Companies that need to deliver applications quickly and efficiently — and today, what company doesnrsquo;t need to do this?— are turning to Linux containers. What they are also finding is that once they get past the “letrsquo;s see how these container things workrdquo; stage, they are going to end up with a lot of containers running in a lot of different places.Linux container technology is not new, but it has increased in popularity due to factors including the innovative packaging format (now Open Container Initiative (OCI) format) originally invented by Docker, as well as the competitive requirement for continual development and deployment of new applications.
In a May 2016 Forrester study commissioned by Red Hat, 48 percent of respondents said they were already using containers in development, a figure projected to rise to 53 percent this year. Only one-fifth of respondents said that they wouldnrsquo;t leverage containers in development processes in 2017.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here

With the newest Docker Enterprise Edition, you can now have Docker clusters composed of nodes running different operating systems.Three of the key OSes supported by Docker -- Windows, Linux, and IBM System Z -- can run applications side by side in the same cluster, all orchestrated by a common mechanism.[ What is Docker? Linux containers explained. | Go deeper with InfoWorldrsquo;s beginnerrsquo;s guide to Docker. ]Clustering apps across multiple OSes in Docker requires that you build per-OS images for each app.

But those apps, when running on both Windows and Linux, can be linked to run in concert via Docker's overlay networking.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
We also get a look at System76’s in-house OS (with in-house gear on the horizon).
Like the various Linux server and desktop distributions, the container-oriented Linux distributions mix and match various projects and components to construct a complete container infrastructure.

These distros generally combine a minimal OS kernel, an ...

Microsoftrsquo;s .Net Core 2.0, an upgrade to the companyrsquo;s open source, cross-platform implementation of .Net, is becoming available today.

The new release includes improvements intended to make .Net Core easier to use.
It also conforms to the .Net Standard 2.0 specification designed to facilitate code sharing among .Net Framework, .Net Core, and Xamarin.Thenbsp;.Net Core frameworknbsp;can be used to build web applications and services that run on Windows, MacOS, or Linux.

Ease of use improvements in .Net Core 2.0 include making the dotnet restore command (used to install project dependencies and other tasks) implicit for commands like run, build, and publish that require it.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
The Cloud Native Computing Foundation, created to promote and develop technologies like Kubernetes and core components of the container ecosystem spawned by Docker, welcomed Amazon Web Services into its fold this week.Amazon comes on board as a top-level ("platinum") member.

According to Amazon'snbsp;Adrian Cockcroft, now a member of the CNCF's governing board, containers are the big reason Amazon's getting involved -- at least, initially.Amazon already has a major investment in container tech.
Itsnbsp;ECSnbsp;service provides managed containers that run via machine images deployed on clusters of EC2 instances.
Its older Elastic Beanstalk service can deploy and manage Docker containers, although they're scaled and managed via Amazon's own internal stack, not the CNCF's Kubernetes.

And users can always manually deploy Docker Enterprise Edition, a container-centric Linux such as CoreOS, or a Kubernetes cluster on EC2.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
JetBrainsrsquo;s Rider, a cross-platform IDE that could serve as a rival to Microsoftrsquo;s own well-established Visual Studio IDE, is now generally available.The commercially licensed Rider can be used on Windows, MacOS, and Linux systems, letting developers build applications based on ASP.Net, .Net Core, .Net Framework, Xamarin, or Unity. Rider puts JetBrainsrsquo; ReSharper .Net support in the shell of the companyrsquo;s IntelliJ Idea IDE and adds the WebStorm JavaScript IDE and DataGrip database management tool. ReSharper previously was packaged as a Visual Studio extension for code analysis and instant fixes.To read this article in full or to leave a comment, please click here
