CoreOS Takes a Swipe at Docker By JDH If watching your in-laws awkwardly bicker on Thanksgiving weekend wasn't enough for you, this Docker vs. Rocket thing feels like a full-blown go in the Octagon. For context, CoreOS announced on Monday that they don't agree with the direction Docker is headed, and are creating their own container runtime called Rocket. They cite less-than-stellar security, speed, and overcomplexity as reasons to compete with Docker, and decided to take the matter into their own hands. The kickoff blog post, which uses a good bit of stern language (in the context of a product introduction anyway), says Docker's security model is "broken" and other bits are "fundamentally flawed." CoreOS intends to differentiate Rocket by keeping their container model simple and allowing users to avoid the "baggage" of Docker, while providing some novel security... (more)

Chopping Up the Can By @ScriptRock | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Chopping Up the Can: How to Get More Done By Greg Pollock Today, DevOps is the latest and greatest in making work efficient. Before that, Agile called on us to rework our development process. If we keep going back we eventually reach Frederick Winslow Taylor and the birth of scientific work management. Taylor famously (or infamously) measured the time needed for every action in a production process. While degrading for workers, it was also effective. Taylor was able to pay higher wages because he made workers more efficient. IT workers can't be "Taylorized"-they need to make deci... (more)

Integrating Security into #DevOps By @ScriptRock | @DevOpsSummit

Three Steps for Integrating Security into DevOps The fate of CSO John in The Phoenix Project is a good parable for illustrating the dynamic and often conflicted relationship between Security and IT Operations. Security can either become a separate, obscure, and increasingly irrelevant group that everyone else resents-sounds pretty good, huh?-or it can be integrated into broader framework of the development cycle. Security John goes through a mental breakdown before finally understanding how to adapt and survive, but it doesn't have to be that hard. Security and DevOps Before the... (more)
