Taking Containers to the Next Level - James Bottomley, Odin

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Although container technology has been around for nearly two decades, it is only recently that the virtualization properties that provide very different use cases from traditional hypervisors are being explored. One of the interesting things about containers is that they are not all or nothing, like hypervisors, but may have each subsystem virtualization separately applied. There has been quite a bit of work in the past year to bring granular container virtualization directly to applications via libcontainer and its extensions (instead of via an orchestration system). This talk will explore exactly what properties applications can expect to gain directly from container technology (things like multi tenancy, configuration update/rollback, memory constraints, and advanced networking) and what the nature of cloud applications might become in future as this trend evolves.
