Multihost, multinetwork persistent containers

Alvin Richards (Aerospike)
4:20pm–5:00pm Wednesday, 05/18/2016
Location: Meeting Room 16B

Containers are great ephemeral vessels for your applications. But what about the data that drives your business? It must survive containers coming and going, maintain its availability and reliability, and grow when you need it.

Alvin Richards reviews a number of strategies to deal with persistent containers and discusses where the data can be stored and how to scale the persistent container layer. Alvin includes code samples and interactive demos showing the power of Docker Machine, Engine, Swarm, and Compose, before demonstrating how to combine them with multihost networking to build a reliable, scalable, and production-ready tier for the data needs of your organization.

This session is sponsored by Aerospike.
