Abstract:   Docker as the dominant flavour of Linux Container continues to gain momentum within datacenter all over the world. It is able to benefit legacy infrastructure by leveraging the lower overhead compared to traditional, hypervisor-based virtualization. But there is more to Linux Containers - and Docker in particular, which this workshop will explore. It's portability, reproducibility and distribution capabilities outclass all prior technologies and disrupt former monolithic architectures, due to sub-second life cycles and self-service provisioning. This workshop is split in a introductional part (plumbing), explaining the technology and a second part which discusses different aspects and HPC/HP-BigData specifics and the challenges involved when introducing Linux Containers into a traditional IT landscape.  

Targeted Audience 
Software developers, users, and managers of data center and cloud infrastructure and applications.
