Concurrent with our launch of Triton, our next-generation cloud infrastructure management platform, we're expanding access to the preview of Triton Elastic Container Service for Docker
In identifying the seven characteristics of container-native infrastructure, I knew many of them would need a demonstration.
Container-native infrastructure elevates containers as first-class citizens, while other infrastructures relegate containers to second-class status or worse.
Docker and containers are transforming how we architect, package and deploy modern applications.
For Docker to truly become the revolutionary technology it promises to be, the Docker Ops experience needs to become as simple as the Docker Dev experience.
This post provides instructions on how you can get an early preview of Joyent's next generation Docker service by running the alpha code on your laptop or lab hardware.
As a developer, Dockerizing an app is a convenient way of ensuring the software runs the same way everywhere it's used.
Node.js provides the richest postmortem debugging facilities of just about any dynamic language.
This morning we — along with several prominent members of the Node.js community — announced our intent to form the Node.js Foundation.
The difference between SmartDataCenter and OpenStack mirrors the difference between the expectations for OpenStack and the reality that Randy outlines: where OpenStack is accommodating of many different visions for the cloud, SmartDataCenter is deliberately opinionated.
Fifteen years ago, I initiated a time-honored tradition among my colleagues in kernel development at Sun: shortly after the first of every year, we would get together at our favorite local restaurant to form predictions for the coming year.
While Docker has existed since 2013, 2014 was indisputably the year in which it transcended from an interesting project to a transformative technology—a shift which had profound ramifications for us at Joyent.
Given what I’ve seen the Joyent product and engineering team produce over the past several months (and years), I am confident that we are well on our way to truly becoming the best place to run Docker.
When we at Joyent first took apart Docker, the robust API came as a pleasant surprise.
You may have seen that we recently open sourced SmartDataCenter and Manta. Because Joyent pioneered the use of infrastructure containers, you would be forgiven for asking the question: does this mean that SDC somehow competes with Docker?
