Alibaba Cloud and Docker Partner to Drive Adoption of Containerized Applications in China
October 13, 2016

Alibaba Cloud and Docker announced a commercial agreement that advances the user experience for developers throughout China by providing a Docker image store and distribution for Docker Hub on Alibaba Cloud.

In addition, Alibaba Cloud will resell Commercially Supported (CS) Docker Engine and Docker Datacenter, enabling enterprises to manage their production workloads across the entire application lifecycle.

With Docker Hub on Alibaba Cloud, users have a turnkey solution for creating distributed applications leveraging the content from thousands of Dockerized services available in the Docker Hub hosted repository. Because Docker Hub will be hosted locally in China Mainland on Alibaba Cloud, users will experience faster downloads and UI response rates, enabling them to ship applications more frequently than before.

Backed by Docker, Inc., Alibaba Cloud will also provide enterprise support options for CS Docker Engine and Docker Datacenter. Through the partnership, enterprises across China will be able to innovate more rapidly, accelerating time to value when building, shipping and running distributed applications.

“As enterprises in China and throughout the world begin to modernize their application environments, there has been an increasing demand for an easy solution to deploy Docker on Alibaba Cloud,” said Sicheng Yu, VP of Alibaba Group and General Manager of Alibaba Cloud Global. “Our partnership with Docker will bring enterprises the full lifecycle management needed to scale existing implementations into production. We look forward to working with Docker to help organizations with their journey as they move their workloads to Alibaba Cloud.”

To help organizations manage that transition, Alibaba Cloud will resell Docker Datacenter, an integrated platform for developers and IT to collaborate, bringing improved security, policy and controls to the application lifecycle without sacrificing agility or application portability. According to Docker’s research, with Docker Datacenter, organizations have an enterprise-ready management solution that allows developers to ship 13X faster while giving operations teams the ability to seamlessly migrate these workloads, for the first time, to the cloud. Customers operating Docker Datacenter on premises also report significant improvement in operational efficiency, 10Xx or more improvements in density and dramatically improved application portability to any infrastructure.

"As we deepen our roots into the Asian market, our partnership with the leading cloud provider in the region will enable us to better serve the unique needs of the global enterprises in China,” said Nick Stinemates, VP, Business Development & Technical Alliances at Docker. “We are excited to bring Docker containers, the CS Docker Engine, and Docker Datacenter to the second largest economy in the world as this is a critical step to enable our vision of ‘write-once, run-anywhere’ apps that can be deployed on-premises or in the cloud. Through our partnership, we make it easier for organizations of all sizes to containerize legacy applications, accelerate their digital transformations and build new microservices using Docker and Alibaba Cloud."
