Two themes emerged from Docker’s keynotes:
- The increasing enterprise adoption of Docker for existing applications.
- Offering native support for Kubernetes to the Docker platform.
In both these themes, storage is a critical component for enterprises looking to reduce maintenance spend and increase agility with containerized infrastructure.
StorageOS was at Dockercon EU 2017 showcasing how we enable enterprises to adopt containers with the storage features they’d expect. The team was out in force and we had a ton of valuable conversations and demos with attendees and customers.
Our CTO, Alex Chircop, presented on Cloud Native Storage Patterns with a discussion on what the storage platform should look like in containerized infrastructures.
The StorageOS booth was swarmed with developers, architects, consultants and others looking for a solution to running stateful containers. We also had the “best DockerCon swag”, bringing a little bit of London to Copenhagen with our red double-decker bus!
Our customers say that StorageOS is a key enabler for running databases with Docker and Kubernetes.
