Elephants in Containers


In the wake of DockerCon, the July meetup in San Francisco will be all about Linux Containers:

  • Chris Winslett of Compose.io will present Governor, an auto-failover system for managing a cluster of PostgreSQL replicas.
  • Madhuri Yechuri of ClusterHQ will explain Flocker, which uses the brand-new plugin interface for Docker in order to support volume management and data migration for containers.

If you're not familiar with all of this containerish stuff, Josh Berkus will do a 5-minute primer on using Postgres with Docker at the beginning of the session. Hosted by Salesforce.com in their new Rincon Cafe.

(note: Salesforce will require attendees to RSVP with their full names, and sign a confidentiality statement, which will be supplied to attendees in advance)
