About the meetup:
Ross Gardler is the product manager of Azure Container Service. As part of his role in Microsoft he works very closely with Docker around the world. In the meetup Ross will share the R&D vision and the roadmap of the Azure Container Service and will have an open discussion with the participants about ideas and challenges of the Israeli Docker community regarding the future versions of the product. This is a one time opportunity to have a dialog with one of the most impacting people in the OSS world and about the one of most interesting services in the Microsoft cloud.
In his own words:
Azure Container Service addresses these challenges by providing simplified configurations of proven open source container orchestration technology, optimized to run in the cloud. With just a few clicks you can deploy your container-based applications on a framework designed to help manage the complexity of containers deployed at scale, in production.
We built Azure Container Service to be the fastest way to get the benefits of running containerized applications, using your choice of open source technology, tools and skills and with the support of a thriving community and ecosystem.
With Docker image support and our commitment to open source software in the orchestration layer, your application is fully portable across any cloud and on-premises. Unlike other container services, the Azure Container Service is built on 100% open source software to maximize portability of workloads and offers a choice among popular orchestration engines: DC/OS or Docker Swarm.
