Containerize your life!

In this lab I will show a practical way to use heavy software (like OpenStack) or annoying software (like Cisco AnyConnect) via container technologies on insufficient or precious resources - for testing and preparing customer environments - or just because we can :-) We will start with preparing our laptops and then creating a sufficient RHEL image to put some workloads on it like the AnyConnect and RHOSP-Director to see possibilities and limits of this approach. This lab is not for deploying production environments - it's more about embedding software that's normally running in VMs on your weak Linux Laptop for testing things out. As an example we use OpenStack - if you know how this one works, everything else is a breeze!


What can I expect to learn?

- how to share ressources more effectively

- a deeper insight about the differences of Containers and VMs

- how to utilize Containers like VMs

- what are the pitfalls of containers?

- how to circumvent seemingly harware or VM related stuff - or how to fake it
