One of the great advantages of using containers [1] is that it brings flexibility to you deployments. You can have a container configured with everything you need and move it around to be executed where you want, which is a time saving approach (and reminds me of the Java’s WORA [2]: write once, run anywhere).… Continue reading docker: creating multi-arch images

Working daily with Docker and Kubernetes and several workloads written in GO is a very common task for me. Likewise, configuring a development environment on brand new VMs. To make this process easier, I wrote a simple script that automatically downloads and install the latest version of Go for Linux for x86_64, ppc64le and s390x… Continue reading linux: configuring your Go development environment

ppc64le: Minio on Power

Minio is a high performance distributed object storage server, designed for large-scale private cloud infrastructure. Recently, while investigating alternatives to replace S3 on a Travis CI Enterprise setup I got Minio as an option. However, Minio wasn’t ported to Power, so my first step was to port it (which was very easy I would say).… Continue reading ppc64le: Minio on Power

ppc64le: creating a Docker image for travis-build on ppc64le

Travis Build is a library that¬†Travis Workers¬†use to generate a shell based build script which is then uploaded to the VMs using SSH and executed, with the resulting output streamed back to Travis. In worker to use it on ppc64le it is necessary to make some adjustments in the Dockerfile so the right packages are… Continue reading ppc64le: creating a Docker image for travis-build on ppc64le
