Some IT initiatives, such as disaster recovery, are natural fits for cloud computing. Yet it can be challenging to know exactly where to begin when it comes to configuring self-managed recovery plans and replicating virtual machines (VMs) from on-premises to a cloud service provider.
I am a member of the Docker special interest group at Rackspace. We recently welcomed CoreOS CTO Brandon Philips to visit us to discuss CoreOS and Docker. Brandon is no stranger to Rackspace. He is an alumnus of the Rackspace Cloud Monitoring team (my current team). Here’s a recap of some of the key points that Brandon made during the discussion.
Value Added Resellers, or VARs, have for a long time found marked success in fulfillment of hardware, software and professional services gaps that traditional tier one hardware manufacturers could not or chose not to realize; largely due to inability to scale down to lower volume thresholds.
The Shop.org Summit is one of the largest ecommerce events of the year. This year, the summit heads to Seattle from Monday, September 29 to Wednesday, October 1.

The time has come to change the way we create, develop and ship applications. At Docker, we believe it should be quick and painless to ship application workloads across environments (dev, test and production) and hosts (laptops, data centers and clouds). Docker container technology is quickly pushing us toward that reality.
