Docker, the organization behind the open platform for distributed applications, has announced an update to Docker Hub – a cloud service for automating the workflows of development teams, that further accelerates application delivery and increases team productivity.
As a result of this update, which includes a new application architecture and a completely new front-end technology stack, Docker Hub users would be seeing 2.5 times faster downloads and 1.9 times faster UI response times.
Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes. With Docker, it would be easier to move workloads between data centers and the cloud while achieving greater efficiency in the use of computing resources.
In the last 12 months Docker Hub has experienced 390 percent growth in users, 480 percent growth in applications and a rapid increase in the number of ecosystem partners. Plugin support from Docker Hub’s broad set of ecosystem partners allows development teams to use their existing tools in their automated workflows assembled with Docker Hub.
Since Docker Hub takes advantage of a development team’s existing tools, automating workflows for building and shipping “Dockerized” applications would be quick and easy. For example, Docker Hub provides out-of-the-box integration with cloud-based source code management services Bitbucket, GitHub and GitLabs and continuous integration tools CircleCI, Jenkins (CI/CD), Shippable and Travis CI.
“Docker is a critical driver in the DevOps landscape today, and a lot of people rely on Docker Hub for their day-to-day operations, including Jenkins users that use plugins to interact with Docker Hub,” said Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins founder and CTO at CloudBees. “It is great to see the investments Docker is making in Docker Hub to keep it strong.”
