Scott Lowe comments on his blog:
This is a live blog of session DATS004, titled “Bare-Metal, Docker Containers, and Virtualization: The Growing Choices for Cloud Applications.” The speaker is Nicholas Weaver (yes, that Nick Weaver, who now works at Intel).
Weaver starts his presentation by talking about “how we got here”, discussing the various technological shifts that have affected the computing landscape over the years. Weaver includes a discussion of the drivers behind virtualization as well as the pros and cons of virtualization.
That, naturally, leads to a discussion of containers. Containers are not all that new–Solaris Zones is a form of containers that existed back in 2004. Naturally, the recent hype associated with Docker has, according to Weaver, rejuvenated interest in the concept of containers.
You can’t throw a rock today without hitting someone talking about containers. The shift it represents in the applications virtualization status quo is interesting. Read on for Scott’s live blog of a container session at Intel Developer Forum 2014.
