Getting Started with LinuxKit on Mac OS X with xhyve

One of the major announcements last week at DockerCon 2017 was LinuxKit, a framework for creating minimal Linux OS images purpose built for containers. Docker has been using the tools that make up LinuxKit for some time and the products derived from the tooling include Docker for Mac.


Hyperconverged: The new vendor lock-in

Lots of noise out there in the hyperconverged space. But I have to ask myself, what is all the hubbub about? Seems to me, that this is just the iteration of appliance-based infrastructure…but worse. And in this round you are putting all of your eggs in one vendors’ basket. If it were me, it w...


Connecting Client Teams with Slack

We owe a major “thank you” to the Slack team. Not only have you changed the way the we are communicating internally, now we are also doing the same with our clients and partners. This is so good, it is worth some words.

An Alternative to Docker Networking Using Service Discovery

One of the most common discussion points I hear on a day-to-day basis about Docker is the lack of networking. It comes from virtually all corners of the the tech ranks, the extolling of virtues of having dedicated IP addresses to every container, to keep “consistent” with the currently deployed ...

Pace of Innovation

Docker Tools: Machine, Swarm, and Compose

I was recently putting together an overview presentation for Docker to be given at an innovation talk for a large enterprise. While assembling my materials, I came to two realizations:

Remembering the Challenger Disaster

I can remember, like it was yesterday. We had just got to class, 8th grade Social Studies. It was a big day, we did not often get to watch TV. And for me, it was something extra special. See, I was the kid in class that always wanted to be an astronout. Spaceflight and aviation were two thin...

Running Jekyll on OpenShift

When deciding what platform I was going ot use for my blog, I considered all of the “normal” choices, like Wordpress, Blogger, etc. For some blog sites, they work brilliantly…like our company pages. Easy to setup for multiple authors, WYSIWYG (for less technical folks) and social media is well ...

Welcome! First Post

Hello, and welcome to my blog. I’ve been spending time writing for my company, Nebulaworks and have decided that it is time for me to begin writing on my own; sharing my opinion on not only technology but other things that interest me - astronomy, space, cars, well, just about anything.
