The Cloudcast #179 - Managing Containers w/o a Tupperware Party (40:59)
Date: February 20, 2015
By: Aaron Delp and Brian Gracely
Description: Aaron and Brian talk with Nick Weaver (@lynxbat; Director of Software Defined Infrastructure @ Intel) about competing container formats and runtimes, managing containers at scale, PaaS + containers, and how applications are adapting to live in a container-centric world. We also dive into the deep dark secrets of being on the Cloud Foundry Foundation board of directors. Music Credit: Nine Inch Nails (www.nin.com)
Topic 1 - Lots going on with Containers these days. Let’s talk about the basics of Docker’s “batteries included but pluggable” vs. what CoreOS is proposing with Rocket and appc.
Topic 2 - We hear about managing containers at scale. The numbers can get big quickly. But what’s a logical point to have to look into a Mesos/Marathon or Kubernetes?
Topic 3 - Is there a big difference between these different container management frameworks?
Topic 3a - Any insight you can give us into the “Lattice” project from the Cloud Foundry Foundation?
Topic 4 - Will the container management frameworks get smart enough to where they don’t need something like Docker doing container-level “stuff” and they just manage cgroups or something closer to the container directly?
Topic 5 - VMware just released VIO for OpenStack. Can you image them creating a VID for Docker, or VIM for Mesos? Then they could manage native VMs, containers in VMs and native containers, in an Enterprise.Topic 6 - What part of the container ecosystem is most interesting to you these days?
