Great news for everyone that wants to run Docker on vSphere. VMware released the Open Source version of vSphere Integrated Containers 0.9 which is now available via bintray here.
Please note: this is an interim pre-release and does not include support from VMware global support services (GSS). Support is OSS community level only.
Changes from the 0.8 version are documented here:
- vSphere HTML 5 Client plugin. See https://blogs.vmware.com/vsphere/2016/12/new-vcenter-management-clients-vsphere-6-5.html for details on the HTML 5 Client
- Upgrade from v0.8.0 using vic-machine upgrade. Includes rollback on failure.
- Docker Client 1.13 support and Docker API version 1.25 support.
- Initial Docker container event support. See https://docs.docker.com/engine/reference/commandline/events/
You can now go to https://vmware.github.io/vic-product/index.html#getting-started and see the documentation for the lastest official product version (in this case VIC Engine 0.8 as part of vSphere Integrated Containers 1.0) and the current OSS release (in this case VIC Engine 0.9).
Supported Docker Commands for 0.9 are listed in the documentation at https://vmware.github.io/vic-product/assets/files/html/latest/vic_app_dev/container_operations.html.
