Project Harbor is initiated by VMware China R&D as a Cloud Application Accelerator (CAA) project. CAA provides a set of tools to improve the productivity of cloud developers in China and other countries. CAA includes tools like registry server, mirror server, decentralized image distributor, etc.
Project Harbor is an enterprise-class registry server. It extends the open source Docker Registry server by adding more functionalities usually required by an enterprise. Harbor is designed to be deployed in a private environment of an organization. A private registry is important for organizations who care much about security. In addition, a private registry improves productivity by eliminating the need to download images from the public network. This is very helpful to container users who do not have a good network to the Internet.
- Role Based Access Control: Users and docker repositories are organized via "projects", a user can have different permission for images under a namespace.
- Graphical user portal: User can easily browse, search docker repositories, manage projects/namespaces.
- AD/LDAP support: Harbor integrates with existing AD/LDAP of the enterprise for user authentication and management.
- Auditing: All the operations to the repositories are tracked and can be used for auditing purpose.
- Internationalization: Localized for English and Chinese languages. More languages can be added.
- RESTful API: RESTful APIs are provided for most administrative operations of Harbor. The integration with other management softwares becomes easy.
Harbor is self-contained and can be easily deployed via docker-compose. The below are quick-start steps. Refer to the Installation and Configuration Guide for detail information.
Harbor only works with docker 1.10+ and docker-compose 1.6.0+ .
The host must be connected to the Internet.
Get the source code:
$ git clone https://github.com/vmware/harbor
- Edit the file Deploy/harbor.cfg, make necessary configuration changes such as hostname, admin password and mail server. Refer to Installation and Configuration Guide for more info.
Install Harbor by the following commands. It may take a while for the docker-compose process to finish.
$ cd Deploy $ ./prepare Generated configuration file: ./config/ui/env Generated configuration file: ./config/ui/app.conf Generated configuration file: ./config/registry/config.yml Generated configuration file: ./config/db/env $ docker-compose up
If everything works fine, you can open a browser to visit the admin portal at http://reg.yourdomain.com . The default administrator username and password are admin/Harbor12345 .
Log in to the admin portal and create a new project, e.g. myproject. You can then use docker commands to login and push images. The default port of Harbor registry server is 80:
$ docker login reg.yourdomain.com $ docker push reg.yourdomain.com/myproject/myrepo
To simplify the installation process, a pre-built installation package of Harbor is provided so that you don't need to clone the source code. By using this package, you can even install Harbor onto a host that is not connected to the Internet. For details on how to download and use this installation package, please refer to Installation and Configuration Guide .
For information on how to use Harbor, please see User Guide .
