May Docker Discussion



  • I can't believe you guys are having this discussion in 2019. You do realize that virtualization and containerization have become a standard tool nowadays, right? A lot of you sound if you got stuck somewhere in 2010 technology.

    Well, seeing how unix technologies are a decade or two ahead of Linux, I guess we still got a pretty comfortable lead... 😜

    Put something other than Docker thru it's paces and then come back and talk. But most of the arguments have been made already above.

    Is it worth the overhead? That's up to you... I like tinkering with my servers, personally. Pretty soon it'll be a lost art.

    Yep. And those of us who still have a clue or two will smile with quiet confidence because we actually understand wtf is going on with our stuff.

    @evgenymagata Maybe the person who built your prefab Dockerized container knew what they were doing. Maybe "quick and dirty", management needed it yesterday and doesn't give a *#@ is the reality at hand. Maybe not.

    Different itches need different scratchin'..... By all means, enjoy your Docker but please, please, please don't fool yourself into think that it's some kind of superior master ring to rule them all, eh? Cuz until you outline your priorities and use case it's all just a religious war.

    wow
    "some kind of superior master ring"
    the admins here stuck in the 2000's are really having a weird inferiority complex in terms of docker. Its not a master ring, its not a magic supertool, its just clever, modern technology. Its a way to maintain systems with MUCH less hassle than was needed before. not everyone needs to understand the details of installing a microservice if the person that understands BEST maintains the docker and updates frequently for security and functional updates. If running a nodeBB forum is your lifes purpose, i can understand you enjoy the full install and undertanding how everything works, to the last detail. if its just another web service you are runing among 20 others, you dont give too much of a damn, you just want it to be as easily maintainable and servicable as possible.
    The religious war is started by the people hating dockers, the others just want to make their job as productive as possible.

    BTW, lets see how quickly somebody gets up a server after a linux distribution change using traditional methods vs. a server thats dockerized 😉
