Every so often there is a game changer in technology that completely disrupts how people operate.
Over the last six years that game changer has been cloud computing — in the past two years it has
been containers (often interchangeably known as Docker).
Container technologies have substantial benefits especially given the
need to isolate applications to increase service levels. Linux Containers (LXC) and Docker containers can be your best choice, depending on your use case.
Hey all, this is David Press and Doug Lardo, two engineers working on improving the data center networking that enables online services at Riot. This article is the third part in a series on exactly that topic, which begins with an overview from Jonathan of a platform we called rCluster. This time we’ll be discussing our approach to Software Defined Networking (SDN), how we integrate SDN with Docker, and the new infrastructure paradigms that this combination has unlocked for us. If you’re curious about how SDN can transform infrastructure, how to empower developers to obtain and secure networking resources via an API, or how to get out of purchasing larger and larger specialized networking appliances, this article is for you.
Die Anwendungscontainerisierung wird bei Unternehmen immer beliebter, da sie damit ihre Entwicklungsgeschwindigkeit und -effizienz steigern können. Entwickler können jede Anwendung leicht als schlanken, eigenständigen Container verpacken, ausliefern und ausführen, der so gut wie überall eingesetzt werden kann. Dies führt zu einer sofortigen Portierbarkeit der Anwendung.
Um den aktuellen Stand des Container-Monitorings besser zu verstehen, haben wir 100 Führungskräfte befragt und die wichtigsten Trends für Container identifiziert. In diesem eBook beschreiben wir jeden einzelnen Trend und bieten handlungsrelevante Anleitungen und nächste Schritte, mit denen Sie das Monitoring Ihrer Container-Umgebung beherrschen können.
Un numero sempre crescente di aziende ricorre alla containerizzazione delle applicazioni per aumentare l'efficienza e la velocità dello sviluppo. Grazie ai container, gli sviluppatori possono inserire in un pacchetto, inviare ed eseguire qualunque applicazione sotto forma di container leggero e autosufficiente, eseguibile praticamente ovunque, per garantire la portabilità istantanea dell'applicazione.
Per comprendere più chiaramente lo stato del monitoraggio dei container, abbiamo intervistato 100 executive e identificato i principali trend per i container. In questo eBook viene esaminato ogni singolo trend, quindi vengono forniti indicazioni concrete e passi successivi da compiere per garantire il controllo completo del monitoraggio dell'ambiente container.
La contenedorización de aplicaciones es cada vez más popular para las organizaciones como un método para mejorar la velocidad y la eficiencia de su desarrollo. Los contenedores permiten a los desarrolladores empaquetar, enviar y ejecutar fácilmente aplicaciones en forma de contenedor ligero y autosuficiente que puede ejecutarse prácticamente en cualquier lugar, ya que permite una portabilidad instantánea de las aplicaciones.
Para comprender mejor el estado de la monitorización de contenedores, hemos encuestado a 100 directivos y hemos identificado las diez tendencias principales en cuanto a contenedores. En este libro electrónico, abordaremos cada una de las tendencias y ofreceremos indicaciones y pasos adecuados para dominar la monitorización del entorno de contenedores.
Every industry is going through digital transformation. Whether retail, manufacturing, media, finance, or software - in order to survive organizations are changing the way they operate in order to meet the demands of today’s connected customers. Whether it’s Uber redefining urban transportation for consumers, Slack enabling teams to collaborate in totally new ways, or Docker rivaling legacy virtualization providers, innovation is being powered by technology, and it’s happening faster than ever before.
A microservice architecture provides benefits in the areas of service isolation and deployment as well as independent scalability. These benefits lead to more rapid release cycles and better use of available resources. But a microservice architecture also presents a host of new challenges in both deployment as well as performance management.
The benefits to microservices far outweigh their challenges and, by identifying them early, you can plan for and ensure that your adoption of a microservices architecture goes smoothly.
Container technologies like Docker promise to transform the way enterprises develop, deploy, and manage critical applications. However, containers are no panacea. The same challenges around deploying and managing applications in native environments and virtual machines also affect container deployments.
Large enterprises are exploring the possibilities enabled by emerging container technologies such as Docker. At Juniper, we see this trend as a milestone in data center innovation, offering significant gains in efficiency, productivity, and agility for large enterprises that offer cloud as a service.

The container revolution is under way today as companies seek to move faster and build digital assets
to support growth. IDC forecasts that there will be over 1.8 billion enterprise container instances
deployed by 2021. Container platforms will be key to managing the ever-expanding diversity of
IT environments (multiple operating systems, hypervisors, private clouds, and public clouds).
While containers are the perfect vehicle to underpin cloud-native, microservices applications,
containers are also well suited to many existing applications. These applications can reap immediate
benefits from being modernized and prepare for possible refactoring over time. To successfully
leverage containers in these diverse scenarios and do it at scale, enterprises will need a robust,
integrated, and holistic container platform.
Docker containers exploded onto the scene in 2013 as a better way to develop
software and has quickly become part of the enterprise infrastructure. Organizations
often start by containerizing applications -- either components of a monolithic
application or new distributed applications. But containerization itself isn’t enough
to become more innovative. It requires changing processes, culture and the overall
organizational mindset. That makes a container platform essential to success.
In this paper, we will discuss what a container platform
is and why it’s a critical part of any effort to drive
change and innovation in the digital economy.

Learning about containers is a bit like learning about Linux or learn?
ing about Go: it’s potentially a huge topic! But everyone has to begin
somewhere. This lesson will give you an introduction to some of the
key concepts of containers and walk you through some examples of
using Docker containers with Go code.
This report provides a detailed overview of the Linux container ecosystem. It explains the various components of container technology and analyzes the ecosystem contributions from companies to accelerate the adoption of Linux-based containers.
