Docker is a tool that can package an application and its dependencies in a virtual container that can run on any Linux server. This helps enable flexibility and portability on where the application can run, whether on premise , public cloud, private cloud, bare metal, etc.
Docker extends a common container format called Linux Containers (LXC), with a high-level API providing a lightweight virtualization solution that runs processes in isolation. Docker utilizes LXC, cgroups, and the Linux kernel itself.Unlike traditional virtual machines, a Docker container does not include a separate operating system, instead it relies on the operating system’s functionality provided by the underlying infrastructure.
The container technology in Docker can be used to extend distributed systems to run autonomously of a single physical machine or single instance per node, enabling nodes to be deployed as resources are available to provide a more seamless and platform as a service (PaaS) style deployment for systems like Apache Cassandra, Riak and related distributed systems.
4.30pm – 4.45pm
