What is IBM Cloud Container Registry?

Detach the containers registry from IBM Cloud Container Service. Store and distribute Docker images via a stateless, highly scalable server side application.

IBM Cloud Container Registry features


Advanced capabilities like vulnerability scanning, malware detection, deployment policy enforcement, and comprehensive risk assessment and prioritization. Provide security compliance insight and controls over static images and live containers.

Image Distribution

Control the distribution pipeline for your images. Deploy from an existing Docker registry (i.e., DockerHub, Quay, Artifactory, etc).


IBM Cloud preferred image registry; pre-integrated with our container service for your in-house development workflow.

Powered by Kubernetes and Docker

Built on Docker technology and Kubernetes APIs for a single, consistent experience across different cloud infrastructures. We'll manage the master nodes; you customize the worker nodes.

Security is built-in, not bolt-on

Automated encryption, private registries, isolation policies and continuous scanning of Docker images and deployed apps means your production environment will be more secure than either bare metal or a virtual machine.

Cloud and Watson at your fingertips

Over 130 services available to enrich your app, including cognitive, persistent storage, analytics, and identity and access management.
