In the DevOps environment, Docker can no longer be reduced only to a container runtime. An application that is divided into several microservices has greater orchestration requirements instead of simple scripts. For this, Docker has introduced the service abstraction Docker Swarm to help orchestrate containers across multiple hosts.
A system such as Kubernetes can be viewed from different angles. Some think of it in terms of infrastructure, as the successor to OpenStack, although the infrastructure is cloud-agnostic. For others, it is a platform which makes it easier to orchestrate microservice architectures — or cloud-native architectures, as they are called nowadays — to deploy applications more easily, plus making them more resilient and scalable.
Higher quality, stability as well as faster time-to-market make Continuous Delivery a must. But are you ready for it? Jez Humble, author of the Jolt Award winning Continuous Delivery book, says if you can affirmatively answer these five questions you are ready!
It’s a common claim to say a new technology is revolutionizing the tech industry. But in this case, the revolution might be containerized. We dive into the hype about Docker to see what it’s all about with help from 12 Docker captains.
Docker is great, but sometimes you need a few pointers. We asked 12 Docker captains their top hack for our favorite container platform. We got some helpful advice and specific instructions on how to avoid problems when using Docker. Read on to find out more!
“I started using microservices out of frustration” says Viktor Farcic, Senior Consultant at CloudBees and Speaker at the upcoming DevOpsCon in Munich. We talked about the benefits and challenges of microservices, when people should not use them and what impact they have on an organization.
DevOps has gone through many phases so far but its transformation is not yet completed. DevOpsCon speaker Paul Reed tells us that many companies have embraced DevOps and, if we look closely enough, we will discover that we can apply aspects from humanity’s other “operational” efforts to DevOps.
High-performing organizations seem to have one common pattern: they put a high value on human capital. JAXenter editor Hartmut Schlosser talked to John Willis, Director of Ecosystem Development at Docker, Inc about how to turn human capital into high performance organizational capital.
