Docker is a great new project for managing containers. Containers are operating system resource isolation and allocation benefits as virtual machines yet are more lightweight and allow you a lot of flexibility and how you can design your application and database architecture. This talk will cover how many useful things one can do with Docker and MySQL: * How to builld ready-to-launch containers that are "batteries included" MySQL servers * How to back up and restore MySQL databases using a container strategy that allows both containers and host systems access to the same data * How to network containers across hosts * Container clustering solutions such as CoreOS, Kubernetes, and Mesos and how each of these solutions solves a similar requirement * How to automate containerized MySQL using Ansible * A summary detail and demonstration of the speaker's recent contribution to Kubernetes-- a Galera cluster application, showing how one can have a quickly deployable MySQL synchronous replication cluster in minutes and use it with other Kubernetes applications.
