Running Native Applications in a Browser with Droplet Computing

Nick Janetakis saw the launch of Droplet Computing last month at Cloud Field Day. He found the company’s mission to run native applications online or offline in a browser on any device to be genuinely cool technology. Using their Universal Container Runtime, they can run applications without worrying about the underlying OS or architecture. Most importantly, this isn’t just a concept. While still early days, Droplet disclosed that their tech is being used by companies in production. Nick was definitely intrigued by what he saw.


Episode 54: Get up, eat omelet, throw chair

On this episode of the Buffer Overflow podcast, Ned Bellavance talks about what he saw from Droplet Computing with their company debut at Cloud Field Day. They utilize browser-based containerization using Web Assembly to run applications independent of OS or architecture.


Cloud Field Day 3

Droplet Computing came out of stealth at Cloud Field Day last month, introducing their unique browser-based application container technology. Jane Rimmer worked with Droplet to coordinate the launch and found that “anyone wanting to work with a highly professional team, with a unique event concept, you MUST consider participating in a Tech Field Day to raise awareness for your company!”


Droplet Computing: Living La Vida Legacy

Many organizations can’t shed mission critical legacy apps that require obsolete OS’s and hardware. Rich Stroffolino outlines how Droplet Computing’s application containerization could make that problem a thing of the past. Their company launch at Cloud Field Day definitely left an impression.


Droplet Computing delivers universal app virtualization

Chris Evans shares his thoughts on Droplet Computing, who debuted their browser-based application containers at the event. Chris sees this as a way to free applications from any OS or architecture dependency. If Droplet can make the delivery seamless, he sees a bright future ahead for the company.


Droplet Computing makes a big splash at Cloud Field Day 3

Droplet Computing seems to have made a splash with their launch at Cloud Field Day (yes that pun hurts). Tim Crawford wrote up his thought on their application containerization solution. It’s not a silver bullet to modernize your data center, but it could help you more securely and efficiently use those older apps you can’t live without.


Droplet Computing Makes The Browser The Computer

Justin Warren takes a look at Droplet Computing’s use of WebAssembly to run legacy apps in a browser. It evokes the concept originally behind Java: write once, run anywhere. By decoupling applications from the hardware and OS traditionally needed to run them, organizations can continue to run business critical custom-built applications. While Justin admits there are security concerns with running older applications, having them running in an actively patched browser seems like a better trade-off than an unpatched obsolete OS.


Droplet Computing Unveils at Cloud Field Day at Rubrik’s Head Office in California

Droplet Computing came out of stealth at Cloud Field Day earlier this month. In this post, CTO Peter von Oven describes how this launch was a culmination of years of work on their Droplet Universal Container. This enables running apps in a browser, decoupling it from traditional dependencies like OS or system architecture. Make sure to check out their presentation videos for more details.


Traditional is the New Legacy

After hearing from Droplet Computing at Cloud Field Day, Rich Stroffolino asks the question: Are traditional apps the new legacy? He sees the term legacy falling out of usage for being too deterministic, and sees traditional gaining traction because it’s more descriptive.


Cloud Field Day Interview: Nick Janetakis

In this CTO Dose, Keith Townsend interviews first time delegate Nick Janetakis about his experience at Cloud Field Day. The company that really stood out to Nick was Droplet Computing, which came out of stealth at the event. As a developer and educator, he found their methodology of running containerized apps in a browser intriguing.


Cloud Field Day 3; Day 2 – That One Thing….

Day two of Cloud Field Day was the busiest of the event. Delegates were treated to see Droplet Computing come out of stealth, followed by presentations from Rubrik, Riverbed, and NetApp. In this post, Chris Porter runs down what he saw from each, and what stood out in each presentation.


Droplet Computing Unveils at Cloud Field Day

It’s always a thrill to see a company come out of stealth at a Field Day event. At Cloud Field Day this week, Droplet Computing made their public debut. They demonstrated a new approach to delivering legacy production applications, using their Universal Container technology to run apps in a browser without traditional OS or hardware dependencies.


Droplet Computing at Cloud Field Day 3

Jane Rimmer is happy to see Droplet Computing come out of stealth at Cloud Field Day this week. The company uses a unique container solution that allows for legacy and production applications to be run directly in a web browser. This isn’t just app layering or a different take on virtualization. Make sure to check out the full video of their presentation for the details.
