In this third installment of the series, Alexandre Beslic ( will present Docker Swarm, a Docker-native clustering system to manage containers at scale. In this talk Alex will review and demo the new features of Swarm 0.2.0. The talk will start by a general overview of the project and then move onto more advanced topics such as scheduler placing strategies, cluster resource management, node constraints and container affinity. Finally, the speaker will discuss the future of Swarm with high-availability and the support for state replication as well as the integration with third party schedulers such as Apache Mesos.
