Migrating to Docker: The Final Results

In the sixth and final part of our series on migrating the entire RightScale platform to Docker, we explain how we were able to achieve our dual goals of accelerating development and saving (a lot) of money.Read more

Announcing Docker Container Management in RightScale

Docker containers provide a new, portable approach to packaging and deploying services and applications. They are being deployed alongside traditional applications in cloud environments, virtual servers, and, increasingly, on bare-metal servers. Many applications will combine containers, traditional VMs, and other external services. As a result, enterprise IT teams are seeking to manage...Read more

Migrating to Docker: Halfway There

In the fourth update in our series on migrating the entire RightScale platform to Docker, we explain why designing a structured process to organize, store, and pass inputs will help us meet our goals of reusing Docker images across our set of use cases.Read more

Migrating to Docker: Barely Controlled Chaos

In the third update on our progress with migrating the entire RightScale platform to Docker, we share how we codified standards and conventions between Dev and Ops to ensure consistency and a symmetrical knowledge exchange.Read more

Migrating to Docker: Getting the Flywheel Turning

In the second article in a series on why we are going all in and migrating the entire RightScale platform to Docker, we share our “Docker Bible” on how we are bootstrapping the entire engineering team to deliver quickly while avoiding wasted time and effort.Read more

Docker vs. VMs? Combining Both for Cloud Portability Nirvana

Docker and container technology in general is very interesting to us because it promises to help simplify cloud portability — that is, how to run the same application in different clouds — as well as some aspects of configuration management. We put Docker to the test to determine if containers do indeed make it easier to port applications across clouds.Read more
