Docker Containers

We’re always on the lookout for new technologies that can help us create high performing systems that help our clients create agile IT operations and development efforts. When trying to choose software application-development technologies, a key concern is the ability to deploy applications typically in any environment without overhead.

Docker really does let you “Build once, configure once and run anywhere.”


And while it’s a new technology, it has now been proven to be highly effective in a variety of environments.

DOCKER & MULTI-TENANCY

A solar panel organization asked us to developed an end-to-end Internet of Things project that received sensor data and used that to provide reports to the end-users of the service provider. Part way through the project, the client saw a business opportunity and asked us to support multiple service providers.

At this point we had the option to rearchitect the application and institute major changes that would be both time-consuming and expensive for our client. And the end result would be a far more complicated, rigid and difficult to maintain codebase.

However, we were familiar with Docker because we were investigating using it for setting up our internal development environments and hence used docker for our solution.

OUR SOLUTION FOR MULTI-TENANCY: DOCKER CONTAINERS

QUICK AND EASY MULTI-TENANCY

ISOLATED ENVIRONMENTS FOR EACH PROVIDER AT LOW COSTS

NO MAJOR APPLICATION REWRITES

DOCKER & DEV FLOWS

DOCKER CONTINUOUS DEPLOYMENT PROVIDES:

  • Excellent mechanism for low overhead virtualization
  • Isolated environments to be created in a single machine without imposing a performance overhead
  • A multi-tier production environment mimic on a single machine where each tier still gets their own isolated environment, and dedicated IP address and port

REFERENCE ARCHITECTURE USING DOCKER:

  • Our reference architecture allows developers to test code in a production-like environment at a high pace
  • Minimize bugs that occur due to differences in local and QA environments
  • Makes it easier for the developers to identify and fix bugs that occur due to environment mismatch
