Docker Platform and Moby Project add Kubernetes
Today we’re announcing that the Docker platform is integrating support for Kubernetes so that Docker customers and developers have the option to use both Kubernetes and Swarm to orchestrate container workloads. Register for beta access and check out the detailed blog posts to learn how we’re bringing Kubernetes to:
Docker is a platform that sits between apps and infrastructure. By building apps on Docker, developers and IT operations get freedom and flexibility. That’s because Docker runs everywhere that enterprises deploy apps: on-prem (including on IBM mainframes, enterprise Linux and Windows) and in the cloud. Once an application is containerized, it’s easy to re-build, re-deploy and move around, or even run in hybrid setups that straddle on-prem and cloud infrastructure.
The Docker platform is composed of many components, assembled in four layers:
- The containerd industry-standard container runtime implementing the OCI standards
- Swarm orchestration that transforms a group of nodes into a distributed system
- Docker Community Edition providing developers a simple workflow to build and ship container applications, with features like application composition, image build and management
- Docker Enterprise Edition, to manage an end to end secure software supply chain and run containers in production
These four layers are assembled from upstream components that are part of the open source Moby Project.
