Hootsuite Developer Brandon Okert has authored the first in a 2-part series about Docker from a scaling perspective. To give a better understanding of how Docker can be used, Brandon provides a direct comparison between Docker and Virtual Machines, goes over the various components and tools available, and gives insight in managing Docker in the real world. Brandon also discusses prevailing Docker Ideologies and practices (as well as common exceptions), all in preparation for Part 2 of the series which will cover building scalable services with Docker. Check out his blog post, and join the discussion!
