Show 18 – Docker Networking

EXPLODING back into action in 2016 is the Class C Block, keeping up our legendary breakneck pace of 2 shows a year. Try to keep up.

With show #18, we’re joined by two very special guests, who started a company called Socketplane back in late 2014, which was very quickly acquired by Docker in early 2015. They’ve been working hard on bringing a robust, yet simple networking solution into the Docker ecosystem.

It was a lot of fun to chat with these gents, especially considering that so much has changed for everyone since we had them on last time, for show #12.

Our guests are:

We also discussed the “Gopher-Net” organization on Github – if you’re involved with Golang and/or networking, stop on by!

Show 12 – Insieme and the Nexus 9000

For Show 12 we had the privilege of sitting down for an early look at Insieme’s new hardware and Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). Joe Onisick lays out exactly what Insieme’s been doing and the hardware they have coming out. We also haveĀ James Bowling on the show to provide us with the perspective of the server and virtualization admin.

In Show #11 we talk about overlay networking, and specifically VMware NSX, announced last week at VMworld 2013.

We were fortunate enough to be joined by Ivan Pepelnjak (@ioshints) for this episode, where we talk about some of the technical details and challenges behind an overlay networking approach.



Show 8 – Poking IPv6 with a stick
