Episode 16 - DockerCon and DevOps.jpg


Docker remains one of the hot topics in the industry today, and last week was their second conference of the year: DockerCon EU 2015.  NetApp was a Gold sponsor of the conference, and we proudly sent six people to meet, talk, geek, and fraternize with the attendees.  We had several demos at our booth, including cloning containerized MongoDB utilizing FlexClones and the Snap Creator Framework, automatic registration of containerized applications with Snap Creator, the NetApp Native Driver for ClusterHQ’s Flocker, and deploying a scale-out Docker Registry using NetApp and SnapMirror.


This week we have Garrett Mueller, Technical Director for NetApp, and Jonathan Rippy, Software Engineer for NetApp, on the podcast.  Garrett and Rippy were two of NetApp’s representatives at DockerCon Europe and they share with us their experiences at the conference, as well as some of the things they learned from the sessions.  Be sure to keep an eye on the NetApp Open Source Blog over the coming days for more information about the demos and additional work happening on the team.  If you want to reach out to the BARNACLE team about Docker, containers, or other technologies, send them an email at opensource@netapp.com.


It’s Docker time!
