Containers demystified

Jan Karremans

A new paradigm of application delivery, that is what containers are. If you are looking at implementing Dev/Ops, infrastructure as a code, if you want to adopt the Cloud or seeking to go with Microservices, you will find Containers on you path.

After the opportunities that virtualization brought, Containers are the next best thing! Also (and perhaps specifically) looking at databases with containers, it brings specific challenges. Where containers infrastructures are built to fail and database rely on persistency, you have challenges.

In this presentation Jan Karremans will introduce you to some of the considerations regarding Containers and containerization. Both from an architectural and abstract level as well as from a more practical level you will get more insight in the why and how of this deployment technology.
