Docker En­ter­prise Edi­tion now pro­vides multi-ar­chi­tec­ture or­ches­tra­tion

OpenSource For You - - Fossbytes -

Docker has up­graded its En­ter­prise Edi­tion to ver­sion 17.06. The new up­date is de­signed to of­fer an ad­vanced ap­pli­ca­tion de­vel­op­ment and ap­pli­ca­tion mod­erni­sa­tion en­vi­ron­ment across both on-premises and cloud en­vi­ron­ments.

One of the ma­jor changes in the new Docker En­ter­prise Edi­tion is the sup­port for mul­ti­ar­chi­tec­ture or­ches­tra­tion. The so­lu­tion mod­ernises .NET, Java and main­frame ap­pli­ca­tions by pack­ag­ing them in a stan­dard for­mat that does not re­quire any changes in the code. Sim­i­larly, en­ter­prises can con­tainer­ise their tra­di­tional apps and mi­croser­vices and de­ploy them in the same clus­ter, ei­ther on-premises or in the cloud, ir­re­spec­tive of op­er­at­ing sys­tems. This means that you can run ap­pli­ca­tions de­signed for Win­dows, Linux and IBM Sys­tem Z plat­forms side by side in the same clus­ter, us­ing the latest mech­a­nism.

“Docker EE unites all of these ap­pli­ca­tions into a sin­gle plat­form, com­plete with cus­tomis­able and flex­i­ble ac­cess con­trol, sup­port for a broad range of ap­pli­ca­tions and in­fras­truc­ture and a highly au­to­mated soft­ware sup­ply chain,” Docker prod­uct man­ager, Vivek Saraswat, said in a blog post.

In ad­di­tion to mod­ernising ap­pli­ca­tions, the new en­ter­prise-cen­tric Docker ver­sion has se­cure multi-ten­ancy. It al­lows en­ter­prises to cus­tomise role-based ac­cess con­trol and de­fine phys­i­cal as well as log­i­cal bound­aries for dif­fer­ent teams shar­ing the same con­tainer en­vi­ron­ment. This en­ables an ad­vanced se­cu­rity layer and helps com­plex or­gan­i­sa­tional struc­tures adopt Docker con­tain­ers.

The new Docker En­ter­prise Edi­tion also comes with the abil­ity to as­sign grants for re­source col­lec­tions, which can be ser­vices, con­tain­ers, volumes and net­works. Sim­i­larly, there is an op­tion to even au­to­mate the con­trols and man­age­ment us­ing the APIs pro­vided.

Docker is of­fer­ing pol­icy-based au­to­ma­tion to en­ter­prises to help them cre­ate some pre­de­fined poli­cies to main­tain com­pli­ance and pre­vent hu­man er­ror. For in­stance, IT teams can au­to­mate im­age pro­mo­tion us­ing pre­de­fined poli­cies and move images from one repos­i­tory to an­other within the same registry. They can also make their ex­ist­ing repos­i­to­ries im­mutable to pre­vent im­age tags from be­ing mod­i­fied or deleted.
