The New Year begins with a fresh start and new ideas. If you happen to be working on a new application—or are redesigning one that you have in production—you may want to consider architecting your app to run on the cloud. To assist you with this, Rackers BK Box, Caleb Groom and Ryan Walker authored a white paper titled “Cloud Application Architecture Trends.” We invited them to our weekly Cloud Office Hours Hangout to discuss their paper and dive a little deeper into these trends. I’ve included a link to the full video at the end of this post, but here are a few highlights from the show:
For the past few years I’ve used this holiday period as a chance to do some prognostication. It’s a fun exercise – looking back at trends from the previous 12 months and trying to predict what’s next.
I am a member of the Docker special interest group at Rackspace. We recently welcomed CoreOS CTO Brandon Philips to visit us to discuss CoreOS and Docker. Brandon is no stranger to Rackspace. He is an alumnus of the Rackspace Cloud Monitoring team (my current team). Here’s a recap of some of the key points that Brandon made during the discussion.
The time has come to change the way we create, develop and ship applications. At Docker, we believe it should be quick and painless to ship application workloads across environments (dev, test and production) and hosts (laptops, data centers and clouds). Docker container technology is quickly pushing us toward that reality.
Docker Inc. recently unveiled an exciting new open source project called Libswarm designed to make the using containers in the public cloud a lot easier.
Rackspace CTO John Engates this week delivered one of the opening keynotes at DockerCon in San Francisco.
San Francisco is a city surrounded: in the morning by sparkling water, sunny weather and the sound of seagulls; in the evening by bone-chilling wind and impenetrable fog; at night by the ambient electricity of imagination and the fertile dreamscapes of shining tomorrows.
Yesterday was day two of the ZeroVM Design Summit. Day one mostly focused on the architecture and capabilities of ZeroVM itself; while day two examined integration with other technologies, particularly OpenStack Swift (the technology behind Rackspace Cloud Files).
A couple months ago we acquired the team behind ZeroVM, the lightweight open source application hypervisor. At that time we promised that more was coming soon – and now we have started to say what some of the plans are for this new technology.
