Docker unveils cross-cloud management, container templates
Docker announced today new features for Docker Enterprise Edition and Docker Desktop to port and manage apps on Kubernetes-based clouds, and to build containers via template-based workflows. Both features are scheduled to appear in Docker editions released in the second half of the year.
Federated application management, as the first announced feature is called, is intended to unify the different ways each cloud provider and operating system runs Docker by way of Kubernetes. Federation is intended to work interchangeably across multiple cloud providers, and between both Linux and Windows editions of Docker.
