Containers, Microservices and Data Gravity

A session at LISA15

  • John Willis

Wednesday 11th November, 2015

2:45pm to 3:30pm (EST)

The convergence of these three ideas is causing a major disruption in the way we do infrastructure. We will first cover an overview of the three areas (Containers, Microservices and Data Gravity) then we will look at some use cases where the three are converging. I have often said that Containers are the killer app for Microservices and Data Gravity is the killer app for Containers. Come spend some time understudying the these three major areas of change.

John Willis is Technical Evangelist for Docker, which he joined after the company he co-founded (SocketPlane, which focused on SDN for containers) was acquired by Docker in March 2015. Before founding SocketPlane in the fall of 2014, John’s experience included VP of Customer Enablement at Stateless Networks, Chief DevOps Evangelist at Dell, and executive roles at Opscode/Chef and Gulf Breeze Software.
