Docker Out in Force at the OpenStack Summit

I. Overview The 2013 OpenStack summit has come to a close, and Docker was out in force. We sent a full 16% of the company there! (Well, three people—Ben Golub, Sam Alba, and Nick Stinemates). The conference itself was incredible—over 3,000 people from 58 countries were there, over 2/3 of whom had never attended a summit before. Overall, the pace of OpenStack adoption and growth has been very impressive. (For a quick overview on OpenStack, see the keynote,  or Randy Bias and Scott Sanchez’s latest “State of the Stack” talk.) While a Docker driver for OpenStack Nova had already been accepted into OpenStack for the Havana release, it became clear during the conference that Docker and containers had impacts and implications far beyond the Nova driver.

Running Docker on Rackspace with Ubuntu

I noticed there were already directions on how to install on Amazon EC2 but nothing for the Rackspace Cloud. If you would like to run Docker on the RackSpace Cloud using Ubuntu you’re in luck. I just spent the afternoon figuring out how to get it installed on Ubuntu 12.04, 12.10, and 13.04, and I have included my notes below. 13.04 is the easiest to get up and running since it has the most recent kernel, but the others aren’t too bad either, they just need a few more steps, to get them up to par. I would love to expand this to other distros on Rackspace, so if you come up with more, send me a note, and so Continue reading…
