This commercial agreement provides for a streamlined operations and support experience for joint customers. Stable, maintained releases of Docker will be published and updated by Docker, Inc., as snap packages on Ubuntu, enabling direct access to the Docker, Inc. build of Docker for all Ubuntu users. Canonical will provide Level 1 and Level 2 technical support for CS Docker Engine backed by Docker, Inc. providing Level 3 support. Canonical will ensure global availability of secure and Ubuntu images on Docker Hub.
Ubuntu is widely used as a devops platform in container-centric environments. “The combination of Ubuntu and Docker is popular for scale-out container operations, and this agreement ensures that our joint user base has the fastest and easiest path to production for CS Docker Engine devops,” said John Zannos, Vice President of Cloud Alliances and Business Development, Canonical.
CS Docker Engine is a software subscription to Docker’s flagship product backed by business day and business critical support. CS Docker Engine includes orchestration capabilities that enable an operator to define a declarative state for the distributed applications running across a cluster of nodes, based on a decentralized model that allows each Engine to be a uniform building block in a self-organizing, self-healing distributed system.
“Through our partnership, we provide users with more choice by bringing the agility, portability, and security benefits of the Docker CS engine to the larger Ubuntu community,” said Nick Stinemates, Vice President, Business Development & Technical Alliances at Docker. “Additionally, Ubuntu customers will be able to take advantage of official Docker support -- a service that is not available from most Linux distributions. Together, we have aligned to make it even easier for organizations to create new efficiencies across the entire software supply chain.”
Canonical is the company behind Ubuntu, the leading OS for container, cloud, scale-out and hyperscale computing. 65% of large-scale OpenStack deployments are on Ubuntu, using both KVM and the pure-container LXD hypervisor for the world’s fastest private clouds. Canonical provides enterprise support and services for commercial users of Ubuntu. Canonical leads the development of the Juju model-driven operations system, and MAAS (Metal-as-a-Service), which creates a physical server cloud and IPAM for amazing data centre operational efficiency. Canonical is a privately held company.
Docker, Inc. is the company behind the Docker open source platform, and is the chief sponsor of the Docker ecosystem. Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 6 billion times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including ADP, GE, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify.

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, explored HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
