Yo dawg, I have a question; I have two tabs open to developer.rackspace.com and both posts contain multiple "image macro" type memes and phrases such as "I'm going to ride the command line like a cowboy". Do y'all really talk like that or do you just assume everyone else does? I'm 31 and love me some internet pablum but I don't want to see it everywhere. Sometimes the internet really is serious business, right?

On topic, I've been spending some time looking at Docker this morning because there seems to be a lot of buzz around it. I am winding this exploration down for the moment because I am discovering that for all the talk about how easy and fast Docker makes things, the list of what you can do with it today amounts to:

- Postgresql - redis - mysql, apache and sshd Wordpress stack - nginx, php and Wordpress

[sic]

So, right now aside from the dubious differentiator of being able to spin up an SSD-hosted WordPress instance in 78 seconds, Docker doesn't seem to be very compelling. I will certainly keep an eye on it though.




The tone and images were all me - and I definitely pushed the edges here (I was aiming for fun) - my previous post while having a little bit of fun, stayed on topic:

As for your docker thoughts - I'll let the docker team address those more fully.


Docker provides a container for simplified virtualization. You can put anything in it you want.

Docker is a tool that you can use to package and deploy your own apps as well.
