A couple of weeks ago Docker released Version 1.12 with the new Docker Swarm Mode which is now integrated in Docker Engine, and thus no longer container-based.
With this comes a whole bunch of built-in orchestration, load-balancing, scheduling and other features bringing Docker and its platform closer to other Datacenter Operating Systems (DCOS) such as Mesos or Kubernetes.
Here is a link list with interesting blog posts, slides and videos on these new features:
Docker 1.12 adds the largest and most sophisticated set of features into a single release since the beginning of the Docker project.
