Abstract:  Nearly everyone is familiar with virtualization and using virtual machines or LPARs. However, operating system virtualization (“Containers”) provides a lighter weight solution and are increasing in popularity, with many cloud providers like Amazon and Bluemix offering Container services. Docker has become one of the hottest solutions for container virtualization, and Db2 is quite happy running in a Docker container. In fact, it runs so well that IBM has started using this for its own solutions including, notably, Db2 Warehouse. Come to this session to learn how you can use Docker to help make both your and your developers’ lives easier.
