To Use Physical Or To Use Virtual: That is the container deployment question

Mike Coleman

I have had a version of the following conversation more than a few times with community members trying to sort out where to run their containerized apps in production:

User: So, where should I run my containers? Bare metal or VM’s

Me: It’s not a question of “either / or” – that’s the beauty of Docker. That choice is based solely on what’s right for your application and business goals – physical or virtual, cloud or on premise. Mix and match as your application and business needs dictate (and change).

User: But, surely you have a recommendation.

Me: I’m going to give you the two word answer that nobody likes: It depends.

User: You’re right, I don’t like that answer.

Me: I kind of figured you wouldn’t, but it really is the right answer.

There are tough questions in the world of tech, and the answer “It depends” can often be a cop out. But in the case of where to run your containerized applications it really is the best answer because no two applications are exactly the same, and no two companies have exactly the same business needs.Continue Reading

Announcing (Even) More Speakers for DockerCon 2016

Sophia Parafina

A quick note about the selection process: this year the Review Committee reviewed 570+ proposals using a double blind process, which means proposals were reviewed just by their abstract, outline and takeaways. From the initial review, we selected the top 100 proposals and began conversations with the authors of the most promising talks. We’re not quite done yet, but we expect to publish the schedule soon!

If your proposal was not accepted, please consider submitting for a local meetup or another conference. Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to both submit and review the proposals.

Without further ado, here are the next round of DockerCon speakers selected by the DockerCon Community Review Committee.
