Build, ship & run with new Docker updates

New platform capabilities are aimed at improving collaboration and improving efficiencies.


Docker has announced the release of new platform capabilities which are aimed at enabling organisations to build, ship and run multi-container distributed applications across the application lifecycle.

The platform will allow teams to collaborate on development, test and management of an application which should improve productivity and accelerate deployment.

The new capabilities will be released alongside updates for Docker Engine 1.6, Registry 2.0 and orchestration tools which includes Compose, Machine and Swarm.

The unified release will put in place incremental integrated platform capabilities every two months to help provide continual improvement to the application development lifecycles.

Solomon Hykes, founder, chief architect and CTO of Docker, said: "Our community, which includes millions of developers and sysadmins, is depending on the Docker platform to support all stages of the application development lifecycle."

"These platform enhancements create new efficiencies and facilitate greater collaboration and a tighter integration between dev and ops. By synchronizing our releases, we are simplifying the evaluation and deployment process and enabling the community to immediately benefit from the integrated value that we’re building for them."

Included in this release, Docker has implemented a new Docker image distribution framework. This will address the scale and performance requirements for downloading and uploading container images.
