Now crate some Application Packages with Dockers

Ever seen those huge and conspicuous containers at shipyard which are capable of storing lots of materials and junk ready to be exported,imported and transferred. As the world is racing towards the digitalization, even the concept of Dockers have been digitalized. Learning about contemporary  Docker is, it allows to us to combine an application with all of its necessary dependent data into a standardized unit for development of software code. Simply speaking, Dockers work just like containers wrapping up a piece of application code in complete file system that contains everything which are required to support at execution level: code, system tools, system libraries , runtime utilities, GUI files – however, accessibility is a remote-level picture. This guarantees that it will always run the same, regardless of the environment it is running in. As we talk about Docker, we are looking at bigger picture. With remote level availability, these units are definitely everyone’s choice.

IBM LinuxONE : Execute everything with Linux Mainframe!

IBM on 17th August 2015 announced the launch of IBM LinuxONE Enterprise level which runs on Linux.  As we all know, Linux is known for its security and high-end flexibility, the latest one’s will definitely be cynosure.  The server variants includes LinuxONE Emperor for large enterprises and Rock hopper for mid-size businesses. LinuxONE Rockhopper can efficiently support small scale infrastructure at lower costs. IBM Mainframe is designed in a subtle way, with a capability of handling 8,000 virtual machines, and millions of active users it would be simply Uber. To be more specific, LinuxONE is capable enough to handle 30 Billions RESTful Web transactions per day.       Now, what is a RESTful transaction??! . While REST means Representational State Transfer, this is an architectural style for hypermedia networked application design; it mainly is used to build modern day web services which make things easy, with their lightweight, maintainable and compatible dimensio
