Running WordPress in a container

This exercise was beyond successful.

docker run -e MYSQL_ROOT_PASSWORD=<password> -e MYSQL_DATABASE=wordpress --name wordpressdb -v "$PWD/database":/var/lib/mysql -d mariadb:latest
docker run -e WORDPRESS_DB_PASSWORD=<password> --name wordpress --link wordpressdb:mysql -p 80:80 -v "$PWD/html":/var/www/html -d wordpress


  • Color by hirarchy

    • Placement > Color by Hierarchy, then hit Reload
  • Area report by hierarchy: report_area -hierarchy

  • Download and untar latest version of go at
  • Set GOPATH and GOROOT environment variables. GOROOT points to go binary install. GOPATH points to your workspace (e.g. $HOME/go).

Notes from

  • Go is only compatible with code that resides in a workspace.
  • Go does not allow you to depend on specific versions of external packages.
  • There are no local packages, only fully qualified imports.
  • All files in a single directory belong to one package

A. Caulfield et al., "A Cloud-Scala Acceleration Architecture"

New cloud architecture that uses FPGA to accelerate network plane functions (encryption) and applications (search ranking).

Network flows can be transformed at line rate using FPGAs.

FPGA are placed between NIC and CPU in each node of network. Three scenarios: local compute acceleration (through PCIe), network acceleration, and global application acceleration.
