Docker: to keep those old apps ticking

By | January 16, 2015

Got an old, long running app on CentOS-4 that you want to retain ? Running a full blown VM not worth while ? Well, Docker can help. As Jim found out earlier today :

Given that CentOS-4 is out of life now, we are not going to push CentOS-4 images to official CentOS collection on the Docker registry, but if folks want this, please ask and we can publish a short howto on whats involved in building your own.

Ofcourse, always consider migrating the app to a newer, supported platform like CentOS-6 or 7 before trying these sort of workarounds.

Docker is available out of the box, by defauly, on all CentOS-7/x86_64 installs.
