Swarm Orchestration in Docker Enterprise Edition

At DockerCon Europe, we announced that the next release of Docker Enterprise Edition (Docker EE) would include Kubernetes integration. We’re really excited about bringing Kubernetes to our customer base and continuing to increase our involvement within the community. But it’s equally important for us to note that Swarm orchestration is not going away. Swarm forms an integral cluster management component of the Docker EE platform; in addition, Swarm will operate side-by-side with Kubernetes in a Docker EE cluster, allowing customers to select, based on their needs, the most suitable orchestration tool at application deployment time.

Here are just a few reasons that Swarm is integral to the Docker EE solution:

  1. Support our existing customers and ecosystem integrations
  2. Provide customers the flexibility in choice of orchestrators
  3. Provide secure and highly available clustering architecture

Existing Customers and Ecosystem Integrations

Docker now has hundreds of Docker EE customers who have standardized on Swarm orchestration. In fact, at our Customer Summit during DockerCon, all of the customers stated that they intend to continue using Swarm even with the Kubernetes announcement. Having both Swarm and Kubernetes options available is definitely a plus for some of these customers if they want to add additional choice, but we remain committed to our customers who continue to build and extend their Swarm environments.

In addition, as a platform solution, it is critical that Docker EE works with other IT solutions in the wider ecosystem, such as solutions for monitoring and logging, or infrastructure for storage and networking. As a result of this, we have a “batteries included but swappable” strategy that encourages integration with 3rd party tools through our certification process. Many of these integrations have been certified for Swarm, and we are committed to engaging with technology partners creating these integrations and our customers who benefit from these joint solutions.

Docker Docker is an open-source project to easily create lightweight, portable, self-sufficient containers from any application. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop can run at scale, in production, on VMs, bare metal, OpenStack clusters, public clouds and more.
