Whether you have heard of Docker or you have no idea what it is and why you should care about it, if you are a DBA or a DevOps and you are still working with virtual machines, then this seminar is a MUST for you to empower yourself and learn about Docker concepts for Oracle and MySQL DBAs and DevOps.

Docker is an open source software development platform. Its main benefit is to package applications in container, a lightweight, stand-alone, executable package of a piece of software that includes everything needed to run it: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, settings. The container isolates the software from its surroundings, for example differences between development and staging environments, and helps reduce conflicts between teams running different software on the same infrastructure.

The adoption of containers has been steadily increasing for many applications, and it is considered as the next-generation of virtualization technology and an ideal solution specifically for database environments.

In this seminar, attendees will learn what Docker is all about and how you can benefit from using it in their day-to-day DBA and DevOps tasks. Attendees will also learn how the Oracle and the MySQL databases fit in Docker containers, and why it makes sense to use them together. In addition, attendees will learn how they can leverage Oracle’s official Docker containers to greatly improve their development and implementation operations.
