About Docker -

Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production*, on VMs, bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above. Common use cases for Docker include: This Funding Will Disappear In 10 Seconds. I know that the Ephemeralization of 2014 is generally traced to some privacy potion of Edward Snowden, NSA, and Target credit card leaks, but few seem willing to track its popularity back to its source – Oracle.

This Funding Will Disappear In 10 Seconds

You see, Oracle’s marketing people are geniuses. Following the continued outrage over today’s perilous state of MySQL, the open-source database acquired through its acquisition of Sun Microsystems, the Oracle marketing team had a sudden epiphany. Truncated data and missing rows aren’t bugs – they’re now mission-critical features!

After years of handwringing over what cloud computing means and how it should function, a startup called Mesosphere might have the answer.

Mesosphere thinks everyone’s servers should run like Twitter’s do, and it’s here to help

Its vision is that applications and services should be easy to launch, easy to scale and always have the resources they need. It’s the kind of automation you’ll find managing servers inside Google or Facebook data centers or, more accurately, at Twitter. Mesosphere is in the early stages of commercializing Mesos, an open-source resource-management system developed first at the University of California, Berkeley’s AMPLab and now an Apache Software Foundation project. Among its biggest users are webscale companies such as Twitter and Airbnb, which use it to achieve the same type of data center automation that Google has built for itself via its vaunted Borg system.
