At conferences, I also hear a lot of people in the Kubernetes community talk about how we need to make it more easy to onboard people. While I think it’s a noble goal to make Kubernetes more usable, I don’t think
The Paths Forward In Container Portability: Part2: Code Portability Today, we discussed how there are no regression tests, there is no complete interface standard, there is definitely pain ahead if we think we can use today’s container images (level 3B) on tomorrow’s container hosts (level 3A), 10 years from now. So, what’s the solution? With
Code Portability Today In Container Portability: Part 1: A Brief History in Code Portability, we explored the genesis of code portability and visited structured computer organization to highlight the six commonly found levels in modern computing. Revisiting the six layers – nobody debates the portability of the upper two layers – Application Programmers know that C
A Brief History in Code Portability Do you know why you can take a Python program and run it on any computer that has a Python interpreter on it? Well, because the computer industry has made a huge amount of investment into providing portability over the last 70 years. In the beginning, computers didn’t have
This presentation is a 16 slide introduction to what must be thought about when building a production cloud. Proper image management is critical engineering task.
I believe the Open Container Initiative (OCI) is a step in the right direction, but I still think Docker Inc. needs to nurture and allow the community to innovate….
Background As has been stated before, Docker containers do not contain all of the parts of the operating system necessary to be considered secure. That said, the advantages of using them is so compelling that many companies, large and small, have began to investigate how to run containers in a production environment. I would argue
