VMware today announced at DockerCon EU that Photon Controller is now available as an open source project.

The software, the control plane for the Photon Platform, makes it easy to deliver Docker Swarm, Cloud Foundry, Kubernetes, Mesos, etc., on-demand to application development teams in your organization. You can check out the code here! If you’d rather just download the binaries to run a basic environment on your laptop/ desktop, you can follow the instructions in our Getting Started Guide.

If you are in Barcelona for DockerCon EU this week, please attend our talk today at 13:10-13:25 CEST (Monday, November 16th) in the Hallway Community Theater. Likewise you can visit our booth (#32) to learn what Photon Controller offers, see a demo, and get the details on how you can easily get started with Photon Controller and Docker Swarm on your own!  

For a technical deep dive on Photon Controller, be sure to read Bharath Siravara’s blog post here.

By the way, our team would love to get your feedback and answer any questions in our Google Group!
