Monitoring is key to Docker success in production

Recently O’Reilly and Dynatrace Ruxit conducted a survey about the container and Docker ecosystem. The goal of the survey was to understand technology adoption across the lifecycle. Besides offering some surprising stats on Docker adoption, the survey identifies some key challenges faced by early adopters of Docker. Docker is the delivery stack of the future Adoption of Docker and related container technologies in production environments is on the rise. A majority of survey participants are already using … read more

Deep diving into your Mesos cluster

With the recent successes and near-omnipresence of Docker in the IT industry during the past two years, the common approach to deploying applications into environments has changed dramatically. Containerization is everywhere and “Going cloud” has become a mainstream mantra! Computing clusters in private and public clouds are also common now. Clustering makes data centers liquid Data centers are no longer just collections of computing instances and servers. Increasingly data centers … read more
