Speakers from Rackspace, ElasticBox, Google and Perspica will bring unique perspective from startup and established points of view to this relatively new trend.

    This was an engaging meetup. I particularly appreciated the diversity of point of views on containerizing stateful applications, and the distributed storage dilemma.
    Thanks organizers for the hospitality.

      Prem, it was a very good meetup both from speakers' as well as the following discussions. For me, the DevOps view of "Why Containers?", discussion on what to do with legacy apps viz z viz Containers and the challenges to adoption of Containers were specially interesting. Thank you and the team for putting it together.
