Docker is a linux container technology that is taking the world by storm. It has enabled a vibrant ecosystem of open-source and private container images, including dozens of data storage solutions. However, there are still many tricky cases to manage with Docker, such as upgrading containers smoothly, accessing volumes inside and outside the container and bridging network ports from container to host. In this presentation, we survey techniques for managing Docker containers across many data stores and apply the best ones within our own Docker buildfile with the most current practices for database management. We look at MySQL & Docker in the big picture, from development to deployment, operations and maintenance.
