Container-Based Database Platforms: Fueling DevOps

Source- Database systems traditionally have relied on rather complex, OS-specific clustering technology to provide high availability. Depending on vendor and configuration, these technologies included shared storage devices, transaction-based replication, storage replication or some combination thereof. In many cases, these configurations required complex storage and network configuration supported by multiple teams at significant cost. As the use of virtualization became more widespread, virtual machines offered a degree of high availability, and many hypervisors offered some form of disaster recovery provided

How to Make Docker Containers Faster and Improve Performance

Source:- Your Docker containers are already fast, at least compared to virtual machines. But what if you want to make them even faster? Here are strategies for optimizing Docker container speed and performance. If you’re using Docker, it’s probably at least partly because you want your applications to start and run faster. Out of the box, containers offer significant performance advantages over infrastructure built using virtual machines. Making Containers Even Faster But why settle for the speed containers give

20 Docker security tools compared

Source:- There are quite a few Docker security tools in the ecosystem, how do they compare? This is a comprehensive list of Docker security tools that can help you implement some of the container security best practices. Is Docker insecure? Not at all. Actually features like process isolation with user namespaces, resource encapsulation with cgroups, immutable images and shipping the minimal software and dependencies reduce the attack vector providing a great deal of protection. But, is there anything else we
