Univention & TecArt publish app bundle with Docker integration

Univention App Center mit TecArt App

In our App Center the new TecArt app, the first application based on the state-of-the-art “Docker” container technology for operation in UCS is now available. The app is stored in an isolated container, making it possible to run different software applications in the same server environment without conflicts.
I am glad, that TecArt is the first developer using our new Docker integration in the App Center. Container technology Docker LogoThe encapsulation via Docker allows TecArt to satisfy the specific requirements on essential software libraries and their versions via the App Center without any complex maneuvers or additional efforts.  

Univention and TecArt publish app bundle with Docker integration

The app from the software developer TecArt is the first third-party supplier with Docker integration to be included in the App Center of the server management solution Univention Corporate Server (UCS). The innovative Docker container technology makes it possible to operate different software systems separately from each other in the same environment. These encapsulated apps offer a wide range of advantages in their use in terms of flexibility and security. The isolation creates an optimal and independent system configuration, which simplifies the integration of the TecArt Business software for UCS. The new app manages all the business information and the work and communication processes in companies in a structured, flexible, and centralized manner.

App Rating in the Univention App Center

Example App Rating in App Center
Everybody who surfs through the internet knows some sort of rating for products, software, photos, postings, etc. Ratings are present at your favorite online book store, your movie or music streaming provider and on the two biggest and well-known marketplaces for mobile devices. All those rating systems have in common that users can leave comments and give a rating between zero to five. Most people, including me, are influenced by ratings and use them in their buying decision process, sometimes even unconsciously. Now, we have also implemented a rating system in our App Center.
