What is Mirantis Container Cloud?

Docker provides an integrated technology suite that enables development and IT operations teams to build, ship, and run distributed applications anywhere. Docker allows you to package an application with all of its dependencies into a standardized unit for software development. Docker containers wrap up a piece of software in a complete filesystem that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, anything you can install on a server. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in.

Mirantis Container Cloud is also known as Docker .

Facilitates rapid deployment and has thorough, easy to read documentation

What is our primary use case?

My experience with Docker is in helping to provide solutions for my clients. Specifically, this involves continuous integration and continuous deployment for my clients' workflow.

Pros and Cons

  • "Docker is very helpful for taking the code from development and applying it to the end user."
  • "It would be very nice to have a GUI that can be used by any administrator, and not just people who have experience with Docker."

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing this solution is to read the documentation very carefully. That can give a lot of relief when the client needs a solution. If Docker had a graphical user interface then it would be a perfect solution. I would rate this solution and eight out of ten.

A faster and flexible solution with excellent support systems

What is our primary use case?

Our primary use case for this solution is for electronic commerce.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable aspect is the excellent support. In addition, the billing system is really easy to understand."
  • "Sometimes the basic support is a bit difficult if you have a firewall and cloud servers behind the firewall and then try to implement the backup solution, it is a bit difficult to do by yourself."

What other advice do I have?

My advice is in regards to the security. Many of my customers do not care enough about security, they have a disbelief that once you are in a cloud, you are automatically secure. This sis not the case at all. You need to understand that nothing is guaranteed if you do not follow the right rules. You need proper monitoring tools to keep the work-site safe and secure. It may cost the customer more, but it is worth every penny.

The most valuable is Docker images that allows you to build your own image and upload it to a repository

What is our primary use case?

Using Docker for most of the environments that I worked for. As an expert, I am working on different environments each time depending on the customer requirements. Development, staging, pre-production and production, each one of them having at least 25 servers implemented on different solutions sometimes like VMware, AWS, Azure and Oracle Cloud. Docker allows me to automate everything for these environments which saves a lot of time to sync the environment with each other and keep them up to date anytime.

What other advice do I have?

I recommended the tech guys that haven't used it so far, or if their company is still using the transitional infrastructure, they should give it a try.

The most valuable feature is creating your own image.

What other advice do I have?

I think that Docker is the best among its peers. Creating, downloading, uploading, and sharing images is faster than doing the same on something like Vagrant. When using Docker on the Mac, I only used it to create a local development environment. I also have a Docker installation running in production on a production environment being used as the backend for an iOS app. I would advise people to take the Lynda course on Docker. In my experience, the documentation only becomes useful after understanding the basics and the general idea.

Originally posted at http://technologyconversations.com/2015/08/26/configuration-management-in-the-docker-world/ Anyone managing more than a few servers can confirm that doing such a task manually is a waste of time and risky. Configuration management (CM) exists for a long time and there is no single reason I can think of why one would not use one of the tools. The question is not whether to adopt one of them but which one to choose. Those that already embraced one or the other and invested a lot of time and money will probably argue that the best tool is the one they chose. As things usually go, the choices change over time and the reasons for one over the other might not be the same today as they were yesterday. In most cases, choices are not based on available options but by the…
