Presentation: Multi-Host, Multi-Network Persistent Containers



1:40pm - 2:30pm

Day of week:



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.

In this talk, we will review a number of strategies to deal with persistent Containers; we will also discuss where the data can be stored and how to scale the persistent Container layer. We will include code samples and interactive demos showing the power of Docker Machine, Engine, Swarm and Compose, then combine them with multi-host networking to build a reliable, scalable and production-ready tier for the data needs of your organization.
