Docker Announces Docker Extensions and Docker Desktop for Linux at DockerCon 2022
PALO ALTO, Calif., May 10, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- At DockerCon 2022, Docker, Inc.®, a leading provider of cloud-native application development tools, content, and services for developers, announced new features and partnerships to increase developer productivity. Specifically, the company announced Docker Extensions which allow developers to discover and add complementary development tools to Docker Desktop. Docker announced that 14 launch partners have published Docker Extensions, including JFrog, Red Hat, Snyk and VMware. In addition, the company announced the generally available release of Docker Desktop for Linux, which brings the productivity benefits of Docker Desktop - before today available only to developers using Mac and Windows workstations - to developers using Linux workstations as well.
“The large, complex cloud-native tools landscape presents a challenge for developers, who need the right tool for the right job, right now,” said Docker CEO Scott Johnston. “Docker Extensions enables developers to quickly discover and start using the tools they need for their apps and not waste time searching, downloading, configuring, evaluating, and managing tools.”
Today's announcements are the most recent result of Docker's increased investment in product development for application developers. Using Docker, development teams release 13X more frequently, ramp productivity with new technologies in 65% less time, and compress the mean-time-to-remediation (MTTR) of security vulnerabilities by 62%. Docker not only underpins today’s initiatives focused on app modernization and microservices, but it also enables tomorrow’s with its support for serverless, WebAssembly, Web3, and more.
Other benefits of Docker Extensions include:
