At DockerCon in June, we first announced experimental support for Docker Networking. As of the 1.9 release of Docker, we are excited to announce that Docker Networking is generally available to define how your Dockerized apps connect together.

Docker Networking is a feature of Docker Engine that allows you to create virtual networks and attach containers to them so you can create the network topology that is right for your application. The networked containers can even span multiple hosts, so you don’t have to worry about what host your container lands on. They can seamlessly communicate with each other wherever they are - thus enabling true distributed applications.

And Networking is pluggable, so you can use any third-party networking driver to power your networks without having to make any changes to your application.

Join this online meetup to learn more about Docker Networking in Docker 1.9.

WHEN: Thursday, November 12, 9:30am PDT

About Docker

Docker ( is an open platform for developers and sysadmins to build, ship, and run distributed applications. Consisting of Docker Engine, a portable, lightweight runtime and packaging tool, and Docker Hub, a cloud service for sharing applications and automating workflows, Docker enables apps to be quickly assembled from components and eliminates the friction between development, QA, and production environments.
