Ask the Experts: Are Containers a Threat to OpenStack? This all-star panel discussion will discuss and debate if containers are a threat to OpenStack. This panel discussion will be recorded as a “Speaking in Tech” Podcast which is distributed by Europe’s largest tech publication, The Register.
Openstack, Docker, Kubernetes, and CoreOS can provide a foundation for infrastructure provisioning and application deployment in the enterprise. Openstack as a private cloud IaaS solution, is successfully driving infrastructure automation, and maximizing the utilization of compute, network and storage systems. Enterprises are also starting to use containers to manage their application lifecycle. Containers make applications… Continue reading Building the Enterprise Cloud with Openstack, Docker, Kubernetes, and CoreOS
The conventional approach to deploying applications on OpenStack uses virtual machines (usually KVM) backed by block devices (usually Ceph RBD). As interest increases in container-based application deployment models like Docker, it is worth looking at what alternatives exist for combining compute and storage (both shared and non-shared). Mapping RBD block devices directly to host kernels… Continue reading Keeping OpenStack storage trendy with Ceph and containers
Controlling the performance of your applications in real-time and maximizing the efficiency of virtual infrastructure within OpenStack and Docker Environments is the key to boosting IT ROI. In this demo, we will show how application performance and maximizing infrastructure utilization can exist in perfect harmony.…Full session details here:
EMC XtremIO all flash array is known for it’s high throughput and fast IOPS. ClusterHQ Flocker integrates EMC XtremIO with Docker persistence storage and brings all the goodies of flash with resiliency. The video demo demonstrates the details of how this can be achieved by using a plugin developed by EMC and ClusterHQ.
Docker had a breakout year in 2014 with more than 100M downloads and its momentum continues into this year. While virtualization technology abstracts away the hardware, Docker instead abstracts away the OS. While this seems like an incremental improvement, this design paradigm of bringing virtualization one layer closer has potentially tremendous ramifications. But what new… Continue reading Docker Networking in OpenStack: What you need to know now.
Docker containers are an ideal platform for the Big Data analytics use case because of their unique security and performance advantages. Big Data work loads typically use distributed file systems to provide shared access to both input and output data sets. OpenStack Manila is an excellent way to manage distributed file systems in the Cloud… Continue reading Big Data Analytics and Docker: The Thrilla in Manila
