Going Production with Docker and Swarm

Come learn the major decisions you need to make and some big lessons learned on the way to using Docker Swarm in production. This is an updated top-10 talk from DockerCon on the details of infrastructure and project planning for jumping from Docker for dev/test to a production cluster in the...

Managing the Docker Change - Disrupt and Innovate

MetLife is a really big company, and you can imagine that the pace of change is not always fast. We took our first Docker platformed microservices-based application to production in 5 months. Docker and microservices allowed our development teams to create what once was, for us, inconceivable; a...

The ARM to Z of Multi-Architecture Microservices

The container ecosystem is now home to multiple architectures and operating systems. Working in the isolated environment of your project makes it easy to forget about those platforms you don't use. If we've learned anything from Open Source communities, it's that inclusiveness and cooperation...

The Highs and Lows of Stateful Containers

Tell me about the work that you do today.

I work on the open source CockroachDB database, the product itself, performance, stability of the core system, and then making sure it runs really well in all environments that users and customers want it. There are a lot of people trying to run it on Kubernetes, in a single cluster or across multiple regions. I've had a lot of...

Control Theory In Container Orchestration

Are you talking of automation systems control theory?

It's about applying control theory as an existing engineering rather than accidentally reinventing control theory when you're building automation. I'm going to introduce the fundamentals of control theory, the terminology, and I'll step through some increasingly complex cases in orchestration. Starting with something very simple, maybe...
