Build a serverless framework at home: Go on, bit of open sourcey hijinx won't hurt

Seduced by serverless functions? Lured by Amazon's Lambda? If so, why not build a serverless framework at home?

Contain yourself – literally. You can't avoid Docker, K8s for long

Comment Do you remember those guys that invented virtualization, founded a company, got rich and lived happily ever after, remembered fondly by all? Well, that’s almost the story of VMware. But we might see a different story with some of the people behind Docker. For several years, Docker has been a very important technology for my …

A print button? Mmkay. Let's explore WHY you need me to add that

With all our attention on the Morlocks – down there with the whirring gears of Kubernetes and steaming clouds – it's easy to lose track of the Eloi: those concierges of productivity that smooth out the rough, upper crust of The Stack to make sure your software is actually usable. The trend now is to call this layer "design", …

Cisco throws everything it has at containers, hybrid cloud

Cisco has decided to throw everything it has at containers by releasing its very own “Container Platform”. At first blush the Platform isn’t much more than Kubernetes, and Cisco doesn’t claim that it can do much more than anyone else’s packaging of the Google-derived container-manager. The important bit is the integration …

Feel like a little kid in the container world? Welcome to the club

Hang around Twitter long enough and you'll need a double helping of antidepressants to cope with the obvious truth that you are WAY BEHIND ON THE CONTAINER REVOLUTION. Microservices? Everyone else is doing them. Kubernetes? Most CTOs are naming their kids after the popular project. And you? Well, you're still fiddling with VMs, …

2017 – the year of containers! It wasn't? Oops. Maybe next year

2017 was a big year for containers. One of the biggest container events came from the Linux Foundation, and it was – by its own admission – one of the most boring. The Foundation’s Open Containers Initiative (OCI) finally dropped two specifications that standardise how containers operate at a low level. Chris Aniszczyk, vice …

Take Kubernetes, and bish bash bosh, you've got Container Runtime

Announcing its updated and renamed Kubernetes and BOSH (Kubo) project as Container Runtime (CFCR) last month, Cloud Foundry said the project would give users greater "choice".

Who's that cuddling up in the container... *squints* Wow you're getting along well

The cloud is a highly competitive arena, where cloud providers jostle for market share. We know of Microsoft's long haul against Amazon’s AWS, but of late Oracle has cranked up the noise against Jeff Bezos' market leader while trying to break past Google and IBM. And yet, what we imagine to be bitter rivals team up – as when …
