However, with the rise of increasingly dynamic environments, the important role service discovery plays continues to grow.

Docker Security, Hardened Containers and a Layered Strategy


Docker recently unveiled version 1.10 of its popular container technology. Security was a major focus of the release with several features designed to strengthen the security of Docker containers. According to the Docker blog,

“All the big features you’ve been asking for are now available to use: user namespacing for isolating system users, seccomp profiles for filtering syscalls, and an authorization plugin system for restricting access to Engine features.

On Demand Desktops Help Reduce Costs of Training

Leverage cloud infrastructure to support learning labs

Desktop as a Service (DaaS), or desktop virtualization, is catching on as a way to further save on CAPEX. The reality for most large organizations is that many DaaS offerings are limited as their ability to handle  workloads and the strategy must be considered on a case-by-case basis. We found just such a case: on-demand learning labs for training departments or organizations.
