How to interconnect cloud services to practically any device, the easy way!
I have been playing around with Weave and Docker the past few months and recently wanted to see if I could bind the cloud platform we operate at work with my Raspberry Pi I use at home. Ideally this Pi is not bound to my home at all and be used wherever I can get it to connect to the internet.
The Network Problem
Networking is still one of the main hurdles to get things done. We are so accustomed to the arcane ways of traditional networking it is hard for people to see how technology can bring down these barriers. Operating systems and networks are a means to an end: It is all about the applications. Process isolation —pioneered for modern UN*X in Sun Solaris (zones), FreeBSD (jails) and later OpenVZ / Linux-vserver — paved the way for Docker to emerge and with the development in namespace/cgroups in the linux kernel this is now a relatively mature technology. Add Weave to the mix and the world is suddenly upside down!
