Extending Docker Enterprise Edition to Support Kubernetes
At DockerCon Europe, we announced that Docker will be delivering seamless integration of Kubernetes into the Docker platform. Bringing Kubernetes to Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) will simplify and advance the management of Kubernetes for enterprise IT and deliver the advanced capabilities of Docker EE to a broader set of applications.
Swarm and Kubernetes Side-by-Side
Docker EE is an enterprise-grade container platform that includes a private image registry, advanced security features and centralized management for the entire container lifecycle. By including Kubernetes for container orchestration, customers will have the ability to run both Swarm and Kubernetes in the same Docker EE cluster while still leveraging the same secure software supply chain for building and deploying applications.
Figure 1. Docker EE Architecture with Multiple Orchestrators
This is possible because Docker EE has a modular architecture that is designed to support multiple orchestrators. The Linux nodes are both Swarm and Kubernetes-ready and application teams can decide which orchestrator to use at app deployment time.
When creating a new Stack in Docker EE, you are given the choice of deploying it as Swarm Services or as Kubernetes Workloads:
