Sitecore 9 Experience Platform (XP) Images Released

February 21, 2019

The Sitecore 9 Experience Management (XM) images have been around for a while and they are pretty stable and fit for production use, currently used on at least two customer solutions.

Until now I haven't been involved in any projects that had the need for the full blown XP on Docker, but that is about to change. So in preparation for this I have released images for Sitecore 9.1 and 9.0.2 XP out on https://github.com/sitecoreops/sitecore-images.

Sitecore 9.1 XP is both for 1803 and ltsc2019 since it's the first Sitecore version that officially supports Windows Server 2019, see the Sitecore compatibility table. UPDATE: I was either dreaming or it was removed again, but now it seem that Windows Server 2019 is not supported yet. That said I have not seen any issues on the images and only the issue below on the host OS.

Please be aware of this issue if you plan on running Sitecore 9.1 on ltsc2019 in a hybrid Docker swarm cluster. Thankfully a Windows update should be available soon.

Sitecore 9.0.2 XP is only for 1803 (for now, ltsc2019 could be made if there is a need. There are working XM images on ltsc2019).

This is the images for 9.1 on ltsc2019:

Try it out

  1. Clone https://github.com/sitecoreops/sitecore-images.
  2. Build the images, see the instructions.
  3. Create the folder structure under .\data for the volume mounts, see example.
  4. If you built the images on another machine you need to prefix the images with your repository name else you can leave it as is.
  5. Start with: docker-compose up -d

You now have a fully functional Sitecore 9.1 XP running :)
