Today’s workloads require a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of recent developments, including containers and Docker (or other packaging methods), distributed resource management, and DevOps tool chains and processes. The resulting infrastructure and management framework must be optimized for distributed, scalable applications, work with a wide variety of open source packages, and provide a universally understandable interface for developers and administrators worldwide.
This is the keynote I gave at the SDI Summit in Santa Clara on December 2, 2015. It discussions the evolution from essentially server-centric infrastructure to a more dynamic containerized one. I'll discuss portions of this presentation in greater detail in future posts.
