VMs vs. Docker – Dan Jones in Network World

Dan Jones’ recent article in Network World “Containers vs. VMs: It comes down to state management, networking, and sprawl” responds to some specific concerns regarding possible pitfalls when implementing Docker instead of more traditional VM architectures (only in IT can something just over decade old be considered “traditional” ). Dan discusses Docker’s evolution towards parity

Docker Machine provides a nice experience for remotely provisioning and managing instances of Docker. Though Skytap doesn’t currently support a native driver for Docker Machine it doesn’t mean you’re left out in the cold. The generic driver for Docker Machine works great with Skytap! There are multiple ways to connect to VMs within Skytap.  SRA, for
