Container Basics (with a SQL Server Twist)

Dave Harmon, Sys Admin State of Oregon, DCBS

We all love Buzz Words don’t we? Containers (Application Virtualization) is getting a tremendous amount of attention currently. Containers are becoming increasingly common components in many developers’ toolkits. The goal of containerization, at its core, is to offer a better way to create, package, and deploy software across different environments in a predictable and easy-to-manage way. Before getting in the weeds of any technology it is helpful to start with the basics. This presentation clarify the differences between OS virtualization and Application virtualization. We will demo the basic Docker commands. The demo will also go over how to run prepackaged containers along with building our own. Furthermore we will run SQL Server in a container without having to run setup.exe to get the software running. How cool is that?
