Hey, developers! Do you care about using the best practices to apply your application to the cloud? If so then you should be using The 12-factor App, which is a methodology for building software-as-a-service. Today I like to talk about the 12-factor App, which I had presented to a group at the Red Hat Summit last month.

Getting up and running with local development for Red Hat Mobile Application requires that you run MongoDB and Redis locally. Doing so isn’t particularly difficult if you follow online guides, but it would be much more straightforward if you could just get these pieces of software up and running in a single command and not need to worry about versioning, creating data directories, setting permissions, and compiling some things such as Redis from source. It would be even better if you could easily switch versions. This is where containers shine.
In the next few paragraphs, we’ll demonstrate how you can run any almost any version of MongoDB and Redis with a single command on a machine that has the Docker service installed.
NOTE: This is not an extensive Docker CLI tutorial; just enough to learn basic commands that will allow you to get MongoDB and Redis up and running easily.

Last week, our IoT partner, Eurotech, announced some important milestones–the availability of their Everyware Software Framework (ESF) 5.0 and a preview of a new version of their Everyware Cloud 4.2. These milestones are important examples of open source IoT innovation, through both Eurotech’s commercial offerings and the upstream open source communities that contribute to them.

Recently, the focus on the continuous delivery of value has created a lot of interest in microservices, CI/CD, and containers. The idea is that microservices are small and well defined enough to enable rapid innovation, automated testing, and frequent deployments with minimal risk. This is made possible by adopting continuous integration and continuous delivery pipelines. CI/CD requires the ability to quickly, easily, reliably, and automatically create and tear down complete execution environments. Linux containers address this need by creating lightweight, portable, and isolated runtime environments. It becomes easy to reach the conclusion that the path to digital transform is continuous value delivery via microservices-based on containers and CI/CD.

Yesterday, at Red Hat Summit, Red Hat announced OpenShift.io. OpenShift.io is the next generation OpenShift platform, based on OpenShift 3, for building and running applications in the cloud. It gives you complete control of your application’s lifecycle, from build to production– regardless of deploying from source or running a pre-built container.

Today’s announcement of Red Hat OpenShift.io was followed by a full day of developer toolset Summit sessions. These were presented by the OpenShift.io product development team and covered some truly amazing OpenShift.io features. While there are too many features to cover in a single blog post, these were my top 7 items.
