Docker has broken a record in the speed in which it moved from being a disruptive technology to a commodity. The speed of adoption and popularity of Docker brings with it lots of confusion. In this post I wanted to focus on a trend of commentary that has been gaining popularity that I’ve started to... Read more
What's really accelerating today's pace of change in software is the combinations of many open source parts building on and amplifying each other. It's a dynamic that just isn't possible with proprietary software.
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.
