Oracle is collaborating with Docker to release its flagship databases, middleware, and developer tools into the Docker Store marketplace via the Docker Certification Program. This will enable developers to 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.
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.
With this new partnership, developers can pull images of Oracle products in Docker and 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.
According to the vendors, as cloud computing continues to transform every business and industry, developers at global enterprises and emerging startups are increasingly leveraging container technologies to accelerate how they build modern web, mobile, and IoT applications. And, 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.
Enterprises have relied on Oracle’s technology to support their businesses for decades and their databases and middleware tools are used by millions of developers around the world, said Marianna Tessel, executive vice president, Strategic Development, at Docker. With this new partnership, developers that want to use containers for their businesses can now easily access “the world’s most popular databases and developer tools” and leverage the performance and robustness of Oracle in their applications, she added.
