Evaluate VMWare's Harbour as a docker registry
Closed, ResolvedPublic


Harbour is, by all definitions, a superior docker registry for our needs:

  • It has multitenancy builtin
  • Can (quite easily) integrate with LDAP
  • Is thought to work in multiple instances
  • Has native support for Swift including removal of old images and TLS if supported
  • Has support for cross-instance replication (multi-dc too)
  • Has support for read-only builtin (we could also separate the public and private instances this way)
  • Can use clair to scan images for vulnerabilities
  • Has an api that is richer than the original docker one, with client libraries in python

I think we should start testing it out ASAP, before migrating our registry becomes too complex.
