Oracle Linux images are now available on the Docker Hub Registry, a repository for Docker-based components, including applications and operating systems.
Oracle Linux joins MySQL, which is already on Docker Hub and has been downloaded millions of times. Oracle also plans to provide a new Oracle-maintained MySQL image for the official repositories on Docker Hub to further enable developers to benefit from the latest MySQL innovations.
Applications using the Docker open platform for distributed applications can be rapidly developed and deployed. They are portable across clouds and on-premises to help businesses innovate faster. With Oracle Linux and MySQL available on the Docker Hub Registry, Oracle says that Docker users will be able to easily build their applications with the certainty that comes from deploying on enterprise-grade products as they leverage a more streamlined and container-based approach to distributed application deployment. Additionally, developers can use the Docker tools directly without having to separately download OS images and manually import them into their own repository, saving time and reducing complexity.
“Docker users can take full advantage of the open source nature of Oracle Linux and MySQL to build their products,” said Wim Coekaerts, senior vice president, Linux and Virtualization Engineering, Oracle. “With Oracle Linux and MySQL images available on the Docker Hub Registry, users will be able to quickly create and publish custom Docker containers that layer applications on top of Oracle Linux and MySQL, which is a great time-saver for both independent software vendors and IT departments.”
