You as a MySQL architect are wondering about how you might make use of running MySQL in a container. You are also aware that the MySQL team at Oracle has recently released a new version of MySQL 8.0 with many advantages for both developers and DBAs.
I will illustrate 8.0 features with a real-time demo of MySQL 8.0 within a Docker container and why you’ll want to incorporate both into your DevOps environment. This demo highlights why a container is perfect for testing MySQL, how to set up your MySQL 8.0 container, and outlines which features within MySQL 8.0 are perfect for containers.
