Porting Docker for Windows is no small feat. The technology behind Docker today takes advantage of Linux capabilities like namespaces and cgroups. For native containers to exist on Windows and to have a Docker Engine for Windows, first similar primitives needed to be developed into the Windows operating system. In this session we will explain these Windows primitives in relation to similar primitives in Linux and other architectural changes on the OS and Engine side to make containerization possible. The process of porting includes not only the technology but also open source community interactions and cultural changes to enable this development. And of course there will be a cool demo…
Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 700 million times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including eBay, Baidu, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed an active ecosystem, resulting in more than 180,000 “Dockerized” applications, over 40 Docker-related startups and integration partnerships with AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google, IBM, Microsoft, OpenStack, Rackspace, Red Hat and VMware.
