1Surprise Announcement Changes Container Landscape at DockerCon EU
Docker Inc. shook up the entire container market at its DockerCon EU 17 conference with the announcement that Docker will embrace the rival open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. The DockerCon EU 17 event ran from Oct. 16-19 in Copenhagen, Denmark; it was the second DockerCon 17 event this year, following the Austin, Texas, event which took place in April. At DockerCon EU, another big piece of news was IBM’s announcement that it is joining Docker’s Modernize Traditional Applications (MTA) program, which helps organizations transform legacy applications into modern cloud-ready, container-delivered applications. In this slide show, eWEEK looks at some of the highlights of the DockerCon 17 EU conference.

8Docker Security Is About Software Safety
Diogo Monica, security lead at Docker, explained in a container security session that security is really the wrong word for what organizations want. Rather, he argued, safety is a better description. Monica explained to session attendees how IndyCar and F1 race cars are made safe for drivers and provided examples of how similar concepts for safety can work for data and containers.
