Docker is a new, open sourced, container virtualization platform. With Docker, you package your application and its dependencies into an isolated file system called a container. Using Docker, you can create lightweight, portable, easy-to-deploy containers. You can use these to host your applications and microservices. You can even host your own Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution. In this session, you'll learn about Docker and the core concepts of containers. You'll look at both Linux containers, and the new Windows Server 2016 containers, including Hyper-V containers.

You will learn:

  • The difference between a VM and a Container
  • How to create Docker containers
  • How to host containers on Linux and Windows
