Talk details:

Docker-Security by Nils Magnus

The popular container virtualization has arrived on many developer desks and is now approaching more and more production environments. However, many ops teams are concerned about the security impact of containers.

This talk examines the security features of Docker, introduces the technology behind it and thus allows participants to assess whether Docker corresponds to their individual requirements. Furthermore, it presents a series of best practices that users should implement Docker to increase their security performance.

Docker-izing the SMACK stack @ Nitro by Roland Tritsch

SMACK (Spark, Mesos, Akka, Casandra, Kafka) is the stack we use at Nitro to get our machine learning and our research done. Initially the requirement is that the researchers can and need to iterate fast. When we productize the research it needs to scale.

Let’s talk about the Docker- and Mesos-based, “reactive” infrastructure platform you need to get this
done. Maybe, if the demo gods are with us, we can even dare to show the platform in action.
