About Docker and DataStax
Docker is defined as a platform to help developers build, share, and run modern applications. Docker allows a developer to run images that are composed of software they wish to experiment with and try out. A Docker image is a read-only immutable template that defines how a container will be instantiated. Thus, a container, a runtime instance of a Docker image, is created to run on a local computer.
DataStax supplies Docker images for DataStax Enterprise (DSE) that can be downloaded from the Docker Hub. These images can be used in both development (non-production) and production environments. DataStax maintains images for the following software:
DataStax Enterprise: The best distribution of Apache Cassandra™ with integrated Search, Analytics, and Graph, and Advanced Security capabilities.
DataStax Studio: An interactive developer’s tool for DataStax Enterprise designed to help you use the DSE database, Cassandra Query Language (CQL), DSE Graph, and Gremlin Query Language development.
DSE OpsCenter: The web-based visual management and monitoring solution for DSE
Images exist for all versions of DSE, DSE OpsCenter, and DataStax Studio.
