Containers, what they're good for, debated here
Piston founder, CTO Joshua McKenty summarizes pros, cons of Docker containers in a set of slides, liink below in his perceptive comments. Thanks for additional light shed by Jonathan Feldman, CIO of City of Ashville, N.C., and Joe Emison, CTO of BuildFax in discussion below. Joe points out drawbacks of containers, says they favor systems admin over developers. I still lean in, Joe. Thanks to Rich Wolski, founder, CTO, Eucalyptus, who got this debate going with points on strengths/weaknesses of virfual machines vs. containers. Rich gives tip of hat to remarks by CTO Brian Stevens at Red Hat Summit, concluded Thursday. Enomaly founder in Toronto, Reuven Cohen, not too impressed with containers; he's now top tech advocate, Citrix. Glad to see TeaPartyCitizen join in and don't forget Andrew Binstock, editor of Dr. Dobb's, all below. I know there are others who want to join this debate, please do so.
