Docker Global Hack Day
What is Docker?
Docker is an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.
Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production*, on VMs, bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above.
Docker is mostly based on LXC containers, but can also run on other VM types.
Why the Hack Day?
- Because containerisation is more lightweight then emulating a full machine
- Because Docker just released their version 0.7, which should run on any recent distribution
- Because hotfixers on production and test systems should die
- Because OpenVZ is damn old
- 19H30: Live video streaming for Docker101: There will be a 1 hour long 101 online session starting at 10:30 am PST (19H30 BXL time) to help beginners get started with Docker.
