from SUSE

As member of the ISV Engineering team I am the Public Cloud Architect and the Tech Lead for the SUSE-IBM Software Integration Center. In addition to working with the IBM software group I assist other ISVs with respect to Integrated Systems and technical questions related to SUSE Linux.

Away from ISV Engineering I am an openSUSE Board member, I contribute to the KIWI project, openSUSE, a number of other open source cloud related projects, and am an active member of the LSB work group.

Docker is all the hype these days. In this short talk I will take a look at some of the not so pleasant issues that come along with containers that not many appear to want to acknowledge or talk about. This is not a Docker tutorial nor will we discuss any technical details about the tools or how Docker functions. Rather in this talk we will explore side effects of container building and what these side effects imply for the management of the OS or IT infrastructure in general.

There are other questions that Docker, or containers in general bring along. We will spend time of pondering one of the more fundamental questions, in a world of containers, what does it mean to be a distribution?
