Conducting Systems & Services: An Evening About Orchestration

Orchestration of containers is one of the hottest topics in devops. Prior to Dockercon this year we thought it would be a great idea to bring in some of the thought leaders in this area and have a discussion of the challenges that face devops today and how solving large scale problems can help drive innovation in the cloud. So we found some folks from Juju, Docker, Kubernetes, Mesos, and Netflix; threw them up on a panel and got them talking about it. As you would expect one of the first things discussed was the use of the word “orchestration” in the first place. Is it even the right term?

Our panelists are Adrian Cockroft (formely of Netflix/Sun), Ben Saller (Ubuntu), Jeff Lindsey (Docker and a variety of other OSS projects), Bill Farner (Mesos), and Brian Grant (Kubernetes). Our moderator is John Willis (Docker). Thanks go out to the folks at Yelp for hosting us, and we hope to continue to repeat these sorts of discussions at other devops conferences.
