Docker’s David Yu on “Deploying Multi-OS Applications with Docker Swarm”

Last month, the Docker Las Vegas meetup hosted David Yu – a solutions engineer for Docker.

David oversaw a hands-on workshop about, “deploying multi-OS applications with Docker Swarm,” walking participants through building a Swarm cluster and deploying an app. The app was comprised of two services – each of which ran on a separate operating system.

“With the release of overlay networking for Windows Server 2016 it’s now possible to build swarms comprised of both Windows and Linux hosts,” David’s workshop abstract reads. “[This gives] operators a single platform for managing a diverse range of applications.”

David’s workshop provided participants with the chance to experience that first hand. Working in Docker-provided cloud instances, participants built a swarm and used features like constraints and affinities to place hybrid workloads appropriately.

This led to a healthy Q&A, and some great feedback from meetup attendees.

We want to thank David for taking the time to visit our Docker Las Vegas meetup – and to share David’s slide deck and workshop with our blog readers.

If you attended the meetup – or viewed the links – and have any questions about the content, feel free to drop us a line. We’ll be sure to get you the information you need.

We hope to see everyone at the next Docker Las Vegas in August.
