Docker Cloudcasting with Brian Gracely

Cloud computing was something much different in 2011, when Brian Gracely and Aaron Delp started The Cloudcast, a podcast I listen to on a regular basis. The Cloudcast features technical discussions about cloud infrastructure technology, and one of the most recent shows was a monologue by Brian Gracely where he explained his perspective on the industry rumblings about a Docker fork.

The utility of a container for so many different purposes leads to different organizations having differing preferences for what use case is optimized for. The impression that I took away from this conversation, as well as the next episode that will air with Joe Beda, is that the diverse opinions and products in the container and orchestration ecosystem is quite healthy.

Brian does a great job explaining his perspective on The Cloudcast, and he discusses his beliefs further in this episode.
