With 100K+ views to date, our blog ‘MySQL on Docker: Understanding the Basics’ has become a popular go-to resource for MySQL users who are looking to get an initial understanding of and start experimenting with Docker. Ashraf Sharif, Senior Support Engineer at Severalnines and author of the blog, is now turning it into a live presentation for this new webinar, which we will run as a series that will accompany the blogs.

Docker is quickly becoming mainstream as a method to package and deploy self-sufficient applications in primarily stateless Linux containers. This could be a challenge though for a stateful service like a database. As a database user you might be asking yourself: How do I best configure MySQL in a container environment? What can go wrong? Should I even run my databases in a container environment? How does performance compare with e.g. running on virtual machines or bare-metal servers? How do I manage replicated or clustered setups, where multiple containers need to be created, upgraded and made highly available?

If you’re looking at taking your first steps with Docker for MySQL and if any of these questions sound familiar, then this webinar is made for you :-)


This webinar is for MySQL users who are Docker beginners and who would like to understand the basics of running a MySQL container on Docker. We are going to cover:

  • Docker and its components
  • Concept and terminology
  • How a Docker container works
  • Advantages and disadvantages
  • Stateless vs stateful
  • Docker images for MySQL
  • Running a simple MySQL container
  • The ClusterControl Docker image
  • Severalnines on Docker Hub
The only management system you’ll ever need to take control of your open source database infrastructure.
