eWeek, May 5th, 2016

"Q&A: Joyent CTO Bryan Cantrill says more enterprises understand that they need to innovate by supporting containers and cloud computing to avoid market disruption by competitors.

Bryan Cantrill is a busy man these days. The CTO at cloud infrastructure provider Joyent is a member of the Technical Steering Committee of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, formed last summer to promote the development and adoption of container technologies.

He also spends a lot of time on the road evangelizing containers and the rise of the developer in the cloud-native world. I caught up with Bryan following the Container Summit at Interop in Las Vegas..."

24 Mar 2015 Joyent's Docker Cloud Skips the VM Layer [41618]
Data Center Knowledge, March 24, 2015

"Docker containers, which over the past two years or so have been enjoying a lot of popularity in the world where IT operations intersect with application development, have had one disadvantage when deployed on traditional public cloud infrastructure: server virtualization.

Virtualization impedes performance of applications running in Docker containers, according to Bryan Cantrill, CTO of Joyent, a San Francisco-based cloud service provider. The company announced today a new Docker cloud architecture, which takes that virtualization layer out of the equation..."

10 Sep 2013 Happy 10th Birthday, DTrace! [32826]
From Bryan Cantrill

Bryan Cantrill posted a blog entry noting that "Ten years ago this morning (Sept 3rd) - at 10:27am local time, to be exact - DTrace was integrated. On the occasion of DTrace's fifth birthday a half-decade ago, I reflected on much of the drama of the final DTrace splashdown, but much has happend in the DTrace community in the last five years; some highlights:

  • DTrace was ported to Linux - twice

  • Brendan's DTrace book became the canonical guide to using DTrace in practice, bringing DTrace to a new generation of practitioners

  • Chris Andrews lit the way for bringing USDT to dyanamic languages with his terrific libusdt, using it to bring DTrace to node.js, bring DTrace to Lua, bring DTrace to Perl and bring DTrace to Ruby.

  • Dave Pacheco became a master of the black art of DTrace ustack helpers, and developed a DTrace ustack helper for node.js

  • I expanded DTrace in the non-global zone

  • Eric Schrock added the print action

  • We got the DTrace community together at the first DTrace unconference - dtrace.conf(08)

  • and then followed that up at an Olympiad cadence with dtrace.conf(12)

  • The International DTrace Committee will soon be selecting the host city for dtrace.conf(16)

And a bunch of other stuff that's either more esoteric...
