It’s Back… The Contribute and Collaborate track returns to DockerCon 2018

A significant number of Docker early adopters, advanced container users and Open Source lovers come to DockerCon to contribute to open source projects and collaborate on technical system implementations. Last year, these activities were taking place at the Moby Summit scheduled on the last day of the conference. Listening to feedback from attendees who expressed interest in participating in such activities earlier in the week, we’ve decided to bring back the Contribute & Collaborate track to the main conference days! The goal of this track is to raise awareness and educate users around the upstream components of the Docker Platform, provide a path for new contributors and unleash new opportunities for innovation and collaboration within the broader Cloud Native and Open Source communities. This track is organized in 4 half days (one for each of the categories below). Each will start Continue reading…

Modernizing Java Apps with Docker

[This post was written by Sophia Parafina and Arun Gupta.] Modernizing Traditional Applications or MTA was one of the themes at DockerCon EU 2017. Traditional applications are typically built a number of  years ago but are critical to business operations. The developer and operational skill set to maintain the application may be hard to find. The code base can be difficult to maintain, if it is available at all. The team that wrote the original app may not even be around. The applications go into maintenance mode, which may mean they are patched regularly for vulnerabilities. Any revisions to the code can take significant number of hours to test and deploy, so updates are infrequent. It can also hold back infrastructure improvements as dependency management becomes a huge pain point. Any modern application needs a faster delivery time that can Continue reading…

Intesa Sanpaolo Builds a Resilient Foundation for Banking With Docker Enterprise Edition

Intesa Sanpaolo is the largest bank in Italy and maintains a network of over 5,000 banking branches across Europe and North Africa. With nearly 19 million customers and €739 billion in assets, Intesa Sanpaolo is an integral part of the financial fabric and as such, Italian regulations require that they keep their business and applications online to serve their customers. As a bank that can trace its roots back to the early 1800s, the majority of Intesa’s edge applications are still monolithic and hard to move between data centers, never mind migrate to the cloud. Diego Braga, Intesa IT Infrastructure Architect, looked to Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) at the recommendation of his Kiratech business partner Lorenzo Fontana to improve their application availability, portability and add cloud friendly application delivery. With Docker EE, Intesa was able to consolidate infrastructure by nearly 60%, thus saving significant money over Continue reading…
