At last year’s DockerCon EU, Simon Eskildsen, Infrastructure Engineer at Shopify, presented a talk titled “From This-Looks-Fun to Production” that was one of our favorites from the conference.
This year, Simon will present a talk on “Resilient Routing and Discovery” at DockerCon 2015 in San Francisco on June 22-23. Here is the abstract for his talk at DockerCon 2015:
With a distributed production container deployment with thousands of containers they need to discover and chat with each other. With Docker, creating a highly decoupled microservice architecture is easier than ever, making service discovery and routing a hot topic. If not executed properly, such a system can easily become a reliability nightmare with your service discovery cluster becoming a single point of failure or a single unreliable service compromising the performance or availability of the entire system. With experience from a Docker deployment of thousands of containers, this talk covers the patterns for success to engineer a distributed and resilient routing and discovery system at scale.
You do not want to miss out on hearing Simon present at DockerCon 2015.
Below is the abstract, slide deck and recorded video from Simon’s keynote presentation on the “From This-Looks-Fun to Production” at DockerCon 2014 EU:
Since July 2014 Shopify’s been serving thousands of requests per second of production web traffic from Docker containers. This was an 8 month effort, with multiple pivots of direction from the team—and we’re only getting started. This talk covers the lessons learned through the trial and error of an in-flight architecture redesign, spanning hundreds of hosts, as well as the technical vision of the future of our platform.
