Writing a new application for the cloud allows you to use cloud abstraction libraries like Fog, Libcloud, or Jcloud for multi-cloud compatibility. But what if you have legacy applications that need to be moved to the cloud, but that are not practical to re-write? Containers to the rescue! Using Docker containers, legacy app workloads can be encapsulated into a portable runtime that can work the same regardless what cloud you run them on, and when combined with Libswarm/Swarmd, you can run your application on a variety of target Platforms, including OpenStack based public clouds. The same containers you run in public clouds can also be used in your own OpenStack private cloud. Join us to learn about the exciting hybrid possibilities.
