It's clear that Docker speeds up development and makes testing and deployment more efficient. As Docker moves into production new use cases and patterns are emerging that address availability and security concerns. With microservices, safety is part of the architecture that developers need to understand and build for. It's no longer good enough to wrap a firewall around an entire app when it goes to production, and have a cold standby in case it breaks. This talk will explore concepts like consistency vs. availability, root of trust, attack surface and minimum privilege as they apply to docker based deployments.
Docker is an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere.
Docker containers can encapsulate any payload, and will run consistently on and between virtually any server. The same container that a developer builds and tests on a laptop will run at scale, in production*, on VMs, bare-metal servers, OpenStack clusters, public instances, or combinations of the above.
