Yesterday, the team at Docker announced that Docker Store and Docker Cloud are now part of Docker Hub. This makes the process of finding, storing and sharing container images easy. The new Docker Hub has an updated user experience where Docker certified and verified publisher images are available for discovery and download. Docker Cloud, a service provided by Docker helps users to connect the Docker Cloud to their existing cloud providers like Azure or AWS. Docker store is used for creating a self-service portal for Docker’s ecosystem partners for publishing and distributing their software through Docker images.
