On the docker-dev list someone asked about Fedora documentation that described how you add a user to the docker group. The user wanted to allow his users to do a docker search to try to find images that they could use.
In my guide, I wrote about doing your research by casting a wide net, then evaluating yourself (your skills, your goals, and your time). In this evaluation to find the right fit, I looked at my motivations and skills, made a list of goals, and named a few target projects. I evaluate four open... Read more
In my previous on article on Docker Security, I wrote that containers do not contain. In this second part, I cover the security features that have been added to Docker to attempt to control processes within a container.
When it comes to open source cloud projects, everybody has an opinion. A new survey attempts to take a broad look at those opinions and learn something about the state of the state of the open cloud and where it is headed.
With the growing potential of Docker, it's becoming clear that the future of at least some of the data center is going to be containerized. But there are still challenges in getting containerized applications deployed and managed across real and virtual hardware.
The rise of containers do not spell the end of the importance of the operating system in application infrastructure. Because the operating system provides the framework and support for all the containers sitting above it, it plays an even greater role than it does with virtualized instances.
It doesn't matter whether it is pianos or teddy bears, containers provide consistency that manufacturers and transporters can rely on. Just as shipping containers have revolutionized the import/export industry, you've heard that Docker is doing the same in tech.
While it's clear that Docker and container-based architecture is rapidly becoming a popular development and deployment paradigm, there are still a number of areas where containers still struggle compared to traditional bare-metal or virtualized solutions.
Twitter has shifted its way of thinking about how to launch a new service thanks to the Apache Mesos project, an open source technology that brings together multiple servers into a shared pool of resources. It's an operating system for the data center. "When is the last time you've seen the fail... Read more
Let me start by saying this is absolutely not a Docker bashing article. I actually love Docker, and I think it is an outstanding piece of software that will have great success. But I have to confess, I’m not sure that it deserves the virtualization moniker that so many in the industry are hanging... Read more
