SAN FRANSICO, CA: Docker, the organization behind the open platform for distributed applications, announces general availability of its commercial solutions to assure customer success in business-critical Dockerized distributed applications.

Docker Commercial solutions integrate certified Docker engines, support services and management tools to assure customer success. Docker Trusted Registry (DTR) is an on-premise registry for Docker container images and runs on top of Docker Hub Registry. It provides on-premise option for storing and sharing Docker images. The registry server provides integration of existing authentication systems with Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) and active directory. It also offers role-based access control (RBAC) and audit logs for authorization and compliance.

Docker’s ‘Container-as-a-Service’ Solution
Docker enables organizations to create a secure DevOps framework for application development teams as they develop applications into distributed applications running in the cloud. Docker can be used to create unified developer experience and provide a uniform set of tooling and shared microservices content.

To improve analyst productivity and innovation, the company embarked on a reinvention of the data technology stack by deploying a “big data” hub consisting of a centralized Hadoop Data Lake and a large suite of open source tools and software packages. Docker’s ‘Analytics Garage’ for enterprise allows the analytics app to be portable to the data enabling the financial institution and any other organization working with “big data” to improve the feedback loop on their analytics models.

IBM fully integrates the on-premises DTR software with its IBM Urbancode and IBM Pure Application Systems enabling containers for enterprise production workloads in hybrid cloud deployment.

Microsoft demonstrates multi-platform distributed container application across Windows Server and Linux, offering application developers flexibility across Linux and Windows Server. Microsoft also announces Visual Studio Online support for Docker and a new Azure Marketplace experience.

Docker Commercial Solutions are available directly from Docker as well as Amazon Web Services, IBM and Microsoft.
