Docker Containers with Nimble and HPE Storage



A hot topic these days is containers. Throw in some buzzwords like DevOps, Cloud Native, Puppet, Chef, and more. At HPE Discover I was able to get a couple HPE and Nimble Storage guys and do my first joint podcast with folks from both Docker with Nimble and HPE Storage.PNGgroups. And the topic was containers. My two guests on the podcast were Srikanth (Srik) Venkata Sheshu, HPE Storage Solutions Manager and Michael Mattsson, Nimble Storage Principal Tech Marketing Engineer, both focused on containers, orchestration, and DevOps. 

Editor's Note: MARK YOUR CALENDAR: On February 22, 2018, Michael Mattsson hosts a BrightTalk webinar covering Advanced Data Services for Stateful Containers. Join live or on demand afterward.

Here's what we covered in the podcast:

  • 0:00 - 1:30 Introductions
  • 1:30 - 3:30 Persistent Storage for Docker
  • 3:30 - 9:10  Why HPE and Nimble Storage for Docker?
  • 9:10 - 11:15 What are customers saying about Docker and HPE?
  • 11:15 - 15:30 What are the kinds of questions about storage for Docker that users should be asking?
  • 15:30 - 17:25 Docker certified persistent storage plug-in
  • 17:25 - 22:20  What other storage considerations are there for Docker (e.g. orchestration) 
  • 22:20 - 23:00 How to get Docker plug-in
