Talk: Docker and Kubernetes on CloudStack

This meetup is co-organised in cooperation with the DevOps Switzerland Meetup Group (

Abstract: Docker is kicking butt and taking names, changing the application deployment landscape and disrupting IT operations practices. With a streamlined application packaging process and an easy deployment scenario, docker is bringing containers back to life and questioning the "traditional" cloud architectures based on virtualization hypervisors. However the true strength of Docker comes of the orchestration of multiple containers, which makes distributed application easier to deploy, monitor, scale and make fault tolerant.

In this talk we will look at Kubernetes ( the Docker orchestration system open sourced by Google. We will show how it integrates nicely with CoreOS ( a new linux distribution whose sole purpose is to run docker containers. Finally we will show how Docker applications can be managed in the Cloud using Kubernetes, by deploying it on a CloudStack ( cloud -Exoscale ( that supports CoreOS templates.
