One of the widely discussed technologies at Percona Live Europe was the logistics of running MySQL in containers. Containers – particularly Docker – have become a hot topic, so there was a good-sized crowd on day one of the conference for Ashraf Sharif, Senior Support Engineer with Severalnines. He presented his talk “MySQL on Docker: Containerizing the Dolphin”.
During his presentation, Ashraf shared some recommendations for best practices when setting out on containerizing MySQL. He sees the trend of moving to containers as a progression from the use of virtual hosts.
After his talk on day one of the Percona Live Europe conference, I caught up with Ashraf and asked about his presentation. I was interested in which concepts are most important for ensuring a smoother implementation.
