Docker Inc. recently unveiled an exciting new open source project called Libswarm designed to make the using containers in the public cloud a lot easier.
Rackspace CTO John Engates this week delivered one of the opening keynotes at DockerCon in San Francisco.
San Francisco is a city surrounded: in the morning by sparkling water, sunny weather and the sound of seagulls; in the evening by bone-chilling wind and impenetrable fog; at night by the ambient electricity of imagination and the fertile dreamscapes of shining tomorrows.
There are a lot of good reasons to be excited about containers, a form of operating system-level virtualization with many applications. At Mailgun, we’re excited about containers for four major reasons:
The concept of virtualization makes cloud computing possible and plenty of people are familiar with machine-level virtualization hypervisors such as Xen, KVM and VMware. Machine-level virtualization is an intuitive abstraction level for a lot of enterprise computing workloads because it makes one server look like many servers. Yet there’s a growing interest in operating system-level virtualization and new projects are emerging to take advantage of the unique properties of this technology for cloud computing.
