Containers are currently experiencing a rebirth, and part of that is due to the growth of cloud computing.containers
Benchmarking pre-production and production OpenStack clouds is not a trivial task. While it's important to find your cloud’s limits, you don't want to actually damage your cloud.benchmarkingRally
With the Ironic API, you get the benefits of both bare metal performance and self-service resource provisioning by booting Hadoop clusters with Sahara on bare metal servers in OpenStack,bare metalhadoopsahara
Big Blue is announcing developerWorks Recipes, showing developers how to create applications that work with devices. One place you can try out all of that good stuff is on IBM Bluemix.bluemixibm
Developing a plugin for OpenStack is a great way to incorporate new functionality, and enabling the plugin with Fuel simplifies both deployment and management.
With the 6.1 release of Mirantis OpenStack, the configurations for operating system, OpenStack, and user definable custom repositories are exposed through the Fuel UI.
If Heat defines a point-in-time configuration for the infrastructure, how does one deploy an application so “it just runs, dammit”? What’s the OpenStack equivalent of "docker pull"?DevOpsdockerMurano
Blue Box and Piston get acquired by IBM and Cisco, HP expands its CloudSystem, and Canonical works with Cloudbase to bring multi-hypervisor support to Hyper-V.blue boxCiscoEMCHPibmNewsletterpiston

Assigning network permissions to an app, OS compatibility, library and service dependencies, data persistence rules, registry entries and all kinds of other parameters critical to making it work right -- the first time and every time -- is a headache. Sounds like a win for OpenStack and DevOps.commentarycommentary_dfishmanDevOps
