You Got Your VM In My Container


Of course we're used to running containers on top of virtual machines, but did you know you can also run virtual machines in containers, or as containers? And containers on VMs in containers on VMs? That may sound crazy, but there's plenty of reasons to intermix containers and VMs ... truly they are Two Great Tastes that Taste Great Together.

In this talk, we'll go over the current state of the art in mixing containers and VMs, including technologies like KubeVirt, ClearContainers, and OpenStack-on-Kubernetes. We'll go over some of the reasons you might have for both mixing and layering. And then we'll wrap up with a practical demonstration of running a Kubernetes database service using Kubevirt.
