  • Virtualization technologies: from virtual machines to containers;
  • Basics of Docker (with hands-on examples);
  • Docker networking and storage models;
  • Network security aspects of containers and Docker;
  • Impact of Docker on data center networking.


After attending this workshop you'll be able to:

  • Describe the differences between virtual machines and Linux containers;
