About this Episode

In this podcast with John Willis, director of Ecosystem Development at Docker, we discuss how monitoring applications and systems changes when you introduce containers. Willis talks about functionally treating containers as having multiple perimeters, which involves treating the host and container as isolated entities. Many of the basic functions of monitoring remain the same, but there’s way more metadata involved with containers. That means taking advantage of features such as Docker’s APIs, and building off of that core functionality.

The Ecosystem Technology Partner (ETP) program continues to produce products and services that expand Docker monitoring functionality through an ecosystem of new solutions. Willis also talks about the recently released Docker InfraKit, a toolkit for self-healing infrastructure, and how that will impact container monitoring and management.
