Once you have OpenStack up & running, what are the next steps to take? Container management platforms. We love all OpenStack flavours!
Why do we need orchestration platforms? Simply putting your applications into containers probably won't create a phenomenal shift in the way your organisation operates unless you also change how you deploy and manage those containers. There are plenty of possibilities in building your own Docker container through the use eg. of Docker Swarm; Consul; NFS or even by your HA-proxy where you can set up your own load balancers. A lot of choices to be made, but which way is the best for you?
Linux containers? What are they & how can you start with Docker, Kubernetes, Rancher? Need help in container management and your orchestration platform?
Recently we have started up our partnership with Rancher Labs. Rancher is a complete container management platform. Containers make software development easier, enabling you to write code faster and run it better. However, running containers in production can be hard.
Rancher makes it easy to deploy and run containers in production on any infrastructure.
