"Great marketplace for docker already implemented containers"

What do you like best?

First contact I had with this tool was when I needed to pull a legacy PostgreSQL application. It was super easy to find the Official PGSQL repository and ready its Dockerfile contents. There I could find the Github project where that file points to, allowing me to do more than pull, but update by contributing with code, improving Dockerfile qualify, fixing some found bug or even to bump its version to the latest one.

What do you dislike?

The main problem with Docker hub in my use is lack of detailed listing projects. The listing page, just right after you searched some term, is very bloated with tons of community projects and it's not ordered by contribution or last updated version. This become a really mess when I was looking for Elasticsearch image to pull, which made me search on google before to find the right link to it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take this if you need a reliable way to distribute your Dockerfile throughout your peers and colleagues or if you want a centralized place to pull verified and reliable Dockerfile for any project or purpose. Also, consider this to contribute on opensource projects by improving its Dockerfile to others on the community.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Integration on teams. I can push Company specific dockerfile and distribute it along my remote teams everywhere hassle free. For me its a superb feature that can save a lot of configuration time even if you have or work in a small team.

"Amazing tool for sharing containers publicly across developers"

What do you like best?

Docker hub is the fastest way to share your custom containers with the rest of the world.

Docker containers are famous for being big and not so easy to distribute. Docker hub fill perfectly this gap, providing a simple way to share your containers with the rest of the world

What do you dislike?

I think that the UI could be improved a bit. Looks a bit old from my point of view.

Furthermore, you don't have so many tools to customize your container page. I think the Markdown support is missing some features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Please have some knowledge of Docker before using Dockerhub (that's obvious). Furthermore, if you plan to host your dockerfiles on Github, you can use the automated build feature.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Semplicity and free hosting of your custom containers

What Container Registry solution do you use?

"Docker - A developer-friendly architecture"

What do you like best?

Docker offers immense potential to radically simplify and speed up how software gets built.

What do you dislike?

Container support is being built into Windows tools at the very lowest level, with Windows containers now a deployment target for Visual Studio 2017. You can build and deliver applications as a container, ready for test. Making containers a simple mouse click away is an important step

Recommendations to others considering the product

Decoupling applications from the underlying hardware is the fundamental concept behind virtualization. Containers go a step further and decouple applications from the underlying OS. This enables cloudlike flexibility, including portability and efficient scaling. Containers bring another level of efficiency, portability, and deployment flexibility to developers beyond virtualization.

The popularity of containers underscores the fact that this is the developer-driven era. If cloud was about infrastructure innovation and mobile about usability innovation, the container is the much-needed force multiplier for developers.

"Your first Docker images repository"

What do you like best?

it is a free tool to make all your tests with docker registry.

What do you dislike?

Basically everybody can share images and it's not always immediate to find what you search for. In any case this is a small drawback and I would consider it only if I should say something bad of this service.

Recommendations to others considering the product

read carefully the recommendations and the instructions of the pages of the images and check the details in the connnected Github pages.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mostly used Docker Hub as a repository to get the needed images, the uses I've done were saving my images and create a repository for customers projects but mostly finding the right images to use as base for my docker projects, read the opinions of the users who already used this images. Use the rating of the image, the number of pulls, the comments and the inline guides of each images helps me much to choose which image is more suitable for your project. The search engine works fine and you can easily find all the images that you need. The tagging feature is useful to tag the version of the image. You can publish and share your images with your public profile that you can customize with your photo as in every web 2.0 application nowadays. Docker Hub, in few words, has all the features that you need to publish, save and share your images and on the other side to choose all the needed layers for your infrastructures.

"The default (and best) place to manage docker images, public & private"

What do you like best?

Simple but comprehensive UI.

Integrates perfectly with the CLI tool offered.

What do you dislike?

Was somewhat slow in bringing on desired functionality, can be difficult to find what one is looking for.

No easy way to click through to the Dockerfile definition unless the image author provides one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As a standalone docker image repository, in my opinion Docker hub stands apart as the best.

One can use it with services that allow deployment of docker images - while still allowing one to avoid vendor lock in with say, the AWS container offering.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Storing and managing private and public docker images. Very simple to interact with via the UI and CLI

"Easy to use"

What do you like best?

First time when I tried docker I was afraid as I think I need to download things but after I discoverd DockerHub now in only 1 minute I have all I need. In my opinion is a grate search tool for any Docker projec. You also can submit your own Docker projects in order to others find it.

What do you dislike?

Should have also a categorized catalog, but nothing essential. Should have more icons in order to reduce words.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Looking for docker projects, downloading and easy use.

"Experience using Docker Hub and comparing it with other hosted container registries"

What do you like best?

It is very easy to get started with Docker Hub as it is very well documented. Many docker images are available publicly and they are updated soon compared to others. It is also very well integrated with other tools like Github to automatically build docker images. People familiar with Github can easily get started with it as we can add collaborators for repositories. Automated builds and build pipelines can be easily setup.

What do you dislike?

Performance. There are no SLAs for performance for example when transferring the build images. A single image repository cannot be converted to build repositories I think because of no auditing present. I don't think this is a major issue: Only github and bitbucket are supported for hosted repositories.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely recommend this product. Please check the pricing and performance conditions before going ahead.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Docker images are readily available for anyone in the company or team to use. Teams can collaborate on docker repositories. Same images doesn't have to be created multiple times. Deployment and build pipelines can be created and automated which saves a lot of time for the teams.

"Good place to find new docker images"

What do you like best?

It looks nice, provides simple instructions on how to pull the docker image and also easy links to a github repository.

What do you dislike?

It's not the easiest to find new docker containers. I usually end up using Google to find the best result.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To use Google to find the docker containers, the explore list is good for finding official repositories though.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

A way for discovering and finding docker containers for our continuous integration servers.

Setting up development environment becomes so easy with docker.

All you need to do is set up an image once.

Setting up development environments.

"Good basic features, but far from worth paying for"

What do you like best?

Easy default docker image hosting for public and private needs.

What do you dislike?

The automated image build tools are the main reason this would be worth paying for and they are quite poor. The lack features and development seems to be very slow. Some time back Docker bought up a company making something like this, so perhaps that's the plan, but it's been over a year and this isn't any better. There's real opportunity to do a great job here, but it'll probably come from a different company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Store public and private docker images.

It's a very convenient way to share your containers with colleges. As a bonus - 1 private repo for free.

What do you dislike?

Comments on popular containers usually flooded with lots of spam.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it as a main container registry for all of our infrastructure (Jenkins, Kibana, etc)
