28 Feb 2017 Tech Primer: Clarity On Containers [61099]
Data Center Knowledge, February 28th, 2017

"Container ecosystems from the likes of Google, Docker, CoreOS, and Joyent are easily one of the more intriguing IT innovations in the enterprise and cloud computing space today. In the past year, organizations across all major industries, from finance to e-commerce, took notice of containers as a cost efficient, portable, and convenient means to build an application. The prospects gave organizations an exciting new model to compare and contrast to virtualization.

But for all the hype, many organizations and IT professionals still struggle to understand both the technology itself and how to take advantage of its unique benefits - especially as Docker, the market leader, begins to expand the use cases for containers into the stateful architectural landscape that is common with enterprise applications. This technology primer aims to provide clarity on containers and arm you with everything you need to know to successfully leverage this technology..."

10 Jun 2015 First Look: Joyent Triton Puts Cloud Computing On A Bare-Metal Diet [43350]
InfoWorld, June 10th, 2015

"It's been more than a year since Docker began taking over the mind of every devops team in the world with the seductive promise of a special mechanism for bundling software in a lightweight collection of only the essential files. The emphasis here is on "lightweight" and "essential" because this service is redefining how light "light" can be.

Now Joyent is one of the first companies to bring Docker to the cloud marketplace by offering a service called Triton, which lets users start up a Docker container instead of a VM. In the past, Joyent ran a heavier service that started up the Docker container inside of a separate virtual machine, but now the company has put together a mechanism that juggles the containers directly on the metal. Joyent suggests that the code will run faster (generally) and the overhead will be smaller (most of the time). It certainly shows how amazing Docker can be..."

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..."
