IT Starts with Docker

Happy SysAdmin Day! Cheers to all of you who keep your organizations running, keep our data secure, respond at a moment’s notice and bring servers and apps back to life after a crash.

Happy SysAdmin Day!

The last Friday in July is the day the world celebrates sysadmins and all that they do.  And as more and more apps dominate our personal and professional waking hours and with the non-stop growth in the number of servers – physical, virtual, and cloud – the role is only growing in importance. Sysadmins have a special role in the history of Docker: back-in-the-day, Solomon was a sysadmin, and it was his frustration with trying to manage and maintain golden tarballs that triggered his thinking, “There’s gotta be a better way….” Several years and an iteration or two later, Docker was born. The clean separation of concerns that Docker provides between the developer – responsible for the app inside of the container – and the sysadmin – responsible for the “outside,” or deploying, scaling, and managing the container – have made it Continue reading…
