Why I Moved My Server To RancherOS

Published on in πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» Dev

Containers are wonderful and Docker is a really awesome and lifesaving technology, even if you don’t host sites and services with millions of users that need to auto-scale etc. Docker can already simplify a simple hosting setup just with a couple of small webpages and a Git server.

Actually, I was a Medium hardcore fan. Medium was something like my home. For my writings. And it was the place where I found some reading material.
