A Docker container can support a wide variety of use casesincluding some that are just plain silly. Heres a look at examples of just-for-fun or experimental projects that you probably dont expect to encounter in the world of Docker.
Containers are being adopted rapidly by a diverse range of businesses seeking a modularized microservice-based architecture. Containers are highly scalable and allow you to push code out rapidly and frequently.
Rancher is expanding the scope of its Longhorn Project by extending the distributed storage platform to support all available Kubernetes clusters, as the open source software firm continues to bet on Kubernetes continued massive-scale adoption. Rancher began Project Longhorn after Rancher began to offer persistent storage for its open source container management platform over a year ago.
A CloudBees effort to make it easier to deploy the Jenkins continuous integration/continuous delivery (CI/CD) platform is taking shape, thanks to Kubernetes container orchestration software and support for the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. CloudBees CEO Sacha Labourey says containers will make it substantially easier to set up the open source CI/CD platform.
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) today moved a step closer to making persistent external storage more easily accessible to a Kubernetes cluster by formally adding beta support for the Container Storage Interface (CSI) and persistent local volumes. The latest version of Kubernetes, version 1.10, also adds an external client-go credential provider (alpha) as well as support for CoreDNS at install time in beta.
IT organizations may not have the requisite security controls to take advantage of new container-related tools and services IBM announced this month. Traditional on-premises security tools, even those configured to ward off modern-day threats, will largely lack the monitoring capabilities to handle the jump in data traffic and complexities running on new container services launched by IBM, as well as by Amazon, Microsoft and others, says RaniOsnat, vice president, Marketing at Aqua Security.
DevOps teams or anyone who manages containers can now get their hands dirty testing the final tech previews of container management platform Rancher 2.0 shortly before its launch in a few weeks. Ahead of the availability of the production version of Rancher 2.0 in April, Rancher is releasing the last of Rancher 2.0s tech preview releases.
Kubernetes has become a standard waymany would say the standard way to deploy containerized applications at scale. But if Kubernetes helps us to tame sprawling and complex container deployments, whats available to help us tame Kubernetes?
The march to make containers a foundational element of stateful applications across the enterprise got a boost this week with Mesosphere announcing it will resell PX-Enterprise storage software from Portworx. The agreement extends an existing technology alliance that has resulted in the two companies sharing several joint customers, including including GE Digital, Verizon, NIO, athenahealth and Beco Inc. Mesosphere CEO Florian Leibert says success of the alliance is indicative of just how much progress is now being made in terms of deploying stateful applications based on containers in production environments.
Mesosphere today moved to make good on a promise to incorporate Kubernetes clusters into the DC/OS platform to provide a way to more easily integrate microservices applications with disparate back-end data sources. With the release of version 1.11 of DC/OS, IT organizations now have the option to deploy Kubernetes as an alternative to the Marathon container orchestration platform Mesosphere previously supported.
