  • How Salesforce Secures Docker Containers
    Running Docker containers securely as part of a DevOps pipeline is a process that has many steps and requires diligence. That's the message coming from Cem Gurkok, lead information security engineer at Salesforce, in a session at the DockerCon 16 conference here. While containers do represent a somewhat different paradigm for developers, security professionals might have a different view.
  • DockerCon Showcases New Docker Release, Containers-as-a-Service Model
    Docker is one of the most hyped technologies in IT today, as containers have gone mainstream. At the DockerCon 16 event, which was held June 19-21 at the Washington State Convention Center in Seattle, 4,000 people gathered to learn and talk about Docker. Among the news coming out of the event was the release of Docker 1.12, which includes an integrated container orchestration capability referred to as Swarm mode. Docker CEO Ben Golub, meanwhile, said IaaS and PaaS either deliver too little or too much of what an organization needs, so he sees the emerging containers-as-a-service (CaaS) space growing, which is where Docker is aiming to play with its Docker Datacenter technology. Golub also announced a public beta of the Docker Store, which is a curated set of containerized applications that users can obtain, Also debuting was the public beta release of the Docker native application for Windows and Mac, opening up those products from the private beta that was first announced in March. Other public betas announced at DockerCon were Docker for Azure and Docker for AWS public clouds. The general idea with the new public beta releases is to provide more seamless, integrated experiences for users of specific platforms when using Docker. In a keynote at the conference, Docker founder Solomon Hykes claimed most people don't care about containers; they actually just really care about applications. In this slide show, eWEEK takes a look at some of the highlights of the DockerCon 16 conference.
  • Docker Datacenter Launched
  • Why Docker is Like Chicken Nuggets and Waffle Cones
    There is a lot of hype and some confusion in the world of IT today about precisely what Docker is and how it enables the emerging world of micro-services. At the Dockercon 16 conference this week in Seattle, there were many talks explaining Docker capabilities, but it was perhaps the Day 2 keynotes that explained it best with some exemplary metaphors. According to Keith Fulton, CTO at ADP, Docker is a lot like chicken nuggets and waffle cones (though not necessarily eaten together at the same time). ADP, one of the world's largest payroll processing firms, has over 630,000 clients. Fulton noted that ADP does more than just payroll today, and considered itself to be a Human Capital Management (HCM) firm, with services including recruiting and 401K planning.
