system toolbar just like any other packaged application available in native App Stores. Docker for Mac and Windows include extensive system-level development that directly integrates Docker with host-native virtualization, networking, filesystems and security capabilities. Users for the first time now have a uniform Docker experience across Linux, Mac and Windows platforms. These integrated products include Docker Compose and Notary tools and offer a streamlined installation process that no longer requires non-system, third-party software like VirtualBox. This results in significantly faster performance and improves the user experience in terms of developer workflow and file synchronization for editing and testing code. Docker for Mac and Windows currently has functionality for Linux containers, but later this year will support Windows containers. Docker for Mac and Docker for Windows are scheduled to be generally available later this year. System Requirements for Docker for Mac: Minimum OS Version: a Mac running OS X 10.10.3 Yosemite or newer. System Requirements for Docker for Windows: Windows 10 Pro (1511 November update, Build 10586) and above, with Hyper-V package installed.
