A Red Hat Tech Talk sponsored by Sopra Steria

'An Introduction to Containers' - What are they, what do they provide, how will my world change?

This short succinct event is your opportunity to get an overview of this emerging technology, discuss technology comparisons, and discover how to turn a container project into reality. You will also have the opportunity to take part in an innovation session in Sopra Steria’s DigiLab, followed by drinks and networking.

Session Overview

There are few things that have struck such resonance with the IT sector in such a short space of time as Containers. Is it timing? Is it down to the way people can see it transforms the way companies ultimately do business from a point of view of time to market, consistency, opening the cloud, making departments more agile or cost savings? Is it because it embraces newer software best practices such as microservices? Or all of the above. People easily see the benefits of Containers. They are a practical solution to many of their current problems. They bring about better IT practices than they are currently able to enforce, they naturally encourage DevOps and provide better economies for hardware utilisation and software costs. For this TechTalk we are going to assume you have heard about Containers but do not necessarily have full details. We will cover comparisons to existing technologies, security, standards, management, run-time and everything needed to turn a container project into a reality.
