Containers and DevOps

Over the last couple of years, one of these single most exciting technologies to come out around the Data Platform has been containers. You may not see them change your production setup. However, I guarantee, you’re very likely to see them radically change your development process.

After all, in a matter of moments, you can have an instance of SQL Server to start development and testing against.

Rob Richardson

I’m blessed by being surrounded by smart people. One of them that I’ve been able to interact with a bunch of times is Rob Richardson. I saw him present a session on containers about three years ago. I have to say, at the time, all I could say was: Neat!

It took me another year, with several more presentations from other smart people to finally have the light bulb go off over my head.

I’m a little slow.

Now, Rob is going to be presenting a session at Redgate Streamed in a couple of weeks on “Database DevOps with Containers.”

Now you have an opportunity to get necessary knowledge from one of the smartest people I know. Further, because Rob has been working with containers for years beyond what many of the rest of us, he’s an invaluable resource.

So, please, follow this link. Get registered. Learn how containers are going to change the way you do development. Also, every registration raises the amount of money we’re going to donate to the Covid-19 WHO response fund. Even if you don’t plan to attend, please, register.

Just a note, this is a pure educational session with no Redgate content. In fact, most of Redgate Streamed is non-Redgate content. We’re trying to support #SQLFamily.

    One of the things about containers that i’d love to learn… you keep your microservices in docker and your sql in a big old beefy server… but you can put a tiny sql server in your container and when you put the container in test mode then you use the local data using the config file…. is this good practice?

    • Personal opinion… Yes!
      The reason I say this is because, depending on your needs, you want the data to persist. It’s not the right answer for every situation, but it’s the right answer for many situations.
