Containers in the Enterprise - James Bottomley, Parallels

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

Container technology, also known as shared Operating System virtualization, has been around a long time in Linux, but has only recently penetrated the enterprise in terms of a containerised application deployment system: Docker.  This talk will look at what containers are and how they differ from Hardware virtualisation (Hypervisors), how docker makes use of containerisation to deploy applications in a fashion that's hard for hypervisors to duplicate.
Container virtualisation can also be exposed in a much more granular fashion than traditional hardware virtualisation, so we'll explore some of the possibilities applications can take advantage of using more granular virtualisation techniques that containers offer and how this
might lead to a next generation of containerised applications of which docker is the first example.  Finally, we'll explore how the enterprise might repurpose its investment in virtualisation hardware, like Network Function Virtualization and SR-IOV to make it useful in a container world.
