We organised (a very last minute call) Docker Switzerland User Group Meetup last night at the Swisscom offices in Hardbrücke, Zürich.

Luke Marsden, CTO & Co-Founder of ClusterHQ, gave an insightful talk on “Docker, data and extension”. He spoke about Flocker, a manager for data volumes in Docker allowing for easily moving around storage (e.g., databases, queues and key-value stores) along with containers across different hosts.

Despite a very short notice announcement on the meetup page, we were 19 people listening to Luke and enjoying the delightful cold beer (from us) and afterwards, a delicious round of pizzas (from ClusterHQ). Unfortunately we couldn’t video-capture the talk, but you can see Luke giving a very similar talk at a previous event in London here.

Many thanks to Swisscom for providing space at the short notice and to ClusterHQ for not sending us home with an empty stomach! Thanks to all the kind folks who joined us and made the event fun with their interesting discussion and stories.

The Docker team will be back soon!
