Docker and AWS immediately introduced a brand new collaboration that introduces a deep integration between Docker’s Compose and Desktop developer instruments and AWS’s Elastic Container Service (ECS) and ECS on AWS Fargate. Previously, the 2 firms word, the workflow to take Compose information and run them on ECS was typically difficult for builders. Now, the 2 firms simplified this course of to make switching between operating containers regionally and on ECS far simpler.
“With numerous containers being constructed utilizing Docker, we’re very excited to work with Docker to simplify the developer’s expertise of constructing and deploying containerized functions to AWS,” stated Deepak Singh, the VP for compute companies at AWS. “Now clients can simply deploy their containerized functions from their native Docker surroundings straight to Amazon ECS. This accelerated path to fashionable software improvement and deployment permits clients to focus extra effort on the distinctive worth of their functions, and fewer time on determining how one can deploy to the cloud.”
In a little bit of a shock transfer, Docker final yr offered off its enterprise enterprise to Mirantis to solely concentrate on cloud-native developer experiences.
“In November, we separated the enterprise enterprise, which was very a lot targeted on operations, CXOs and a direct gross sales mannequin, and we offered that enterprise to Mirantis,” Docker CEO Scott Johnston informed TechCrunch’s Ron Miller earlier this yr. “At that time, we determined to focus the remaining enterprise again on builders, which was actually Docker’s goal again in 2013 and 2014.”
Today’s transfer is an instance of this new focus, on condition that the workflow points this partnership addresses had been round for fairly some time already.
It’s value noting that Docker additionally lately engaged in a strategic partnership with Microsoft to combine the Docker developer expertise with Azure’s Container Instances.
