In this video from the Docker Workshop at ISC 2015, Andreas Schmidt from Cassini Consulting presents: Docker in a Nutshell. At 20:00 minute mark, he is joined by Jérôme Petazzoni from Docker who elaborates on Containers vs. VMs.
As the newest flavor of Linux Containers, Docker gained a lot of momentum in the last 12 months. With a very convenient and open API-driven architecture Docker is able to help decrease the complexity of operations and increase the productivity of computation. During the last two years Andreas, Christian, and Wolfgang gained a lot of experience with Docker and were thrilled by its possible impact early on. Andreas started working with Docker in mid-2013 and is interested in developing tools for solving Enterprise IT requirements on networking and security. In 2014 he held talks and workshops about these topics. Christian started using Docker in 2013 to virtualize a complete HPC cluster stack and since then held multiple talks about how Docker might impact HPC. Wolfgang and his partner Burak Yenier introduced Docker as a corner-stone of the UberCloud Marketplace to drastically improve and simplify access to HPC cloud resources. UberCloud just announced their new containers for computational fluid dynamics software like Fluent, STAR-CCM+ and OpenFOAM.
