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?! Databases always represented an additional set of challenges unique to running workloads requiring a maximum of I/O, network, CPU resources combined with data locality. In this session we will walk you through the following: (1) Characteristics, performance, value, architecture and operations of database containers; (2) A demo on how a traditional application like SAP and SAP HANA can be fully containerized; (3) A live demo to prove the concepts and results will feature a database of 1.2 billion rows of data. - This session is not to be missed.
