Getting Started with Linux-Based Containers for Labs

When to Choose Linux-Based Containers for Your Lab and How to Get Started

Containers are a remarkably simple way to deploy and scale applications. Container management services, such as Docker and Kubernetes, have revolutionized the way applications are built, deployed and managed.

That makes containers a natural next step to extend Learn on Demand’s expansive ecosystem of lab platform choices in Lab on Demand.

A New Fabric Choice in Lab on Demand

Adding Linux-based containers to Lab on Demand means we now offer eight fabrics on which you can build your hands-on lab:

  1. VMware for virtual machines.

Codify uses IT Pro Challenges to accelerate its recruitment process

Codify’s mission is to help organizations move to cloud-based solutions, while arming those organizations with the understanding of their unique business drivers.

That means having the right people on Codify’s team is crucial to its success.

In the past, finding job candidates was a grueling process. It typically involved starting with about 30 people who had been screened for a culture fit by a recruiter, narrowing those down to three to five people, and then finally selecting someone to join the team.
