Nulecule: Packaging, Distributing & Deploying Container Applications the Cloud Way

Presented at Config Management Camp EU 2016 on 2 Feb 2016

This repo contains the slides slides and files used for the talk and demo I presented about Nulecule.

I am very grateful to my colleagues, Tomas Kral and Michael Scherer, for their assistance with the demos and talk. I also want to thank Vaclav Pavlin for having faith in me to present when he couldn’t.

Talk Description

Currently there is no standard mechanism for creating, distributing and deploying applications on containers. Applications that need orchestration for multiple containers and hosts require hand-crafted customization that is difficult to replicate and manage, not to mention time-consuming. Nulecule is a specification for defining the packaged contents, including metadata, dependencies and orchestration providers, of container-based applications. Atomic App is the reference implementation of Nulecule that provides an easy method for packaging, distributing and running applications. This talk was original scheduled to be delivered by Vaclav Pavlin.
