People typically think of Docker for building new, microservice oriented apps but what about the other 99% of your apps which are monolithic, unwieldy, and difficult to maintain? These traditional apps can also benefit from the same properties of Docker containers – making these apps easier to maintain over time, migrate to cloud and more secure.
This talk features Rohit Tatachar from Microsoft internal IT (MS IT) explaining their recent project using Docker Enterprise Edition to convert application workloads to containers and migrate them to Azure. During this process MS IT was was able to increase application density per server without any impact to application performance. Attend this session to gain pragmatic on how to approach a modernization project.
Docker is an open platform for developers and system administrators to build, ship and run distributed applications. With Docker, IT organizations shrink application delivery from months to minutes, frictionlessly move workloads between data centers and the cloud and can achieve up to 20X greater efficiency in their use of computing resources. Inspired by an active community and by transparent, open source innovation, Docker containers have been downloaded more than 700 million times and Docker is used by millions of developers across thousands of the world’s most innovative organizations, including eBay, Baidu, the BBC, Goldman Sachs, Groupon, ING, Yelp, and Spotify. Docker’s rapid adoption has catalyzed an active ecosystem, resulting in more than 180,000 “Dockerized” applications, over 40 Docker-related startups and integration partnerships with AWS, Cloud Foundry, Google, IBM, Microsoft, OpenStack, Rackspace, Red Hat and VMware.
