Docker Online Meetups #28 and #29: Production-Ready Docker Swarm and Docker Networking is Now GA

This week, we hosted two Docker Online Meetups. The first on Wednesday featured Alexander Beslic presenting on production-ready Swarm. For the second one on Thursday, Madhu Venugopal discussed the recently-GA Docker Networking. Below are the recorded videos and slides from both presentations.  

Announcing Docker 1.9: Production-ready Swarm and Multi-host Networking

Today we’re releasing Docker 1.9 – and it’s a big one. Docker Swarm and multi-host networking are production-ready, Docker Engine has a new volume management system, and Docker Compose has much better support for multiple environments. These in combination establish the foundation for scaling your distributed apps in production. Containerization is changing how you build infrastructure, and you need to use the right tools for the job. Docker Swarm turns your infrastructure into a single pool of resources for running your distributed apps, but all of the containers that are part of those apps need managing somehow. And they all probably need to talk to each other. And some of them probably need to store data somewhere. In a world where a container could be running on any host in your infrastructure, this is a difficult thing to manage.
