Migration from VM to Containers
As the demand in PaaS and DevOps solution is growing, there are still several adoption barriers for the owners of legacy applications hosted inside VMs. The complexity of decomposition and migration processes is very high, and application owners need to put a great deal of effort just to benefit from modern PaaS and CaaS solutions. Find what exactly motivates developers for migration to containers and how they perform this step.
Automated Traffic Distribution
Re-deployment causes application failures? To make your apps accessible to customers at any time, learn how to implement an advanced traffic routing right in the cloud. Performing “invisible” updates has never been such an easy thing for those application developers who want to remain demanded, attract new users and provide highly-available up-to-date projects.
Java and Memory Limits in Containers: LXC, Docker and OpenVZ
Are you a Java developer who is running the application inside Docker container? Then you might have experienced some negative issues with OutOfMemoryError due to incorrect JVM heap behavior in a container. The importance of real memory limits visibility and solution of the mentioned problem are described in this article.
Containers Live Migration: Behind the Scenes
The need to have more freedom in application lifecycle management leads developers and operations to new technologies like Live Migration. Within this part of our Java Guide we will unveil what is live migration of containers, how it works, and what issues regarding projects development, management and automation it can fix:
- Gain hardware maintenance without downtime
- Automate load rebalance
- Get high availability within hardware zones and data centers
- Change your cloud vendor without a pain
