Docker Swarm is native clustering for Docker. It turns a pool of Docker hosts into a single, virtual Docker host. Because Docker Swarm serves the standard Docker API, any tool that already communicates with a Docker daemon can use Swarm to transparently scale to multiple hosts.
Victor Vieux, a Software Engineer working on the Swarm product, presented an overview of Swarm along with a demo and Jeff Nickoloff, author of “Docker in Action”, reviewed his findings from scaling Swarm and Kubernetes.
Below are the recorded video and slides from the Docker Online Meetup.
