It’s been a banner year for container awareness and adoption so we wanted to recap 2015. For RackN, container acceleration is near to our heart because we both enable and use them in fundamental ways. Look for Rob’s 2016 predictions on his blog.
The RackN team has truly deep and broad experience with containers in practical use. In the summer, we delivered multiple container orchestration workloads including Docker Swarm, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry, StackEngine and others. In the fall, we refactored Digital Rebar to use Docker Compose with dramatic results. And we’ve been using Docker since 2013 (yes, “way back”) for ops provisioning and development.
To make it easier to review that experience, we are consolidating a list of our container related posts for 2015.
