Docker offers a great deal of advantages, simplifying both development and production environments. But there is still uncertainty around the security and performance of containers. Drawing on his experience building Katacoda—a platform that provides users with a sandboxed and personalized learning playground (with the side effect that they can execute malicious code and hack the system from inside the container)—Ben Hall investigates the security and performance of containers. You’ll leave with an understanding of Docker’s security and performance models, their limitations, and how to handle them.
Ben Hall is the founder of Ocelot Uproar, a company focused on building products loved by users. Ben has worked as a system administrator, tester, and software developer and launched several companies. He still finds the time to publish books and speak at conferences. Ben enjoys looking for the next challenges to solve, usually over an occasional beer. Ben recently launched Katacoda, an online learning environment for developers that helps break down the barriers to learning new technologies such as Docker and containers.
