So I work in a service based IT MNC, and we’re looking to incorporate docker containers in our backend applications.
The problem is installing Docker CE for this business use requires approval from our Group IT team. I wanted to know if there’s any risk of developing application for the client with Docker CE?
The IT team states that
- Docker Community Edition : This product is termed free but requires requestors to submit an Order form and also restricts usage only for Internal Business purpose but if you need to use it for Commercial deliverables either Capgemini or Customer has to procure license for this. https://www.docker.com/legal/docker-software-end-user-subscription-agreement
- All products bundled within the container need to be licensed or if they are opensource you need to ensure that these products do not have any License terms which will get breached due to your deliverables
