In my last few jobs I have had the pleasure to work on three main focus areas, Software Defined Networking, OpenStack, and Linux Containers. More recently I have been focused on container data management and what it means for persistence and data management to be a first class citizen to containerized applications and microservices. This has done a few things for me, give me an opportunity to work on interesting (and hard) problems, hack, create and apply new solutions and technologies into proof of concept and production environments. In my current role as a Technical Evangelist at ClusterHQ we have been hard at work continuing the Flocker project, creating the Volume Hub and spinning out dvol (git workflows for Docker volumes / data). All of this is aimed at one major thing, helping your team move from development on your laptop to test and Q/A and finally into production seamlessly with persistence.
We’re just at the beginning of the container and data revolution and if your interested in learning more about some of these topics, click the links below and vote for some upcoming talks at OpenStack Austin 2016.
