Fink, John (2013) Linux Containers and Docker: A New Sort-Of Virtualization Framework That Will Leave You Confused, Yet Excited For The Future Of Virtualization Technologies, If That’s The Sort Of Thing You Usually Get Confused and/or Excited By. In: Access Conference 2013, September 23-26, 2013, St. John's, NL. (Unpublished)
A lighthearted romp through the recent history of virtual machines, with a particular focus on a feature in recent iterations of the Linux kernel known as Linux Containers, and a tool for working on those containers known as Docker. Docker and containers work together to provide a very lightweight and flexible virtualization framework that could change how libraries configure and deploy server side software. Attendees will learn about virtualization in general and Docker in particular and how they might apply it to their local context.
