The IT sphere is abuzz with excitement regarding microservices and containers. We certainly saw the interest in this hot trend at our recent Veritas Vision 2016 event in Las Vegas where John Willis (@botchagalupe) from Docker presented a very informative session. Practitioners worldwide are attracted by the promise containers hold for enabling their DevOps ambitions. My colleague, Chad Thibodeau (@cthibodeau2) will be helping present a webinar this week that will explain containers, implications for storage management and discuss key takeaways from DockerCon 2016 that was held in Seattle.
Topics discussed will include:
Application deployment history
Containers vs. virtual machines vs. bare metal
Factors driving containers and common use cases
Storage ecosystem and features
Container storage table stakes
Introduction to Docker
Key takeaways from DockerCon 2016
The webinar (Introduction to Containers, Container Storage Challenges and Docker) is scheduled for 10 AM PT, October, 6. Sign up here if you would like to attend.
