If you have installed OpenStack manually, you would have gone through a long sequence of installing and configuring various services and drivers. In every cases, these services and drivers run as processes on hosts designated as controllers, compute nodes, etc. When containers became a topic of interest to the community about two years... Continue reading OpenStack in containers
Containers are now alive and well on OpenStack: not only can users easily deploy containers but OpenStack services themselves have been well containerized, as evident in projects such as Kolla and OpenStack Ansible. The next natural question is, how do containers scale? In other words, what happens when ten of thousands containers are... Continue reading How do containers scale on OpenStack?
Serverless architectures are one of the hottest trends in cloud computing this year, and for good reason. There are several technical capabilities and business factors coming together that make this approach very attractive. Continue reading What makes serverless architectures so attractive?
My colleague Chris Ferris recently posted on how he got to run the Hyperledger Fabric natively on Mac. Knowing that I have a Windows machine he prompted me to try and do the same on Windows. So I did and here is what I can say about my experiment. “Natively” First, I need to say... Continue reading Running Hyperledger Fabric “Natively” on Windows
It's really, really hot and humid down here in sunny Florida. So, I got my tennis in early this weekend (it was still really hot!) and then settled in for a little experimentation for the rest of the long, hot days. I've been wanting to install Docker for Mac (Beta) ever since it was released, but haven't had... Continue reading Running Hyperledger Fabric Natively on Mac
This blog post will cover setting up a development environment for Kubernetes. This series of posts is primarily for developers, technical writers, and testers who are, or will be, working on the Kubernetes project. Continue reading Kubernetes Developer Guide – Part 1
In the first half of 2015, we have been traveling around the world to participate in key Open Tech organization events from OpenStack to Cloud Foundry and Docker. It seems fitting that as we reach this midway point in the year that we turn our sights on OSCON to celebrate ALL of our favorite open... Continue reading Open Tech Rolling Thunder 2015 – OSCON
After attending the DockerCon 2015 conference, it is clear that Docker is going through significant changes to provide many new features. To do so, and in order to grow its developers community, the code base is being divided into smaller projects. This way more developers can better master the smaller projects and become... Continue reading Growing Pains: A New Phase in the Development of Docker
The majority of Cloud applications today aren't just one "thing". They are many, or have a roadmap to get to many “things”, spanning Mobile, Big Data & Analytics, Internet of Things, Cognitive, Hybrid, Integrated, and Secured. These are all the capabilities in new and existing applications that our clients are looking for right now!... Continue reading The Power of Containers in Bringing Reference Architectures to Life!
