The AndPlus Tech Podcast
Docker, Kubernetes and the World of Containers
One of the greatest time-wasters in traditional software development is managing multiple environments and making sure they are sufficiently alike so that the software works identically on all of them. It’s all too easy for these environments to get out of sync, or for developers to lose track of all the system requirements needed to make their software work. Until recently, it was all managed manually, which meant that clients were billed for work that added no value to the final product. That’s bad for developer productivity, bad for timeline adherence, and bad for business.
The AndPlus Innovation Lab team has been exploring Kubernetes as an alternative to Docker. Tom Golden and Abdul Dremali sit down to talk about what containers are, why they matter and the direction these technologies are moving.
