Docker Introduces Docker 1.0 and Enterprise Support

(DockerCon) – Docker, Inc., the commercial entity behind the open source Docker project, today announced the release of Docker 1.0 and the Docker Enterprise Support program. The 1.0 release is a milestone following 15 months of rapid innovation and contributions by the Docker community, and indicates that Docker, Inc. is now supporting the use of the Docker platform for enterprise production deployments.

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.

Docker’s 1.0 release was predicated both upon the code meeting the company’s high standards for overall quality, feature completeness, backward compatibility and API stability, as well as the surrounding items necessary for enterprise use. These additional items include robust documentation, complete training materials and programs, and commercial, enterprise support from Docker and a network of partners. While Docker has been ensuring backward compatibility for the past five monthly releases, Docker is now providing Long Term Support assurances for commercial users of Docker 1.0.

“We would like to thank the over 460 contributors to the project – as well as the countless partners, promoters, application publishers and meetup organizers – for helping Docker reach this important milestone,” said Solomon Hykes, CTO and founder of Docker. “We’d also like to salute the many enterprises that ignored our statements about ‘production readiness’ and deployed Docker in prior releases. Your bravery (and unvarnished feedback) has been critical as well.”

The new Docker Enterprise Support program provides enterprise IT customers with the training, expertise and support necessary to stand-up mission-critical workloads built on the Docker platform. With both standard and premium offerings, customers may select the level that meets their requirements, including 24 x 7 x 365 support for Priority 1 issues. Together, Docker Engine 1.0 and the Enterprise Support program promote the production-readiness of Docker, as its use by customers expands beyond development and test to mission-critical workloads.

Helping drive the commercial adoption of Docker will be an initial set of 10 System Integrator Partners: Arcus, Dev9, Flux7, InfoSiftr, MomentumSI, OpDemand, Relevance Labs, Shadow-Soft, Vizuri and Wiredcraft.

“We have started using Docker as the foundation for our build and release pipelines, because it offers huge benefits around standardization and repeatable processes, especially for a company like Groupon with such a diverse set of technologies in play," said Brian McCallister, CTO of Platform at Groupon. "The reliability of the platform is critical, and Docker provides the best, most easily managed tool for packaging and deploying services."

Features of Docker Engine 1.0 include:

  • Quality: Docker is hardened and tested for enterprise production deployments;
  • Compatibility: Docker Engine now runs on all major Linux distributions, including Red Hat, Debian, Ubuntu, Fedora, Gentoo, Suse and Arch;
  • Interfaces: Docker now comes with plug-in interfaces for execution and file system drivers;
  • Extensibility: With boot2docker, support for non-Linux operating systems Mac OS X and Windows;
  • Complete documentation: Quality documentation, updated to reflect the latest capabilities and interfaces;
  • Complete training materials (previewed today at DockerCon as the Docker University Track);
  • Availability of commercial support, including Long Term Support and Proof of Concept Support packages; and
  • Integration with Docker Hub, the other half of the Docker Platform.

Since its inception 15 months ago, the open source Docker project has seen unprecedented community growth and adoption:

  • 2.75+ million downloads;
  • 12,000+ stars on GitHub;
  • 450+ contributors – 95 percent of whom do not work for Docker, Inc.;
  • 8,500+ commits;
  • 14,000+ “Dockerized” applications published on Docker Hub;
  • 90+ community-established user groups in more than 30 countries;
  • 6,500+ Docker related projects found on GitHub; and
  • Integration in a huge number of the key deployment, DevOps, and cloud platforms.

“The unprecedented growth in the adoption of Docker since its release in March 2013 is a testament to its engaged community as well as the platform’s ability to easily package any application and deploy it to literally any infrastructure,” said Stu Miniman, principal research contributor at Wikibon. “Users are increasingly looking at applications built for distributed architectures and these deployments can now be liberated across major operating systems, hypervisors and cloud environments by leveraging Docker. Finally, management of the app can be independent of a diverse and changing infrastructure.”
