General Session: Containers
Since its invention in 2013, container technology has proliferated across Linux environments – both among enterprises with advanced scale compute requirements and in the HPC world. From Kubernetes to Docker, container technologies are changing the way IT professionals build, test, and deploy applications. In the big data and HPC space, containers are fast becoming the preferred substrate upon which to deploy cluster applications. At the ASF, attendees will learn about the latest developments in container technology and get a glimpse into where the technology is headed, including new strategies and technologies for maximizing container effectiveness across multiple, disparate compute environments.
