Good things come in small “containers”: Ingredients for a successful birthday party

written by Alex Giurgiu and Valentin Stoican, Seqvence For Docker’s 3rd birthday, the Docker team decided to organize a challenge to teach people Docker, and hopefully have some fun at the same time. It was a great event, with over 1180 people completing the assignment participating in 220 locations around the world. In this article, we will describe the way we leveraged Docker tools to create a platform capable of handling thousands of requests and testing more than 10,000 containers.

Submit Now for the DockerCon Cool Hack Challenge!

Those of you who have attended previous DockerCons or watched the videos already know that with the help of the community, the Docker team tries it’s best to end each conference with a bang! From Docker running on small IoT hardware devices (Raspberry Pi) to the biggest iron (IBM mainframes) to live migrating a Quake container around the world or running unikernels in Docker, DockerCon closing keynotes, also known as Moby’s Cool Hacks, aim to give everyone a sneak peak into what’s next for the Docker community. In case you missed it, check out the videos below from the previous DockerCons to see the cool hacks and demos that stood out of the Docker team and Community.

Update: Raspberry Pi DockerCon Challenge

In the DockerCon closing keynote Dieter Reuter from Hypriot presented a demo running 500 Docker containers on a Raspberry Pi 2 device. Convinced that this number of containers could be at least doubled, Dieter then challenged the Docker community to beat his personal record. As of now, the current record stands at 2334 web servers running in containers on a single Raspberry Pi 2. You can see the original demo here: [youtube:”https://youtu.be/MHJmNZSRve0?t=1m48s”]
