Fire your supervisord: running Python apps on CoreOS

Dan Callahan

Audience level:
Systems Administration


CoreOS is a new Linux distribution that makes it easy to deploy applications on dynamically scaled clusters of computers, and which has recently been embraced by infrastructure providers like DigitalOcean, Rackspace, and Google Compute Engine. Come learn how to package and deploy a Python application on this new, Docker-based platform.


Follow along as we package and deploy a simple Python-based webapp on a CoreOS cluster... and then try to destroy it. Discover how Fleet, Docker, and etcd keep the app running, even as we carelessly destroy VMs in the cluster.
