What Is A Container Scheduler?

Posted on: 12/19/2017

isolated and immutable. Isolation provides reliability. Isolation helps with networking and volume management. It avoids conflicts. It allows us to deploy anything, anywhere, without worrying whether that something will clash with other processes running on the same server. Schedulers, combined with containers and virtual machines, provide the ultimate cluster management nirvana. That will change in the future but, for now, container schedulers are the top of the engineering accomplishments. They allow us to combine the developer’s necessity for rapid and frequent deployments with sysadmin’s goals for stability and reproducibility. And that leads us to Kubernetes…...

Blueprint Of A Self-Sufficient Docker Cluster

Posted on: 11/15/2017

The article that follows is an extract from the last chapter of The DevOps 2.2 Toolkit: Self-Sufficient Docker Clusters book. It provides a good summary into the processes and tools we explored in the quest to build a self-sufficient cluster that can (mostly) operate without humans. We split the tasks that a self-sufficient system should…...
