Are the Docker-images for Caché/Ensemble already available ?

Checking to see if this is still true. Are there "official" Docker containers for Caché/Ensemble or even HealthShare built on Ensemble?

Also interested to know if the "durable %SYS" solution is available for integration with custom containers? 

@James Fitzpatrick. Caché and Ensemble containers are not and will not be available. However, our new InterSystems IRIS product is fully containerized. Please give it a try. You have options now to: 

  • pull the community edition that you can find at the Docker Hub store or
  • play in the cloud Marketplaces with it (AWS, Azure and Google)
  • Download the tar.gz container from the WRC page

Durable %SYS is available for your containers; however we are maintaining the containers we create with security checks and improvements all the time. The advice is to derive your from our as in general it should make things easier: FROM intersystems/iris:

You can still customize the container the way you want it...
