First demo video: containerizing Postgres 9

Hi all, Here’s a video going over the Postgres install we did with Ted at the last meetup. A quick overview of what happens there: 1. Upload a base ubuntu quantal image 2. Run a container from the base image, generate locales, commit the changes to the image 3. Run a new container from the upgraded base image, install postgres, commit a new ‘pg’ image 4. Run a pg container, tweak the configuration, commit. 5. Run a new container, create a dummy database and table, commit. 6. One more throw-away container, run the init script to figure out the full command-line. 7. Run the container with the command-line. It works! You now have a reusable postgres container. Total time: 6mn.
