Data and Docker with Stephanie Locke
Can you use Docker with your database? While at NDC in London, Carl and Richard talk to Stephanie Locke about her experiences deploying database in containers. And as Stephanie says, you can deploy the database engine there, but the data has to live somewhere a bit more stable - like the cloud! The conversation digs into the power of containers for rapid deployment and upgrading, as well as the value of using different types of file stores for retaining data. In the end, a database creates files of data, and that's what you need to protect. Stephanie also talks about what databases make sense in different scenarios - it's not only about relational!
Steph Locke is living the dream as a data scientist, and spends her days engineering data solutions that protect people’s livelihoods. When she’s not doing funky stuff during the day, you can probably find her blogging, coding, or presenting at a community event. She runs three user groups in Cardiff, organises SQL Relay nationally, and is developing satRdays globally. Steph’s ongoing (some would say unholy) work combining Microsoft products and open source programs has seen her awarded with the Microsoft Data Platform MVP award.
