DockerCon 2017 is a three-day, Docker-­centric conference organized by Docker, Inc that takes place from April 17-20, 2017 in Austin, Texas. As a gold sponsor of the event, VMware will be there to support the Docker community and participate in sessions, share demos, and promote the event.  

If you’re heading to DockerCon 2017 next week in Austin, connect with us to learn how VMware’s Cloud Native Apps portfolio and open source technologies enable developers and IT from dev-test to production. VMware subject matter experts will be onsite to walk you through demos and use cases for securely developing, deploying and managing container-based applications.

Attend the Self-Service Provisioning of Docker Datacenter on VMware vSphere Session

Join VMware in a session discussing how new self-service provisioning capabilities in vSphere will allow developers and cloud admins to deploy and operate Docker Datacenter in a ticketless manner. Software Engineers Ivan Porto Carrero and Benjamin Corrie will give a sneak preview of current development work aimed at giving developers access to container frameworks on demand – while at the same time leveraging the advanced performance, availability, and security capabilities of vSphere.

WHEN: Tuesday, Apr 18, 4:15 PM – 4:35 PM
WHAT: Self-Service Provisioning of Docker Datacenter on VMware vSphere
TRACK: Ballroom C

This session will highlight how features like DRS, SDRS, HA, and NSX micro-segmentation can be used to make your container deployments more highly available, secure, performant and maintainable.

Join the Conversation at Booth G9
