    Bringing clarity to containers by Bryan Cantrill

    At the beginning of the year, I laid down a few predictions. While I refuse on principle to engage in Stephen O'Grady-style self-flagellation, I do think it's worth revisiting the headliner prediction, namely that 2015 is the year of the container.

    Node.js and Joyent: Past, Present, and Future by Joyent Node.js and Joyent: Past, Present, and Future

    Joyent has been running Node.js in production and at scale for over 5 years. As such, we've learned production practices for designing, deploying and debugging Node.js apps and we've built container-native solutions to optimize app performance, security, and management. Experience the container-native difference!

    Microservices stack in seconds: Node.js + Docker + NoSQL by Tim Gross

    This post demonstrates how you can deploy and scale a Node.js application backed by Couchbase and load balanced with Nginx. All the components are running in multiple Docker containers on Triton, and use Containerbuddy to automate discovery and configuration. We're using Docker Compose to deploy the application and scale it across the data center on Triton.

    Dynamic DNS for Docker using Containerbuddy and CloudFlare by Tim Gross

    In a container-native project, we need to balance the desire for ephemeral infrastructure with the requirement to provide a predictable load-balanced interface with the outside world. By updating DNS records for a domain based on changes in the discovery service, we can make sure our users can reach the load-balancer for our project at all times.

    Anti-patterns for service discovery in Docker by Tim Gross

    Common patterns for microservice container deployments carry hidden assumptions that increase operational costs and put availability at risk. Let's break down the reasons why and how to build discovery for a container-native world.
