In the past week, Luke Marsden from ClusterHQ and I joined the Crate.io team in their awesome SnowSprint right up in the Austrian Alps. We all had a wonderful time and hacked away, with some very exciting results.

Here is a preview of how Docker extensions for Weave and Flocker can work together to enable migration of Crate database containers between two hosts. We’ve used Powerstrip (which just launched yesterday) to implement this integration, and demonstrate how APIs of a forthcoming extensions framework can be prototyped with ease.

A huge thanks goes to the Crate.io team – Jodok, KenanSpanky and everyone else, for getting all of us down here! And just in case you don’t believe, we had lots of fun indeed!
