Zenly + Docker 1.12 + 1M teenagers

Zenly is a mobile app that helps you locate your friends in real time. Recently the Zenly app reached the million registered users mark — and half of them signed up in the last three months. In the words of Steeve Morin, VP Engineering of Zenly, “Behold, the power of teenagers.” The rapid growth in users, traffic and data points generated posed new challenges for the Zenly team. As one of the early users of Docker 1.12, the Zenly team shared their experience during the keynote presentation at DockerCon US 2016 in Seattle. Here is the story as told by Steeve, JB Daildo and Corentin Kerisit:   The sudden growth of traffic has been both amazing and a real challenge to scale, not on our production stack, but our analytics pipeline as our app started to generate half a billion Continue reading…

Docker 1.12: Now with Built-in Orchestration!

Three years ago, Docker made an esoteric Linux kernel technology called containerization simple and accessible to everyone. Today, we are doing the same for container orchestration. Container orchestration is what is needed to transition from deploying containers individually on a single host, to deploying complex multi-container apps on many machines. It requires a distributed platform, independent from infrastructure, that stays online through the entire lifetime of your application, surviving hardware failure and software updates. Orchestration is at the same stage today as containerization was 3 years ago. There are two options: either you need an army of technology experts to cobble together a complex ad hoc system, or you have to rely on a company with a lot of experts to take care of everything for you as long as you buy all hardware, services, support, software from them. There is a word for Continue reading…
