Our live Docker webinars are always hugely popular. Last month we hosted a session on Docker and Windows containers, covering everything from the basics to how you can use the Docker platform (Docker Enterprise Edition and Docker Desktop) to modernize existing .NET apps and move them to the cloud. The recording is available now – it clocks in at 60 minutes and has lots of demos showing you how to build and run Windows applications in containers with Docker for Windows. Learn More
Improved Docker Container Integration with Java 10
Many applications that run in a Java Virtual Machine (JVM), including data services such as Apache Spark and Kafka and traditional enterprise applications, are run in containers. Until recently, running the JVM in a container presented problems with memory and cpu sizing and usage that led to performance loss. This was because Java didn't recognize that it was running in a container. With the release of Java 10, the JVM now recognizes constraints set by container control groups (cgroups). Both memory and cpu constraints can be used manage Java applications directly in containers. Java 10 improvements are realized in both Docker for Mac or Windows and Docker Enterprise Edition environments. Learn More.
