There is a lot of buzz about a “new” technology called Docker. I say “new” in quotes, because most of us greybeards should remember a technology called “containers,” circa 2004, and the arguments about which was better: virtualization or containers.

On the July third Virtualization Security Podcast, we discussed mobile security with Harry Labana, CPO of CloudVolumes, and Ben Goodman of VMware. Actually, it was not necessarily about mobile security as much as it was about security in accessing corporate data from mobile devices, regardless of device and location of data. What came out of…

Docker and VMware vSphere both allow the running of multiple applications on one physical server. However, the similarities end there.

I had the privilege of attending #ChefConf 2014 in San Francisco last week. The theme of the event was “Delivering Delight.” The Chef speakers came out pumped up. They were loud, like the heavy metal music that played in the background (see playlist here), dropping f-bombs as adjectives to emphasize how jacked up they were about…
