Boycott Docker

Sunday, February 1st, 2015

I have created campaign website. Together with other software developers we feel the huge pain with that unconvenient, network principles destroying tool. It must be really good from big cloud computing corporations point of view, who run millions and thousands of containers. But I wrote all of that from ordinary not so big company with several hundred servers. Docker, kubernetes and Mesos do not help at all. Many things are impossible to do if they do not fit in their strict architecture borders: you have to spend more time on fighting with them, In most cases it is much more easier to write own shell-scripts that will automate our job as we wish, with maximal impact for our productivity, without any cumbersome cloud-specific technologies.
