Machine to Container (M2C) Teleports Existing Enterprise Apps to the Cloud It's been a busy time for tech's ongoing infatuation with containers. Amazon just announced EC2 Container Registry to simply container management. The new Azure container service taps into Microsoft's partnership with Docker and Mesosphere. You know when there's a standard for containers on the table there's money on the table, too. Everyone is talking containers because they reduce a ton of development-related challenges and make it much easier to move across  production and testing environments and clouds. Containers are the technology that, many believe, deliver on the long-promised portability in the cloud to avoid vendor lock-in, and put developers, system administrators and their enterprises in the driver's seat.

Windows Server 2003 End of Support: An Opportunity to Move to the Cloud

On July 14, 2015 Windows Server (WS) 2003 will reach the end of extended support. This means no more patches or security fixes without a custom support agreement in place. The security and uptime implications of your applications are about to be refactored in a dramatic way. Many compliance requirements, especially in regulated industries, state that applications have to run on a supported Operating System (OS).
