Docker has been flying high for over 20 months. It’s totally evident that Docker was on its ways to becoming the existing standard for container technology, the steaming thing in cloud computing in 2014.

All applications have their own dependencies, which include both software and hardware resources. Docker containers bring numerous unknown tags to the chart as compared to existing technologies in use.
Docker containers can easily be compared to a directory. A Docker container holds everything that is required for an application to run including its dependencies and can be started, stopped, moved and deleted at will. When containers are activated they use Linux kernel namespaces. Each container operates in isolation from the server apart from networking and storage. Each container is created from a Docker image and one can have multiple containers running, depending upon the server hardware capacity. Docker containers are the run component of Docker.

Curious case of our customer
One our customer recently had his Amazon AWS account hacked. I am reproducing the conversation I had with my customer. I am writing this post with my customer’s permission to help others falling prey to the hackers like one of our customers did.
Mark, client representative recounts, “Online security didn’t bother me too much until I signed up to Amazon AWS, then my problems started. I was amazed when hackers raided my credit card of $600 in charges in just eight hours. I was dumbfounded, how could such devastation occur in just eight hours? This was an account on which I hadn’t even spent any money yet.”
