Docker and the Three Ways of DevOps Part 3: The Third Way – Culture of Continuous Experimentation and Learning

written by John Willis, Evangelist at Docker The Third Way of DevOps completes the full cycle. It has also been referred to as just “Continuous Learning”. In DevOps speak, we sometimes allude to the word Kaizen as a method of continuous improvement in an organization. This “Kaizen” being achieved through a culture of continuous experimentation and learning throughout all activities in an organization.

Docker and the Three Ways of DevOps Part 2: The Second Way – Amplify Feedback Loops

written by John Willis, Evangelist at Docker In the previous post in this series, we discussed patterns of applying DevOps principles in a way that yields high performance outcomes. In part two, we are going to discuss what is called “The Second Way”.  This second “way” is ultimately about amplifying and shortening feedback loops such that corrections can be made fast and continuously. This is sometimes referred to as the right to left flow. A defect is not a defect unless it hits the customer. Lean principles teach us that the earlier we can catch a potential downstream defect, the less costly it will be on the overall cost of the service delivery. Therefore the three V’s also apply in this “Second Way”. Velocity of a correction in the flow is essential. Variation also plays a role in the “Second Continue reading…

Docker and the Three Ways of DevOps Part 1: The First Way – Systems Thinking

written by John Willis, Evangelist at Docker Have you read Gene Kim’s The Phoenix Project? Some of the principles behind the Phoenix Project and an upcoming book I am co-authoring with Gene (The DevOps Cookbook) have been referred to as the “Three Ways of DevOps”. These are particular patterns of applying DevOps principles in a way that yields high performance outcomes.

Online meetup recap: A new model for image distribution

  Continuing our Docker Online meetup series centered on the Docker 1.6 release, we are pleased to share the video recording from Tuesday’s webinar with Stephen Day, distribution tech lead at Docker. In this session, Stephen first gives a little history around the first version of the Docker Registry API V1 before introducing the design of Docker Registry HTTP API V2 and implementation of Registry 2.0. Stephen ends the talk with a preview of the future of Docker image distribution. Check out the video recording and the slides below for more details!

Docker Selected as a Gartner Cool Vendor in DevOps

Docker is pleased to have been included in Gartner’s latest “Cool Vendors in DevOps, 2015“report, published April 21. In the report, Gartner notes: “As virtualization and cloud applications grow beyond being single images run on premise to being comprised of multiple tiers that can be run and scaled in a hybrid cloud, new approaches are needed to reduce complexity.” Docker is focused on reducing the complexities of building, shipping and running distributed applications, whether deployed on prem or in the cloud. We blieve our inclusion in the report reflects the progress that we’ve made over the last year to develop the tools and technologies that increase productivity for development and operations teams alike  – at every phase of the distributed application lifecycle.

docker run -ti chanezon/dockerized Chanezon -v

I am a software platform builder. I joined Docker last week, to help Solomon and the Docker team build the distributed computing platform we need for the next decade, as software eats the world and is assembled in systems composed of high number of devices collaborating with even higher numbers of cloud services: a future where the paint covering the walls of your house will host thousands of units of computing, some of them getting power from the Sun, others collaborating with millions of cloud services. About me I am a software developer and storyteller, but above all, a platform guy. I spent 10 years building platforms at Netscape & Sun, then 10 years evangelizing platforms at Google, VMware & Microsoft. My main professional interest is in building and kickstarting the network effect for these wondrous two-sided markets called Platforms.

Why I Love Docker… and Why You’ll Love it Too

About Me John Willis joined docker from the recent Socketplane acquisition. John is one of the founding members of the core Devopsdays team and was an early executive of both Chef and Enstratius (sold to Dell).   A little history… In early February 2013, I received a tweet from Adrian Cole telling me that I should talk to this Dotcloud outfit. I typically don’t ignore Adrian (not a wise move), but this time, in all honesty, I ignored his tweet. At the time, the public PaaS market was a race to the bottom. Heroku was killing Engine Yard and I wasn’t really a fan of this space anyway. I felt PaaS’s were too opinionated for building infrastructure and a Public PaaS made it even worse. About two weeks went by and I received another ping from someone else telling me that I Continue reading…
