10 Apr 2017 Microsoft to acquire Deis to Help Companies Innovate with Containers [62425]
Microsoft, April 10th 2017

Scott Guthrie blogs, "Containers have been at the forefront of cloud transformation in recent years, and for good reason: Container technologies let organizations more easily build, deploy and move applications to and from the cloud. With this increase in agility and portability, containers are helping to make applications the new currency in the cloud. At Microsoft, we've seen explosive growth in both interest and deployment of containerized workloads on Azure, and we're committed to ensuring Azure is the best place to run them.

To support this vision, we're pleased to announce that Microsoft has signed an agreement to acquire Deis - a company that has been at the center of the container transformation. Deis gives developers the means to vastly improve application agility, efficiency and reliability through their Kubernetes container management technologies..."

06 Apr 2017 5 Reasons Developers Love Containers [62179]
CIO, April 6th 2017

Developers are a driving force behind the adoption of container technology in general and Docker in particular. Here's why.

"Linux containers have been around for almost a decade, but it was only with the release of Docker four years ago that large numbers of developers began to adopt the technology. Now it seems that containers are everywhere and their popularity continues to rise.

Containers have become such an important part of the IT landscape that server virtualization giants like VMware and Microsoft have had to go out of their way to accommodate them. VMware now offers a way to deploy, run and manage containers from within its vSphere virtualization infrastructure management system, while Microsoft - which has built Hyper-V server virtualization into its Windows Server product - has partnered with Docker to create Windows Server containers, and containerization support has been added to the Windows 10 kernel..."

The VAR Guy, April 3rd 2017

"By now, you probably know how popular Docker containers are with technical folks. But do you understand the business case for Docker? Do you know how containers help save companies money? If not, read on.

Docker became popular in its early days because it simplifies the work of developers and admins in important ways. Containers provide environment parity, which makes it easier to find bugs before they reach end-users. Containers also help developers to deploy software more quickly..."

29 Mar 2017 USB hotplug with LXD containers [61994]
Ubuntu, March 29th 2017

Stephane Graber writes for Ubuntu, "It can be pretty useful to pass USB devices to a container. Be that some measurement equipment in a lab or maybe more commonly, an Android phone or some IoT device that you need to interact with.

Similar to what I wrote recently about GPUs, LXD supports passing USB devices into containers. Again, similarly to the GPU case, what's actually passed into the container is a Unix character device, in this case, a /dev/bus/usb/ device node.

This restricts USB passthrough to those devices and software which use libusb to interact with them. For devices which use a kernel driver, the module should be installed and loaded on the host, and the resulting character or block device be passed to the container directly..."
