About Brian Christner

Brian Christner

Brian Christner hails from Arizona but now resides in the Alps of Switzerland. Brian's spent a large portion of his career in the casino industry where he made sure the house always won. Brian is a nominated member of the Docker Captain’s program and a seasoned cloud architect. He is also a cloud subject matter expert in the topics of Docker, Cloud Foundry, IaaS, PaaS, DevOps, CI/CD and of course container monitoring. Brian is passionate about advocating for cloud and containers. When Brian is not busy trying to containerize everything he can be found riding his mountain bike or skiing in the Swiss Alps.


I'm a devoted technologist to everything Cloud, actually a Cloud junkie. I'm either researching new features, writing code for Docker or Cloud Foundry, or comparing new features with out competitors.  You can catch me attending OpenStack meetups, Docker events, or just about anything with Cloud in the title.

I currently work for Swisscom as a Cloud Advocate/Architect. Our products include Cloud Products (shocking I know) such as Dynamic Computing where all data is stored in Switzerland and out of legal reach from the NSA. I architect features and investigate new technologies for the Swisscom Cloud.

My Docker Presentations

I'm very involved in various Docker projects and communities. Have a look at my latest DockerCon EU presentation about Docker Monitoring:
