Earlier this year Joyent introduced our Docker service that runs Docker containers in the cloud on bare metal, with no need to setup or manage clusters of VMs.
It’s pretty mind blowing for most folks, so I’ve been blogging about how it works:
- You asked for a bigger boat
- The seven characteristics of container-native infrastructure
- Docker bake-off: AWS vs Joyent
- Undestanding Triton containers
The software that powers our cloud and our Docker service is open source and open for downloads and contributions in GitHub. Many of our customers use Triton to power their own data centers.
Today I published a blog post that details how to get up and running with Triton on your own hardware.
