Docker Datacenter

Docker Datacenter (DDC) is a container management and deployment services project from Docker developed to help enterprises get up to speed with their own Docker-ready platforms. Docker describes its Docker Datacenter tool as “an integrated, end-to-end platform for agile application development and management at any scale.”

In real-world terms, Docker Datacenter serves as “a sort of container-as-a-service (CaaS) setup within a company, where IT departments can build and store Docker images, code jockeys can build and test applications in containers on their laptops or desktop machines, and administrators can zip them over to servers in the corporate data center or on virtual machines in the cloud to put them into production,” according to ServerWatch.

Docker Datacenter Combines Proprietary Tools and Open Source Container Projects

As is the case with CoreOS’s Tectonic container management platform, Docker Datacenter comprises both proprietary software and various open source projects. The proprietary components in Docker Datacenter include Docker Universal Control Plane (UCP) and Docker Trusted Registry (DTR), which support Docker Engine as well as embedded open source Docker projects such as Swarm, Content Trust and Networking.

Docker first released Docker Datacenter into General Availability in February 2016, and it released a new version of Docker Datacenter in May of the same year. Among other capabilities and new features, the May 2016 DDC release also packaged updated versions of Universal Control Plane 1.1 (UCP), Docker Trusted Registry 2.0 (DTR), Docker Engine 1.11, Swarm 1.2 and Compose 1.7.
