Docker simplifies the distribution and deployment of applications by using lightweight and portable containers.

Docker – the premier container runtime

Docker enables you to build, distribute, and run applications inside lightweight and portable containers. Introduced in 2013, it quickly became the de-facto standard in containerization, and is nowadays used by all major web and cloud vendors to deploy and run server and client applications. For us, Docker provides the perfect infrastructure for developing, testing, and running applications, as it can be managed entirely by code, in a repeatable and predictable manner.

Isolated

Docker isolates applications and their resources from each other. This makes it easy to run multiple applications independently on a single machine, and to redeploy or update them as needed.

Declarative

To put an application into a container, all you need to do is to create a recipe that describes the required steps in a declarative way. This not only makes builds repeatable and predictable, it also can be versioned easily.

Ecosystem

One of the core concepts of Docker is to have a registry you publish your containers to. From there you can also pull containers made by others. This way Docker empowers you to build complex scenarios.

Consulting

How to design the architecture of applications that shall run in a containerized environment? How to use Docker to set up an infrastructure for testing applications in a predictable way? How to run containerized applications in production? These and similar questions arise frequently in every Docker project. If you face these questions, too, we are there to help by sharing our experience and giving advise. Let's get in touch!

Designing architectures

A containerized architecture needs to support elastic scaling, failover, and many other things. We help to design distributed architectures for web and cloud applications, and to apply container-ready infrastructure.

Ensuring quality

Docker empowers you to set up test infrastructure using code. We help our customers to define their needs, configure Docker and the required infrastructure recipes, to get them quickly up and running.

Applying operations

Building applications with Docker is only half the story. Additionally, you will need to deploy them to a solid production-grade environment. We help our customers to set this up as part of their CI / CD workflow.

Development

Regardless of the conceptual effort you have already put into a project, sometimes you just don't have the people with the required experience to move things forward. We at the native web do not only have many years of experience with Docker, we also have extensive knowledge about the development and architecture of web and cloud applications in general. Whatever you are looking for, we will be the right development partner for you. Let's get in touch!

12 factor apps

We develop applications for web and cloud that follow the guidelines of twelve-factor apps. This enables support for elastic scalability, HA, failover, and anything else needed by containerized applications.

Testing

We develop flexible container-based test environments that can be set up using code. This empowers you to get a repeatable and predictable test infrastructure for your applications whenever you need it.

Deployment

We develop deployment solutions based on Docker that incorporate multi-stage builds. We use containers to gain parity between dev and prod environments, which closes the gap between tests and reality.

Your journey to Docker

We believe that having the chance to learn and to evolve every day is a valuable privilege that we are very thankful for. Having a deep desire for knowledge, we take hard problems as welcome challenges, not vice versa. Hence, we would like to empower you by sharing the following resources on Docker.

Let's go

To get started with Docker, first visit the official Docker website. Learn about images and containers, and how to control their lifecycle. Get to know the Docker Hub, and start to explore the Docker ecosystem.

En route

Once you are somewhat familiar with Docker, learn about Docker Compose to set up complex scenarios. Build your first Docker images, and learn how to optimize and secure them. Read about multi-stage builds.

No limits

Get yourself familiar with the idea of the twelve-factor apps. Learn how to distribute Docker and how to set up a cluster using Kubernetes. Finally, run your own registry, and learn about container-native environments.
