Docker really has grown in leaps and bounds since its inception in 2013. Almost every major component of Docker has been updated recently, so this week on 24 x 7 IT Connection I take a look at the changes which came with this new release.
Docker has continued to gain more and more momentum, and recently announced a slew of new releases. One of the areas Docker gets stuck in port on has often been enterprise level features. These new updates further enhance features that have the potential to help greatly with enterprise deployments.
Docker Swarm 1.0
Docker Swarm, or the ability to run Docker applications in a cluster has reached its 1.0 release. Docker swarm creates a logical construct of resources, eliminating the need for Docker administrators to worry about things like container placement on a host. In testing, Docker has scaled up to 1,000 nodes and 3,000 containers in AWS without issue, and will be providing more technical information about their scaling capabilities.
