Thanks to Docker and Windows Containers, it's now possible to have a no-fuss, full SQL Server instance on your development, test or QA machine. You can use SQL Server for Linux in a Docker container on any platform that supports a Docker engine or SQL Server in Windows Containers. The containers allow you to instantly spin up one or more SQL Servers as needed and wipe them out then restart a clean instance when the time is right. This makes for a killer developer environment to have the full power of SQL Server on-the-fly. It also is a boon for automated test environments where you need to run integration tests against SQL Server. This session, which will provide a step-up for Docker newbies, focuses on using Docker to get, run and manage SQL Server for Linux instances. You'll also learn about persisting data and how to create and share an image with your own database already on it. We'll use the awesome new cross-platform SQL Operations Studio to check out the databases served up from the containers.
