Today’s businesses move at a breakneck speed, and IT departments across the globe are under great pressure when it comes to delivering new technology. Organizations are responding by upgrading and modernizing their IT solutions to adapt to the current pace, scale, and economic climate amidst the fear of being destroyed by the competition. Hybrid cloud services and automation technologies are the new salvoes in any IT-enabled business. As these new tools become core components, the risk of siloing critical information is making it harder to implement a cloud solution that is in alignment with the business and that responds to its demands.

Docker Containers and the Electric Guitar

Nov 10, 2014 8:00:00 AM Docker Containers

We have certainly been excited about Docker's container technology and have taken some early steps to help educate our peers about what it is and why you should care.  Whether it's been conversations over the water cooler or the more formal Docker training that we're hosting next month, we quickly see a bright future for Docker containers.

In March 2013, Docker released their container framework on Github and 18 months later, it's hard to imagine a technology that has been so broadly adopted across the industry in such a short period of time. This was even more evident at the first DockerCon this past June as all leading cloud technology providers such as Rackspace, Amazon, Google, & Red Hat were all on hand to announce their embracing of Docker's technology.

There are lots of good books on Lean Manufacturing, the American Manufacturing industry during World War II, and the Toyota Production System.  These all speak to the importance of the mass production, standardized processes, and managing inventory - all of which are extremely important for managing data centers.  After all, today's data centers are in the IT Manufacturing business and those that excel in mass production have a competitive advantage over their peers.

Install Vagrant

Vagrant is a tool written by Mitchell Hashimoto to streamline the process of provisioning virtual instances. By using vagrant, developers can rapidly create an isolated environment to deploy and test applications on their local machines using a PhoenixServer pattern.

Originally, Vagrant only supported VirtualBox, but today extensions exist for AWS, Digital Ocean, RackSpace & VMWare environments as well. Imagine the value of deploying an application the same way in Amazon's EC2 that you do on your local machine ... all within a few minutes.

As part of my "PaaS Anywhere" talk at this year's Red Hat Summit, I deployed OpenShift Origin and Enterprise into multiple Cloud Providers - including RackspaceDigital Ocean, & Amazon Web Services.

The OpenShift oo-install tool is one of the simplest ways to do the installation. Let's walk through the details of deploying OpenShift on Windows Azure. We'll just deploy a single server that performs the Broker and Node functions, but the oo-install tool makes it pretty easy to install a single broker with multiple nodes on different servers.

In 1913, Henry Ford revolutionized the manufacturing industry by developing the moving assembly line and revolutionizing the mass manufacturing production.   In the decomposition of his automobile, assigning each component to individual stations, and aligning those stations into a moving assembly line, Henry Ford was able to mass produce his automobiles at a quantity and speed that was far ahead of what his competitors could do.  The new practices of automation and standardization in the manufacturing process revolutionized the industry.
