I decided to publish slides of the talk I gave to my team at Microsoft Azure yesterday. It was a 30 minute talk introducing to Linux Containers, cgroups, Docker, CoreOS and clustering solutions in Docker ecosystem.

I can tell you that my colleagues at Azure Fabric Controller were astonished by how LXC namespaces and cgroups easily can replace Hypervisors and how quickly Docker spins up new containers. I used a Linux VM in Azure to demonstrate spinning up containers running some basic commands, memcached servers and I showed how one can create Docker images by connecting the machine as well as using Dockerfiles.

I got quite some feedback saying it was an enlightening and fun talk. I’m hoping to reuse this talk somewhere else soon! You can find slides here (and animated version here).
