Docker is expanding its popular Docker Desktop application to integrate with a wider range of developer tools, as well as provide natural support for developers working on Linux workstations.

Announced today at DockerCon, Docker Extensions launches with 14 partner integrations: Ambassador, Anchore, AquaSec, EverX, JFrog,, Okteto, Portainer, Red Hat, Snyk, SUSE / Rancher, Tailscale, Uffizzi and VMware.

These start-up partners can be grouped into three main groups: simplifying the implementation of Kubernetes (VMware Tanzu, Okteto, Portainer, Red Hat, Rancher), secure software supply chain (Anchore, AqueSec, JFrog, Snyk) and supporting hybrid environments. for development (Ambassador, Tailscale, Layer5, Uffizzi).

The wider Docker community will also be able to manage a wider range of extensions in the future using the new Docker Extensions SDK.

“The large, complex landscape with cloud tools is a challenge for developers who need the right tool to work right now,” said Docker CEO Scott Johnston. “Docker extensions allow developers to quickly discover and start using the tools they need for their applications without wasting time searching, downloading, configuring, evaluating and managing tools.”

Docker Desktop will now be available on Linux workstations, with an identical experience to macOS and Windows applications, allowing enterprise developers to go through the tyranny of what Johnston calls “working on my machine” pointing a finger.
