I am new to docker but really like the concept of it.
We are currently using Vmware images with configured infrastructure for tests during development.
The developers machines are Win7 or Win8.1 and the Vmware guest OS is Win7.
The main issue of this is that it’s SO heavy…huge image where most of it is on guest OS and then require a lot of RAM to run. We also have a approx 50 developers using this
So discovered Docker and finds it very interesting as a potential better solution but too new to it to know for sure
The need I have for this is to run a message broker but we also have dependencies to use a messaging platform (message queue). The products is from IBM and is WebSphere Message Broker and WebSphere MQ. I have seen some IBM products in the docker space but not this type of configuration.
So therefore some questions…
- Is it good to run several applications inside the same docker image?
- Do you have any experience/tips with these IBM productions on Docker?
