Hardware Virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand. Docker Containers are the next quantum leap - Are they?!

Additionally, a short live demo to prove the concepts and results will feature a database of 1.2 billion rows of data.
