Containers are rising in popularity within the cloud computing and virtualization industry as companies believe they can fit a lot more applications into a single logical server than on a virtual machine hypervisor.
Grand Rapids, Michigan (PRWEB) September 09, 2015
Fox Technologies, Inc., a portfolio company of Parallax Capital Partners, will present a webinar discussing the challenges that organizations face when implementing Linux container production operations. David Dingwall, Fox Technologies’ business development strategist for the EMEA and APAC regions, will present the webinar.
"Containers are rising in popularity within the cloud computing and virtualization industry as companies believe they can fit a lot more applications into a single logical server than on a virtual machine hypervisor,” says Dingwall. “But there are definitely security implications to consider, and production operations lessons to be learned from other platforms.”
Application containerization — and bringing on the supporting technology in Linux to make it work — has made rapid progress over the last 2-3 years. Cloud scale solutions using Container based technology is still relatively new, and there are serious security pitfalls to consider and mitigate early on when first moving away from a virtual machine based infrastructure.
In this 30-minute webinar, Dingwall will also focus on the security strengths and limitations of implementing Linux container production operations. He will provide strategies to get a new Linux container-based solution through its first Audit.
The live webinar will be held on September 17, 2015, at 1:00 pm ET. To register, go to https://attendee.gotowebinar.com/register/4561579443321753602
