One of my readers wanted to know more about containers and wondered how ipSpace.net materials could help him. Here’s a short step-by-step guide:
From quick service deployment perspective, are containers any different from spinning up virtual machines?
If you want a glimpse of how things work: Matt Oswalt illustrated how easy it is to start a container or build an application stack with Docker Swarm and Docker Compose in his Introduction to Docker webinar.
Are there similar features in existence for containers such as vMotion, SRM etc
The technology introduction in Server- and OS Virtualization section of Data Center for Networking Engineers webinar will tell you why you cannot do vMotion (or at least why it would be exceedingly hard to do).
What are key considerations from Dev Ops perspective to choose between different Container Orchestration Platforms
Mathias covered that in a bit of detail, but not too much. He claims most his customers use Swarm, obviously you get a totally different message from Google or people partnering with them ;)
And of course what are you recommendations for Network Engineers around stuff they should absolutely know about Containers and material they should go through.
