Microservice Development Environment on OSX

If you are a Mac user who likes the feeling of deleting stuff and have drunken the docker inc. kool-aid (i.e. implementing microservice architecures on top of the “docker-toolbox”) this just might mean a breath of fresh air for you as well:

  1. uninstall vagrant
  2. trash your “favourite” hypervisor (vmware, virtualbox, etc) with it
  3. learn about the existence of the lean xhyve built on top of Apple’s own hypervisor framework (only on OSX 10.10+)
  4. dlite and docker-compose your docker development containers
  5. docker-compose up  yourself towards getting some programming done again

How to fix skewed system times on multiple vagrant instances

I’m having this problem with my local dev ceph cluster where the clocks on all my nodes would get heavily skewed after a while so rather than researching what’s going on here with virtualbox I just hit the problem with the unix hammer. So, were the guest tools installed? I don’t even know nor care.

Virtualbox is usually not my first choice with vagrant but https://github.com/ceph/ceph-ansible didn’t work out of the box with the vmware-fusion provider so I’m sticking with it for now.
