This blog provides show notes for our November 2 webinar, “Deploy Bold BI to Docker in Under a Minute.” The webinar was presented and hosted by Boomigha Velayutham. If you missed the webinar, or would like to watch it again, check it out on our YouTube channel, or watch it here.
In this webinar, we delved into the basics of Docker, understanding its advantages and how it can be utilized in deploying Bold BI in just a minute. We guided attendees through the process of upgrading Bold BI once it’s deployed on the Docker container. Finally, we demonstrated how to manage the containers and volumes, taking them up and down as needed, and how to maintain the application from a local perspective to maintain a persistent volume.
This webinar is ideal for those interested in BI Docker deployment and looking to streamline their application development and management processes. You will gain practical knowledge and skills that you can apply immediately to your own Docker environment.
