We hosted 15th Bangalore Docker meetup at VMware Office on 31st Oct’15. We wanted to do all the storage related talks this time, like we did for networking last time. But we did not get speakers for all the topics we decided earlier. Thanks for Debashish and Moorthy who came forward to pick a topic each. Following is the agenda we had :-
- Docker Q & A
- Storage backends for Docker (DM, OverlayFS.. ) – Neependra Khare, Red Hat
- Docker Volumes and Volume Containers –Debashish Saha
- Developing Docker Volume Plugins – Moorthy RS
- VMware Appcatalyst and Photon OS – Vaibhav Kohli, Kumar Gaurav, VMware
We started the session with Q & A session in which participants raised questions about Volumes, Security and Docker in Production. After a round of introduction we started sessions. I gave the first session on storage backends for Docker. I extended my tutorial which I gave at LinuxCon EU last month, so that participants can try it later on as well. After my session Debashish Saha talked about Docker Volume. After that Moorthy RS gave excellent talk on Docker Volume plugin. He showed with an SSHFS example, which was really helpful.
At last Vaibhav and KG from VMware talked about Photon, which minimal container OS like Project Atomic and CoreOS. They also gave overview of VMware Appcatalyst , which VMware is promoting as Desktop Hypervisor for Developers. Currently it is available for Mac OS only.
Once the session were, we took suggestions for topics for next Meetup, which we’ll schedule at this month end or first week of Dec.
