Docker 1.12: The Container Orchestration War Is Coming…
During DockerCon, the latest version of the Docker Engine, version 1.12, was announced!
This version natively integrates Swarm, the orchestration project of Docker containers, which has been in preparation for two years. And this now positions the Docker ecosystem at the same level as Kubernetes.
Until now, we had to graft Swarm to a Docker project. However, it did not necessarily work well with the use cases of a complex architecture. Whereas Kubernetes did. But now, with Docker 1.12, it is no longer necessary to consider other technologies.
Thanks to this upgrade, it will also be easier to transport your Docker cluster from a Cloud platform to another platform.
During DockerCon, Docker also presented an integration – which is in private beta – with Azure and AWS, which will allow you to quickly set up a Docker cluster on your Clouds.

Stay tuned for more fun cartoons!
