Presented by: Eric Feliksik, Director of the Cloud Orchestra, Nerdalize
Nerdalize is a Dutch start-up that provides affordable and green computing power with an innovative approach. We heat living rooms with CPUs, as high-performance computer hardware is fit into a beautiful design radiator. While home owners heat for free, a massive distributed compute infrastructure becomes available.
In this talk, we give a detailed overview of how Docker, Rancher and other tools in the ecosystem enable us to leverage such a highly distributed micro-datacenter architecture. We discuss how our approach drastically eliminates data center infrastructure costs, and how we aim to change the environmental impact of the compute industry.
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.
