lecture: How to build your own cloud while staying in business
While you're reading this, two new Docker PaaS have launched and one existing is shutting down. Doing infrastructure is hard. Doing infrastructure is fun. Maybe it was never harder and more fun then these days. We want to share our personal experiences of how to keep it on the fun side and still take care of the hard things.
We're deeply sorry if you decided to deploy a new product in 2016. Not only are systems getting more and more complex, but you're spoiled by the choice between oodles of infrastructure solutions. But do not fear as Docker is here. Containerization set out to redeem you from all your ops hassle. But since there are still minor inconveniences like Networking, Service Discovery, Persistence or even Security to be taken care of, your job isn't done with containerizing everything. All of the above are fundamental architectural decisions you shouldn't approach reckless.
While Hashicorp tools are no silver bullet, they allow for pragmatic solutions while you still remain at the wheel. We want to show you how to set up an infrastructure suited for modern software needs.
