Containers are the latest in what are new and innovative ways of packaging, managing and deploying distributed applications. On October 6th, the SNIA Cloud Storage Initiative will host a live webcast, â€œIntro to Containers, Container Storage Challenges and Docker.â€ Together with our guest speaker from Docker, Keith Hudgins, weâ€™ll begin by introducing the concept of containers. Youâ€™ll learn what they are and the advantages they bring illustrated by use cases, why you might want to consider them as an app deployment model, and how they differ from VMs or bare metal deployment environments.
Weâ€™ll follow up with a look at what is required from a storage perspective, specifically when supporting stateful applications, using Docker, one of the leading software containerization platforms that provides a lightweight, open and secure environment for the deployment and management of containers. Finally, weâ€™ll round out our Docker introduction by presenting a few key takeaways from DockerCon, the industry-leading event for makers and operators of distributed applications built on Docker, that recently took place in Seattle in June of this year.
Join us for this discussion on:
- 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 (focus on Enterprise-class storage services)
- Introduction to Docker
- Key takeaways from DockerCon 2016
This event is live, so weâ€™ll be on hand to answer your questions. Please register today. We hope to see you on Oct. 6th!
