Docker users from Argentina to France have two things in common: an interest in the potential of IT containers and a willingness to share the good, bad and ugly of implementing Docker. Docker is synonymous with containers, which isolate apps with virtualization above the operating system level on a server or cloud instance. Docker, while a relatively young company, is experiencing rampant adoption among developers and IT administrators. Docker users can package applications into containers and port those containers around from servers in a private data center to public cloud instances, enabling hybrid cloud, a DevOps methodology and more flexibility in the IT infrastructure than server-level virtualization alone. With all the potential and possibilities of Docker, it is not without issues. As seen in the tweets below, Docker users report difficult installs, failed builds and other frustrations. #Docker...excellent tool for isolate apps and wiring them — Martín J.

Features in this issue
Some organizations rush into a cloud migration, assuming cost savings are a guarantee. But not all applications are meant for the public cloud, and moving them may cost you more.
Docker adopters from every corner of the global are sharing their opinions of the containerization platform. See what they have to say about installs, resource control and enabling technologies.
With continuous delivery, good enough makes things better for business. Changing to this delivery model doesn't alleviate all app problems, but the right implementation means fewer of them.
Start-ups are breathing new life into the DBMS market, as organizations look to manage unstructured data from social media, big data and the internet of things.
Columns in this issue
Infrastructure that supports big data comes from both the cloud and clusters. Enterprises can mix and match these seven infrastructure choices to meet their needs.
Future IT infrastructure will be so abstracted from the applications using it that, while always a misnomer, serverless computing will be a reality.
