SAN FRANCISCO. Docker and Arm are partnering on a cloud-native unified software development and delivery platform for datacenter, edge, and IoT devices. The software environment will accelerate the development of secure applications and services, and be made available through Docker’s commercial enterprise offerings.
The collaborative effort will provide:
- A seamless developer environment, starting with the integration of Arm capabilities into the Docker Desktop community
- End-to-end management of the full product lifecycle, from development to secure device management
- Unified development environments for heterogeneous compute
- Scaling cloud-native benefits to consolidate edge workloads
While the solution aims to decouple software applications from infrastructure dependencies, it will also enable Docker developers by providing a Docker Enterprise Engine for Amazon EC2 A1 instances, which run on AWS Graviton Processors powered by 64-bit Arm Neoverse cores. According to the companies, the described AWS instances achieve up to 45 percent cost savings when running scale-out containerized applications on Arm-based silicon.
For Arm ecosystem developers, frameworks that result from the collaboration will also allow embedded engineers to more easily leverage Docker-based solutions as extensions of the Arm Neoverse platform.
