"Geek Guide: Linux in the Age of Containers"

The pace of technology is accelerating and the demands on IT organizations are rapidly increasing.

Enterprises are faced with a tension between two opposing forces:

  1. Maintaining a stable, high-performance, highly available, secure and scalable computing environment.
  2. Becoming more agile to be able to deploy new, uncertain projects and technologies more quickly.
In 2014, Gartner coined the term “Bimodal IT” to refer to a model for handling those two competing demands:

Bimodal is the practice of managing two separate but coherent styles of work: one focused on predictability; the other on exploration. Mode 1 is optimized for areas that are more predictable and well-understood. It focuses on exploiting what is known, while renovating the legacy environment into a state that is fit for a digital world. Mode 2 is exploratory, experimenting to solve new problems and optimized for areas of uncertainty.

This guide examines the needs of Mode 2 and focuses on what it takes to bring new technologies into production quickly and in a massively scalable fashion.
