While our minds have already shifted ahead to Dockercon Europe, there was one announcement in particular from Dockercon2018 that everyone should take notice. Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) will soon allow organizations to federate applications across not only other deployments of itself, but accompanying Kubernetes cloud-hosted solutions like AWS Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). This pivotal business decision for Docker Inc. demonstrates that they are listening to their customers and should allow them to continue to be the go-to container platform for enterprises across the globe.

Moby Project Explained

Moby Project Explained

BoxBoat’s travel to Austin for Dockercon 2017 turned out to be as eventful as Seattle 2016! Among many of the latest announcements from Docker and the community, the most compelling, exciting (and confusing?) had to have been the Moby Project. Since the Docker Project’s first introduction to the community some four years ago, an entire ecosystem of technologies have grown around containerization. Most of these technologies, including notables Compose, Infrakit, and Swarmkit, have been directly contributed by the Docker open source community and established within the Docker organization on GitHub.
