Oracle Brings Oracle’s Flagship Databases and Developer Tools to the Docker Store
April 2017 by Marc Jacob
Oracle announced that it is collaborating with Docker to release its flagship databases, middleware and developer tools into the Docker Store marketplace via the Docker Certification Program. Together, Oracle and Docker enable developers to quickly build cloud-native applications using Docker Enterprise Edition as their container platform and Oracle’s databases and developer tools immediately available as Docker containers through the Docker Store.. The Docker Certification Program is a framework for partners to integrate and certify their technology to the Docker EE commercial platform.
Effective immediately, developers can now pull images of Oracle products in Docker and quickly start developing, testing and deploying modern enterprise applications. Solutions offered include Oracle Database, Oracle MySQL, Oracle Java 8 SE Runtime Environment, Oracle WebLogic Server, Oracle Coherence and Oracle Instant Client, which are now all available in the Docker Store as enterprise-ready containers.
As cloud computing continues to transform every business and industry, developers at global enterprises and emerging startups alike are increasingly leveraging container technologies to accelerate how they build modern Web, mobile and IoT applications. Because the need for new applications in the enterprise consistently outpaces development capabilities, modern developers need to be able to quickly develop, test and deploy their applications without worrying about their deployment environment. With the availability of Oracle in the Docker Store, developers are now free for the first time to deliver best in class secure, high-performance, and resilient applications in containers with confidence. Oracle is a long-time supporter of the Docker ecosystem with more than 100 images of Oracle products already available in the Docker Hub, including OpenJDK and Oracle Linux.
Developers can try these images immediately by downloading them on any public cloud or on-premises servers. With Oracle Cloud, developers can deploy these images on the cloud infrastructure of their choice: virtual, bare metal or managed containers. Developers can try the service and experience Oracle Cloud with $300.
Oracle Cloud is the industry’s broadest and most integrated public cloud, offering a complete range of services across SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. It supports new cloud environments, existing ones, and hybrid, and all workloads, developers, and data. The Oracle Cloud delivers nearly 1,000 SaaS applications and 50 enterprise-class PaaS and IaaS services to customers in more than 195 countries around the world and supports 55 billion transactions each day.
