You can spin up a Docker container in a few seconds. A quick “docker run” command, and voila, your shiny new app is online. But this simplicity often leads to a performance bottleneck – High Disk Space usage.
Docker focuses on fast container deployment, and doesn’t focus much on disk space management. That’s why manual intervention is required to manage disk space in Docker machines. (more…)
WordPress customization and plugin development is a common task we perform in our custom software development services. A typical WordPress development workflow starts with setting up development environment to uploading the bug-free code to the live website.
The WordPress environment that we setup, can vary with each project requirement. The version, features, plugins, web applications, content, etc. would change depending on the business. (more…)
Docker systems can be used for a wide range of applications, from setting up development environments to hosting web instances.
Live Docker containers that crash often can end up ruining their purpose. As a result, a major concern faced by Docker providers is ensuring the container uptime.
Maintaining adequate disk space is a crucial task we perform in our outsourced server management services. Lack of free space can often lead to server crashes.
In Docker machines, ‘/var/lib/docker’ is the directory where the Docker images and the container data are stored by default, when Docker is installed: (more…)
In our previous post on configuring ‘Container as a Service’ in oVirt, we discussed how we deployed a scalable Docker infrastructure for application developers. Our first phase of implementation was focused on creating Docker containers within VMs.
The next stage was setting up a management software that enabled app developers to create, scale and delete the Docker containers. We used an open source application called Docker Swarm for this purpose. (more…)
2015 State of the Cloud Survey showed that adoption of Docker technology was a rising trend, with around 48% DevOps companies using it. Docker is an open source project that package applications and run-time binaries into Linux containers. With Docker, developers can define project environments and deploy their apps quickly. (more…)
