Containers are among the most discussed topics in the world of enterprise software today, especially when Docker comes into play. We invited Jussi Nummelin, core engineer building container orchestration at Kontena, Inc. and speaker at JAX DevOps, to talk about the benefits of containers and his favorite tools and to weigh in on containers’ “silver bullet” label.
Life is beautiful when tech giants like AWS, IBM, Google, Microsoft and Alibaba promise to maintain and contribute to the development of containerd, a core container runtime. To avoid association with Docker, it is available as a standalone GitHub project.
In this article, Orlando L. Otero, Sr. Application Engineer at Oracle, explains how to implement integration testing using Spring Boot, Postgres and Docker to pull Docker images, start container(s), run the DAOs-related tests using one or multiple Docker containers and dispose them once the tests are completed.
Discussions about a possible Docker fork have taken the industry by storm. We have the group which supports Docker 1.12 and points out its strengths and the group which claims that what the world needs right now is “boring core infrastructure.” We asked Viktor Farcic, Senior Consultant at CloudBees, to tell us what he thinks about Docker 1.12 and to weigh in on this Docker fork discussion.
A future-proof IT infrastructure is becoming an increasingly decisive competitive advantage for companies. This is because the customer expectations for apps and websites are growing constantly. To ensure seamless processes and prevent limitations to functionality at all times, companies require tools that guarantee speed, stability and scalability.
Each Monday we take a step back and analyze what has happened in the previous week. Last week we wondered if Docker can truly be ousted and we invited a couple of specialists to weigh in on this matter. We welcomed a new Angular 2 release candidate and we brought the interruptions discussion back into the spotlight.
Discussions about a possible Docker fork have taken the industry by storm. We have the group which supports Docker 1.12 and points out its strengths and the group which claims that what the world needs right now is “boring core infrastructure.” We asked Benjamin Wootton, the co-founder of Contino, to tell us what he thinks about Docker 1.12 and to weigh in on this Docker fork discussion.
No software architect can resist the temptation to talk about their experience with microservices. We launched an interview series with experts who talked about the benefits and challenges of microservices, when people should not use them and what impact they have on an organization. Our third interviewee is Daniël van Gils, a polyglot developer advocate at Cloud 66 and JAX London speaker.
No time to play nice. Google’s Craig McLuckie took to Twitter to reveal his thoughts about the need for “a container runtime and format standard to emerge beyond the (current) scope of OCI,” but he’s not the only one to throw a rock at Docker. The dissatisfaction with Docker is out in the open now and one of the most popular fears is that the container ecosystem could be pulled to pieces. Let’s analyze the facts.
Apache Mesos 1.0 is out! We talked to Michael Hausenblas from Mesosphere about efficient use cases for Apache Mesos, differences between Mesos, Kubernetes and Docker Swarm and changes in version 1.0.
In this article Roland Grunberg, Software Engineer at Red Hat, presents a handful of new features available in Eclipse Neon. If you find yourself using Docker images/containers, you should try out this plugin as it’s sure to simplify various use cases.
This tutorial should help you create a Spring Boot microservice that is executed and deployed in a Docker container which can be configured and managed in the same place where we handle the Spring Boot application.
Microservices and containers such as Docker are among the most discussed topics in the world of enterprise software today. Many DevOps practitioners are looking at these technologies as a key part of delivering large software projects faster. While successful implementations are most common among smaller, “born in the cloud” organizations, larger enterprises can benefit from microservices and containers too — as long as they address some challenges head-on.
Container orchestration is no joke and, according to the Docker core engineering team, it is at the same stage today as containerization was three years ago. Docker 1.12 contains new API objects such as Service and Node that will allow users to utilize the Docker API to deploy and manage apps on a group of Docker Engines called a swarm. With this new release, “the best way to orchestrate Docker is Docker,” the team claims.
