Computer Hardware - High Spec Computing

If you are looking specific version of hardware and software for a short duration, and you do not want to purchase hardware and software, you can buy the virtual instance on the Amazon EC2 cloud.

I regularly use the virtual instances and when done, switch it off. So pay only for the duration I use.

Docker container for OSS

This is a fantastic open source project. Docker container is a open source container for any x86 hardware and Linux kernel. It can be used to wrap Java apps, create and automate test environments, build private PaaS environments.It is build once and run anywhere including cloud environments, VMs, laptops, etc

Docker has a great eco system built around it.

Still to explore this new technology, but is very promising in the OSS space.

Thanks
