On February 23rd, Docker announced the release of their new product — Docker Datacenter — to complement their existing open source containerization tools. The company described it as “an integrated, end-to-end platform for agile application development and management from the datacenter to the cloud.” This will allow enterprises to deploy a Container-as-a-Service system on premise or in a private cloud for developers to use to build, test, and deploy their applications.

The platform is not open source like other facets of Docker’s product portfolio, but provides the kind of integration many enterprises are looking for, rather than making sense of the open source ecosystem themselves, according to Scott Johnson, Senior VP of Product Management at Docker in a phone call with InfoWorld. Docker Datacenter is automatically integrated with the open source Docker Swarm and Engine solutions through the Universal Control Panel (UCP) and supports the Docker API for more user-created integrations. Within Docker Datacenter, users can configure storage, certificates, and users quickly and easily from the web UI. Docker Datacenter also supports high availability and transport layer security (TLS). The official site provides this very informative graphic on what’s included:
