Docker Introduces Docker Hub and Official Repo Program

(DockerCon) – Docker,
Inc., the commercial entity behind the open source Docker project,
today announced the launch of Docker Hub and the Docker Official
Repository program. Docker Hub provides cloud-based platform services
for distributed applications, including container image distribution and
change management, user and team collaboration, lifecycle workflow
automation and third-party services integrations. A major feature of
Docker Hub is the availability of optimized, maintained and supported
“Dockerized” applications through the Docker Official Repository program.
Docker is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship
and run distributed applications. Consisting of the Docker Engine, the de
facto container standard, and Docker Hub, a cloud-based service for
users, content and workflows, Docker enables applications to be quickly
assembled from components and eliminates the friction between
environments. As a result, IT can ship faster and run the same app,
unchanged, on laptops, data center VMs or the cloud.
“Enterprise organizations are seeking and sometimes struggling to make
applications and workloads more portable and distributed in an
effective, standardized and repeatable way,” said Jay Lyman, senior
analyst at 451 Research. “Just as GitHub stimulated collaboration and
innovation by making source code shareable, Docker Hub, Official Repos
and commercial support are helping enterprises to answer this challenge
by improving the way they package, deploy and manage applications.”
Docker Hub’s services help developers and sysadmins build, ship and run
distributed applications built on Docker Engine. Major features include:
An integrated Console for managing users, teams, containers,
repositories, and workflows;
The Docker Hub Registry, offering more than 14,000 “Dockerized”
applications, available to all users as building blocks for their own
Collaboration tools, enabling users to manage and share their
applications through both public and private repositories, and to
invite collaborators to participate in any stage of the application
The Automated Build Service, which keeps applications
up-to-date by automatically rebuilding and updating an application’s
public or private repository whenever the source code is updated on
GitHub or Atlassian Bitbucket. Over 25 percent of the more than 14,000
Dockerized applications in the Docker Hub Registry are now created
using Automated Builds, providing both automation and end-user
assurance of container origin;
The Webhooks service, which enables users to automate
repetitive workflows for build pipelines or continuous deployment.
Interoperable with any RESTful API, webhooks enables organizations to
take advantage of the web APIs published by any service or software
package, like GitHub, AWS, or Jenkins; and
The Docker Hub API, which includes a user authentication
service, so that third party applications and services can gain
authenticated access to applications in a user’s public and private
repositories. Third-party services that have already integrated with
the Docker Hub API include AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Deis, Drone.io,
Google Compute Engine, Orchard, Rackspace, Red Hat, Tutum, and many
"As heavy users of Docker ourselves, we see first hand how Docker shares
the Atlassian focus to provide tools to developers for better team
collaboration and productivity,” said Eric Wittman, general manager of
the developer tools business unit at Atlassian. “We are excited to be
integrating Bitbucket and Docker Hub, combining the best of both the
Atlassian and Docker platforms. Users of Bitbucket will now be able to
build Dockerized versions of their applications automatically from their
A major feature of Docker Hub is Official Repositories –
“Dockerized” applications that are optimized, maintained, and supported
and available to all Docker Hub users. Initially encompassing the top 13
most-searched-for applications in the Docker Hub Registry – including
CentOS, MongoDB, MySQL, Nginx, Redis, Ubuntu, and WordPress – the
program is open to any community group or software ISV willing to commit
resources to on-going maintenance of an application according to the
program’s guidelines. For more information, contact [email protected].
“The DevOps movement is transforming the vast majority of the software
industry, however its impact is particularly disruptive in high
performance Big Data processing,” said Lonne Jaffe, CEO, Syncsort. “This
is why we moved quickly to launch Ironcluster ETL, Docker Edition in the
Docker Hub, along with a 30-day free trial. Our customers and partners
can now procure and rapidly deploy Ironcluster ETL in scalable,
lightweight and portable Docker containers, both on-premise or in the
cloud, taking advantage of all of Docker’s platform services.”

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care.
I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind.
Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph.
