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

Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 700 million times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including eBay, Baidu, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed an active ecosystem, resulting in more than 180,000 “Dockerized” applications, over 40 Docker-related startups and integration partnerships with AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google, IBM, Microsoft, OpenStack, Rackspace, Red Hat and VMware.
