An Introduction to SQL Server & Containers

  • This event has passed.

Event description

Andrew Pruski will be giving this talk on a relatively new and very interesting area for SQL Server. Andrew has this to say on the talk:

“There’s a lot of buzz about containers in tech at the moment but not so much in the SQL Server world. I find this odd because as SQL Server people this technology has benefits that we simply shouldn’t be ignoring.

My session aims to take attendees through what containers are and how they can benefit us. There are drawbacks which will also be covered but I’m hoping after this session, attendees will be able to go back to their respective companies and be able to evaluate container technology to determine whether or not it will be of benefit”

Attendees will be taken through the following:

• The definition of containers

•  Virtual Machines vs Containers

• Container networking fundamentals

• Configuring Windows Server 2016 to run containers

• Creating and Installing the docker engine

• Pulling SQL images from the docker repository

• Running SQL Server containers

• Creating custom container images

• Sharing container images

• Case Study into a real world implementation of containers

Brief bio:
Andrew is a SQL Server DBA originally from Wales and has been living in Dublin for 3 years. He has been working with containers for over 2 years and has recently completed a project which implemented containers in the development process at his company Ding.
