CoreOS CEO: Containers are just the beginning
Containers are revolutionizing enterprise IT in much the way smartphones have transformed the world of consumer technology, but there’s still much more to come.
That’s according to Alex Polvi, CEO of Linux server vendor CoreOS, which has set its sights on improving Internet security.
Too many companies today operate their data centers as if on egg shells, because “any little change can break things,” Polvi explained. That makes it hard to keep software updated and secure.
In general, companies need what Polvi calls “Google infrastructure for everyone else,” or GIFEE. Essentially, he’s referring to the way hyperscale companies like Google and Facebook operate, with infrastructures designed for maximum robustness, scalability, security and reliability.
