The 4 Biggest Questions About Docker from VMworld 2016

Simply incredible. We spent last week at VMworld speaking with thousands of enterprise security, infrastructure and virtualization pros. It was humbling to witness all of the curiosity and excitement around Docker at the show, and how Docker clearly made a strong impression on the attendees. This curiosity around Docker and its use within enterprise environments is the reason why i’m writing this blog. We noticed that there were many of the same questions that arose, and we figured we should share them with you, as you start your journey towards adopting Docker containers and VMs. Here are the most commonly asked questions from the conference. What is Docker? Or even a container? Is it a lightweight VM? Can I use it with vSphere? What value do they provide?   Containers are really about applications, not servers. That’s why they aren’t VMs. Continue reading…

Webinar: Containerization for the Virtualization Admin

If you’re a virtualization admin there’s a good chance that the word “container” has floated by in the last few months. This is because enterprises of all sizes are now looking to leverage the power of containerization. But what is containerization and how can you leverage containers while also making use of your investment in virtualization?

Docker and HPE: Accelerating modern app architectures in enterprise datacenters

Docker has evolved tremendously over the last 3 years to empower developers and IT operations teams to maintain greater control over their own environments without sacrificing agility. From an ops tool used by the original dotCloud team, to Docker’s commercially supported Containers-as-a-Service (CaaS) platform, Docker Datacenter (DDC), Docker has been at the forefront of this evolution. Today we are excited to announce the next evolution in the Docker story providing enterprises with infrastructure optimized for the Docker platform with the leading provider of cloud infrastructure – Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE). Together, Docker and HPE will deliver integrated and fully supported Docker ready HPE x86 servers, bundled with Docker’s commercially supported Engine (CS Engine) right out of the box.

So, when do you use a Container or VM?

Recently I was giving a talk at a trade show on the basics of Docker, and how an application goes from an idea to being a production workload running on a Universal Control Plane managed Swarm cluster. As part of that talk, I spent a bit of time talking about how containers are not VMs. This was especially relevant as most of the attendees currently worked as virtualization sysadmins. During the QA portion of the session one of the attendees asked me “When does my application go in a VM and when does it go in a container?”

To Use Physical Or To Use Virtual: That is the container deployment question

I have had a version of the following conversation more than a few times with community members trying to sort out where to run their containerized apps in production: User: So, where should I run my containers? Bare metal or VM’s Me: It’s not a question of “either / or” – that’s the beauty of Docker. That choice is based solely on what’s right for your application and business goals – physical or virtual, cloud or on premise. Mix and match as your application and business needs dictate (and change). User: But, surely you have a recommendation. Me: I’m going to give you the two word answer that nobody likes: It depends. User: You’re right, I don’t like that answer. Me: I kind of figured you wouldn’t, but it really is the right answer. There are tough questions in the Continue reading…
