Ahhh, summer. School’s out, the grill is getting used liberally, outdoor activities are on tap … and conference season is in full swing. NetApp and NetApp SolidFire have a great lineup of conferences this summer, starting this month with DockerCon, followed immediately by the Red Hat Summit. First up, containers in Seattle.


This year’s event marks the first time NetApp SolidFire, along with our new teammates from NetApp, have been a formal sponsor together, and we’re very excited to showcase all of the integration we’ve been doing with Docker. The number of use cases for persistent storage alongside containers is ever growing. Our development work around Docker volume plug-ins makes deploying and managing storage more simple and intuitive. NetApp’s participation in several technology partner programs, including Docker’s Ecosystem Technology Partner program and Mesosphere’s Open DC/OS program, showcase our commitment to the broader container ecosystem. Follow along on Twitter with #DockerCon.

Visit us:

  • Talk containers & storage
  • See some great demos on the NetApp Docker Volume Plug-in
  • Chat on camera and achieve internet fame with Pop Up Tech Talks
  • Get a free pair of NetApp SolidFire socks 

See our session: Tuesday, June 21; 2:25-3:10 p.m.; Managing Persistent Storage with Docker Containers; Garrett Mueller (@innergy), Technical Director at NetApp, and John Griffith (@jdg_8), Principal Software Engineer at NetApp SolidFire

Can’t make it to DockerCon? No worries! We’ll be hosting a “What You Missed” webinar shortly after the event. Be sure to sign up to hear about our observations at the event.   

Next, on to San Francisco and an open source experience. 

Red Hat Summit

The summit is the premier open-source event, and as a Silver sponsor, we have many activities scheduled all week long.
