Docker Datacenter Delivers On-Premise Containers-as-a-Service

Docker introduced a software platform that enables enterprises to deploy an on-premises Containers-as-a Service (CaaS).

Docker Datacenter (DDC) manages the application lifecycle of Dockerized applications. It is comprised of Docker Universal Control Plane, Docker Trusted Registry and embedded support for Docker Engine.

The integrations among them are tested and validated configurations with enterprise-class support. Docker said it guarantees the interoperability and full support of the Docker API across the stack for a seamless transition in taking applications in development to production.

“Docker Datacenter leverages our years of innovation in the Docker open source projects and ecosystem, and the feedback and experience of early adopters running Docker in production,” said Solomon Hykes, Founder and CTO of Docker. “Through Docker Datacenter, we ship an integrated, commercially-supported production environment for container workloads, bringing developers the agility they’ve come to expect from Docker-based applications, with a Docker-native application lifecycle where what they build is what runs in production. This provides IT Pros with the level of control and security they need to manage an enterprise-class Container-as-a-Service platform, portable across any infrastructure, both on premises and in the cloud.”
