User experience design has a significant impact on how smooth your development process is. You shouldn’t have to struggle to work with your registry and orchestration systems; they should complement each other in a way that improves a user’s experience for both. As Kubernetes has exploded in popularity and more people use orchestration, there has been a shift in how users interact with their registries. The Quay team at CoreOS continues to make improvements to the quality of life of those implementing modern best practices for containerized deployments.

When we started Quay, we wanted to build an image registry that not only allowed you to manage your container images, but do so securely and reliably. Over the past few months we have noticed an accelerated interest in Quay and containers in general. One of the main forces driving this growth is the adoption of container orchestration and in particular, Kubernetes. And with the introduction of a new platform came a new set of challenges around deploying ever increasingly complex applications.

CoreOS Tectonic enables everyone to operate their server systems like Google does; we call this GIFEE (Google’s Infrastructure For Everyone). Built on Kubernetes, the production-grade container orchestration system, Tectonic enables you to manage complex containerized application infrastructure from application source code to live load balancer.

Today we celebrate two illustrious years of Quay at CoreOS. Quay, the secure container registry, enables developers and DevOps to build, distribute and deploy their Docker and rkt containers.

A look back at the container registry of choice

We launched Quay soon after the emergence of the Docker ecosystem.

Today at CoreOS Fest 2016, Brandon Philips, CTO of CoreOS, highlighted news that we are bringing together BitTorrent and Quay for improved efficiency. This is a preview feature and tool that enables support for pulling appc and Docker container images using BitTorrent, with the new quayctl tool. Quayctl integrates with both the rkt and Docker container engines and we want you to try it out.

Today at CoreOS Fest 2016 in Berlin, we recognize the hard work of the community that helped get us where we are, and dive into the latest news about some of our most beloved projects and products, including etcd, rkt, Clair, and more.

We are happy to announce that Quay Security Scanner is now available in the latest release (v1.16.0) of Quay Enterprise, the on-premises version of the Quay container registry by CoreOS. This release marks the Quay Security Scanner feature as enterprise ready. When this feature is enabled in Quay Enterprise, all container images in the registry are indexed and cross-referenced against public vulnerability databases.

You may have heard that the open source project Clair by CoreOS recently released version 1.0. If you’ve been following along, you may also know that Quay’s Security Scanner, a container registry feature that analyzes container images for known vulnerabilities, is based on Clair. Quay Security Scanner now has an entirely new interface atop the Clair 1.0 APIs and PostgreSQL backend.

Just one month after our Docker Registry v1/v2 support announcement for Quay Hosted, CoreOS is delighted to announce Quay Enterprise v1.14.0. This new release introduces Docker Registry v2 support and makes Quay Enterprise fully backward and forward compatible with both protocols, making Quay the easiest place to keep your containers. Push and pull your images securely with any version of Docker Engine (≥0.10) and enjoy the performance boost that registry v2 delivers.

Since the release of Quay's support for the Docker Registry V2 API, we've received reports of unpredictable client behavior from customers running Docker Engine versions 1.5.0 to 1.8.3. Docker Engines older than 1.5.0 and newer than 1.8.3 are unaffected.

The cause is a bug in the Docker Engine, which is triggered when concurrent pulls are made against Docker registries supporting the Docker Registry V2 APIs.
