DevOps Days 2017: Design, Build and Operate Docker-Based Microservices
Flux7 CEO Aater Suleman will be speaking at DevOps Days Austin 2017, taking place May 4-5, 2017 Aater’s talk, titled “Top Ten Considerations When Planning Docker-based Microservices” is on Friday May 5th, starting at 4:50 pm. See the full program here.
Microservices are being adopted widely across organizations of all sizes and all industries for their ability to increase service delivery and speed time to market while decreasing team overhead. Replacing monolithic apps — or building greenfield ones — with microservices makes some applications easier to build and maintain, making it easier to deliver technology quickly in today’s competitive landscapes.
Docker containers are a natural fit for microservices as they inherently features autonomy, automation, and portability. Docker is known for its ability to encapsulate a particular application component and all its dependencies thus enabling teams to work independently without requiring underlying infrastructure or the underlying substrate to support every single one of the components they are using. In addition, Docker makes it easy to create lightweight, isolated containers that can work with each other while being very portable.
However, before jumping head first into a container-based microservice strategy, careful planning and implementation is needed. Doing so will help avoid costly rework and other headaches down the road.
Based on proven success using Docker, Flux7’s Aater Suleman shares essential tips and requirements for building, deploying and operating successful microservices on Docker-ized infrastructure.
