This week we announced some significant news for developers: we have expanded our partnership with Docker by joining the Docker Certified Program to deliver secure, scalable and real-time containerized applications. Through the program, the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway Community Edition (KWGCE), which is the free version of our enterprise-grade WebSocket server for full-duplex bi-directional data delivery, and the Kaazing WebSocket Gateway Enterprise Edition (KWGEE) are now available on the new Docker Store. The Docker Certified Program is designed for third party apps, plugins and infrastructure, and the new Docker Store is a commercial marketplace for third party containers.
We’re increasingly seeing organizations move towards highly flexible, software-defined IT infrastructures, and as a result they’re looking to leverage microservices-based data center architectures – which the Docker platform can enable. By joining Docker’s Certified Program we’re committing to ensuring that KWGEE and KWGCE will always be fully operable with Docker’s new commercially supported (CS) engine, which will enable secure and real-time delivery of web-scale applications and microservices being deployed in containers in data center, cloud and hybrid environments.
Our entry into the Docker Certified Program also indicates that our technology has been tested and verified by Docker, confirming for customers that the container images have been evaluated for security and are supported and built according to best practices. And our partnership with Docker has already borne fruit for developers: since becoming a Docker partner last year, we’ve driven more than 100,000+ downloads of our technology through Docker.
As you might be able to tell, we’re very excited about our entry into the Docker Certified Program – and you can read all about the program this blog post post from Docker. We see it as further validation of our commitment to providing developers with highly secure, scalable and enterprise-grade tools – so they can offer their own customers the kinds of highly innovative and real-time applications and services they’ve come to know and love.
