CoreOS is a lightweight version of Linux designed to support rapid creation of potentially very large clusters of VMs that use Linux containers as the only packaging mechanism, including Docker containers. This session describes the basics of CoreOS, and discusses why one should be using the CoreOS if you are using the Linux Containers.

Audience will get to learn running/deploying a CoreOS cluster and also how the Container story fits well with the CoreOS.

    Thanks Brij. I'm glad someone proposed a demo on CoreOS.

    Is there a link where I can read more about your experience with CoreOS? I'm interested in understanding how you've used CoreOS, what challenges did you face, any data on performance, etc.

    Also can you please update your proposal with a video or slides from any past presentation? This will help the review committee understand your presentation style and plan your session accordingly.
