A Database Month event

In this talk we will review what Docker is and why it is important to developers, admins and DevOps when they are using a NoSQL Database.

We also cover:

• Why persistence is a critical element for a successful multi-container strategy

• Using Docker to orchestrate a multi container application using Flask and Aerospike

• Injecting HAProxy and other production requirements while we deploy to production

• Scaling web and database clusters to grow to meet demand

This lively presentation will include an interactive demo showcasing the core Docker components (Machine, Engine, Swarm and Compose) along with integration with Aerospike.
