Docker has experienced exponential growth in the last two years. DockerHub downloads have gone from 100 million to 6 billion. To keep up with this growth, Docker broke its monolithic model into smaller open source components, including containerd, libnetwork, swarmkit and LinuxKit.Open sourcing these components allowed Docker and its ecosystem to collaborate on each component and make them more efficient. It also helped Docker make its own platform modular and scalable, though it also meant that Docker itself would have to pull all these components together and integrate them to create the Docker platform.That created a unique challenge for Docker.Since everything is getting containerized, it’s not just Docker that’s experiencing the pressure of using common, standard components to support and build an increasing number of specialized platforms. There are many new players who want specialized Docker editions while using the same open source components.That should not be a … [Read more...] about Why Docker created the Moby Project

With technology increasingly intertwined with all aspects of business, [email protected] can help you -- from prosumers to small businesses with fewer than five employees -- get started.When Saks Fifth Avenue agreed to stock coats and blazers made by startup Norwegian Wool, founder Michael Berkowitz needed to create a booklet to educate the big retailer's salespeople about the new line."Saks gets in brands all the time and so you need to set yourself apart," said Berkowitz, who left a career on Wall Street to start his New York-based company in 2014. "We wanted this to be good."But Norwegian Wool didn't have that kind of in-house talent, so Berkowitz decided to outsource the work to a freelance designer based overseas. "You can find really good design work using contractors," said Berkowitz, who was pleased with the results. "There are lots of them out there who just prefer to work as freelancers."And there are a lot of businesses interested in going that route.One recent study found … [Read more...] about Your next hire: Employee or independent contractor?
WASHINGTON, D.C., December 26, 2017 -- The electrical grid in the contiguous United States is a behemoth of interconnected systems. If one section fails or is sabotaged, millions of citizens could be without power. Remote villages in Alaska provide an example of how safeguards could build resilience into a larger electrical grid. These communities rely on microgrids -- small, local power stations that operate autonomously. Nine articles in the recent issue of the Journal of Renewable and Sustainable Energy, from AIP Publishing, provide the first reviews of energy technologies and costs for microgrids in Alaska. "The integration of renewable resources into microgrids is an active area of research," Erin Whitney, a researcher at the Alaska Center for Energy and Power, University of Alaska Fairbanks said. "Alaskan communities are at the forefront of thinking about integrating sustainable, local, and often renewable, energy into their power generation portfolios." Unlike the Lower 48, … [Read more...] about Alaskan microgrids offer energy resilience and independence
