Taking Control Of Chaos With Docker

This talk will take you on a journey from an old, badly understood, insecure and hard to maintain infrastructure to a new, shiny well known, well tested, automated and secure replacement - a transition made using lxc containers and docker.io


Starting with a gentle introduction to docker and lxc, it'll move on to discussing how to use them to take control of and audit an organically grown environment. Topics covered will include: how to design a container based architecture, how (or if) to run configuration management software inside containers, how to arrange immutable containers for services with persistent mutable data (e.g. postfix, mysql) and how to effectively share puppet code between old (metal) and new (containerized) environments.


Tomas Doran works on infrastructure automation at large scale for Yelp. He’s speaks regularly at devops events and other technical conferences on a number of topics between testing, development, architecture, automation and systems administration. Tom came to the dark side of systems & devops after being a professional perl developer for many years. He’s an avid open source contributor and lives in London with his fiancé and far too many cats.

    From an email Jeff sent to the other organizers a few days ago:

    * We will be on the second floor (not down in the Cafe).
    * The meeting space is newly remodeled with chairs, couches, tables, etc.
    * Salt & Honey will provide catering, including a bartender serving beer & wine.
    * The Cafe officially closes at 6. Doors will open for attendees at 6:45.
    * Security guards have been hired to work the door and handle the guest list.
    * We all need to be gone by 9:30.

    So not only is there food, there's BOOZE. Capital One is a stellar host.
