Is Kubernetes simply benefiting from the first mover advantage, or does it have the force to stay the dominant container orchestrator in the enterprise for years to come? The roundtable discusses.
Late last year, I wrote an overview about ClearSky Data. The company has a unique product. They offer an alternative to the usual state of cloud storage, with lots of latency and multiple data copies that you’re paying for individually. What continues to strike me about their offering is its completeness. Make no mistake, this is a fully managed storage solution.
The company has recently announced some exciting developments coming down the pipeline.
Flocker is dead, long live Rook! Or maybe not. Chris Evans gives a look at this ersatz replacement to the recently deceased Flocker, who decided to shutdown in December when they released they had no path to revenue, bucking typical venture capital wisdom.
If you live in the world of containers and Docker, then DockerCon is probably a pretty big deal. It’s being held out in Austin, April 17-20. For those of you who’re not getting their fill of all things Docker during those days, Tech Field Day Extra is planned for the Monday before DockerCon, on April 17. This event is being done in partnership with Docker, and they will be presenting to TFD’s inquisitive panel of delegates along with other companies from their ecosystem. Full video of all presentations will also be available after the event. Tech Field Day was there last year, and they’re excited to return to DockerCon!
Jon Langemak has been writing about container networking for the last couple of years. His Docker 101 series should be required reading for anyone looking to make two containers talk to each other. Jon does a great job of breaking things down into their basic pieces and explaining how to make everything work. In the world of containers, nothing is ever idle. Networking stacks are reimagined, reengineered, and retired quickly. So how can one take material that is designed to educate and make it applicable for the future? Enter the Docker Networking Cookbook.
Revisionist history has a rocky perception in the public imagination. But all it (should) refer to is a reexamination of the historical record in light of new or neglected historical information. Sometimes this is castigated as biased or politicized history, because it often bucks the norms of a given historical narrative. But if we realize […]
The Tech Field Day team has a full roster of events for 2017. They will host two main events, starting in Austin from February 1st-3rd. The second comes on September 27th-29th in Silicon Valley. In between, there will also be three Tech Field Day Extra events at Intertop, Cisco Live US, and VMWorld US.
Nigel Poulton of nigelpoulton.com comments: Docker overlay networking is insanely simple to configure. I mean insanely simple! But lurking beneath the simplicity of the setup are a bunch of moving parts that you really wanna understand if you’re gonna deploy this stuff in your prime-time production estate. Anyway… last week I attended the Docker Open […]
Nigel Poulton of nigelpoulton.com comments: It’s no secret that Docker and containers have been threatening to change the world for a while now. And they already have for some of us. But you know what… there’s always been something missing, something preventing it from taking off big style. Like a missing ingredient or something. Well […]
Nigel Poulton of nigelpoulton.com comments: So Docker, Inc. just announced native clustering and orchestration. TLDR; I reckon it’s the biggest thing to happen to Docker since Docker, and I expect it to be a game-changer. In true Docker form, this is both ridiculously simple, and reassuringly secure. Think I sound like a shill or a […]
