5 Ways to Beat the Clock on Windows Server 2008 End of Support

In just over one year, Microsoft support for Windows Server 2008 will come to an end. Without the proper planning in place, the ripple effects may impact your business. The cost of maintenance will skyrocket, while security and compliance risks will increase without regular patches. So, how can companies beat the clock? The short answer is enterprise container platforms can provide a fast and simple way to transform expensive and difficult-to-maintain applications into efficient, secure and portable applications ready for modern infrastructure – whether current Windows Server releases (such as WS 2016 or later) and/or into the cloud. Taking this approach saves a significant amount of money and improves security and performance across the application lifecycle. We are already seeing immediate demand from customers in modernizing their existing Windows Server applications in preparation for the end of support in January Continue reading…

Top 5 Blog of 2018: Improved Docker Container Integration with Java 10

As 2018 comes to a close, we looked back at the top five blogs that were most popular with our readers. For those of you that had difficulties with memory and CPU sizing/usage when running Java Virtual Machine (JVM) in a container, we are kicking off the week with a blog that explains how to get improved Docker container integration with Java 10 in Docker Desktop ( Mac or Windows) and Docker Enterprise environments. Many applications that run in a Java Virtual Machine (JVM), including data services such as Apache Spark and Kafka and traditional enterprise applications, are run in containers. Until recently, running the JVM in a container presented problems with memory and cpu sizing and usage that led to performance loss. This was because Java didn’t recognize that it was running in a container. With the release of Java 10, the JVM Continue reading…

Docker and MuleSoft Partner to Accelerate Innovation for Enterprises

A convergence of forces in SaaS, IoT, cloud, and mobile have placed unprecedented requirements on businesses to accelerate innovation to meet those rapidly changing preferences. The big don’t eat the small, the fast eat the slow. The industry has offered several solutions to this acceleration problem – from working harder to outsourcing and devops, but none of those solutions have really offered the levels of acceleration needed. The reason: there is too much friction slowing the art of the possible. Docker and MuleSoft remove friction in the innovation process, from ideation all the way to deployment. MuleSoft provides a tops down architectural approach, with API-first design and implementation. The Docker approach is bottoms up from the perspective of the application workload with containerization, to both modernize traditional applications and create of new applications.   Marrying those two approaches combined with Continue reading…
