This is the second in our series of Docker blog posts. The first post, by James our CTO, focused on why UShareSoft for Docker software governance and transparency. In this post, we'll tell you exactly how to build a Docker base image using our tools.
By a base image, we mean a machine image containing just the necessary bits required to launch your container image. You can do this in two ways: using our UForgeNow SaaS platform, or using hammr, an open source tool for creating machine images for different environments from a single configuration file.
