Amazon's AWS Lambda service lets us run code without provisioning servers. Serverless offerings have recently been receiving interest due to their simplicity, capabilities and potential for cost reductions. This article compares the tradeoffs of serverless models with VM/Container based models.
This article series explains how containers are actually being used within the enterprise. It dives into the core technology behind containers and how this is currently being used by developers, examines core challenges with deploying containers in the enterprise and the future of containerisation, and discusses the role unikernels are currently playing within leading-edge organisations.
Many of us have already experimented with Docker - for example, running one of the pre-built images from Docker Hub. However, a comprehensive build pipeline is required before deploying any containers into a production environment. This article outlines the steps you need to take for a fully automated continuous-deployment pipeline that builds microservices deployed via Docker containers.
HashiCorp's Million Container Challenge is a test for how efficiently its scheduler, Nomad, can schedule one million containers across 5,000 hosts. This post outlines the lessons learned.
InfoQ recently sat down with Adrian Mouat, author of “Using Docker”, and explored how containers can be best utilised within a typical software development lifecycle.
Xu Wang introduces HyperContainer, a runtime for running Docker images on any hypervisor, providing hardware-enforced isolation for multi-tenant environments.
Book review and interview with Jeff Sussna, author of "Designing Delivery", on cybernetics, service exchange, customer-centric brands and a new definition of quality in a service-oriented world.
The adoption of containers is causing a paradigm shift within the monitoring space. InfoQ recently sat down with a series of container monitoring experts and explored the associated challenges.
Docker Containers LiveLessons aim to show what Docker containers are and how they can be used by practitioners with no previous experience with it. InfoQ has spoken with course instructor Chris Negus.
Security has evolved to be pretty good at granting and managing access to confidential information - by people. But automation is taking over, requiring a shift in how we secure our infrastructure. 1
This article demonstrates a solution for automating the build, deployment and management of a Docker Java microservices application on any cloud or virtualization platform. 1
In this article, the author looks at why developers adopt software. Instead of bombarding people with new features, successful software providers recognize that choice + speed + simplicity = adoption.
