A convergence of forces in SaaS, IoT, cloud, and mobile have placed unprecedented requirements on businesses to accelerate innovation to meet those rapidly changing preferences. The big don’t eat the small, the fast eat the slow. The industry has offered several solutions to this acceleration problem – from working harder to outsourcing and devops, but none of those solutions have really offered the levels of acceleration needed. The reason: there is too much friction slowing the art of the possible. Docker and MuleSoft remove friction in the innovation process, from ideation all the way to deployment. MuleSoft provides a tops…

Moving a monolithic application to a modern cloud architecture can be difficult and often result in a greenfield development effort. However, it is possible to move towards a cloud architecture using Docker Enterprise Edition with no code changes and gain choice , security and operational agility in the process. Part 3 of the series begins the modernization process. I’ll take one aspect of the current application and break it out into a microservice. As written, the application writes to the database directly, but direct writes to the database can easily overwhelm the application by a large number of requests. One solution is to…

Moving a monolithic application to a modern cloud architecture can be difficult and often results in a greenfield development effort. However, it is possible to move towards a cloud architecture using Docker Enterprise Edition with no code changes and gain portability, security and efficiency in the process.   In the first post in this series, we discussed how you don’t need to do a full re-architecture of your application to microservices when using Docker Enterprise Edition. In the second installment of the series, I go into the details of containerization of the application. This process builds containers using the application code as-is. I’ll follow three simple…

Moving a monolithic application to a modern cloud architecture can be difficult and often result in a greenfield development effort. However, it is possible to move towards a cloud architecture using Docker Enterprise Edition with no code changes and gain portability, security and efficiency in the process. Containerizing a monolithic application is a great starting point for modernizing application architecture.In many cases this can be done with no code changes at all.  From there, breaking down the application into smaller components makes it easier to deploy updates, introduce new components and manage scale. This new video series covers modernization for Java…

 Docker Enterprise Edition (EE)  is the container platform for modernizing your existing applications, and running them in the cloud or on-premises. You can take monoliths and run them in containers with no code changes, and that gets you portability, security and efficiency. Running in Docker is also a great starting point for modernizing the application architecture. You can breaking down the monolith into smaller, independent components which makes it easier to deploy updates, manage scale and introduce new technologies. This new video series covers app modernization, for .NET developers and architects. It walks through the evolution of a monolithic ASP.NET 3.5 app…

Containerizing a single legacy application with Docker Enterprise Edition (EE) can be quite simple and immediately makes the application more portable, scalable, and easier to manage and update. Taking this application to production requires additional planning and collaboration with security teams, performance testing and likely requires detailed operations and disaster recovery plans. This part of the process often has little to do with the technology but with the changes to the organization and governance model. At DockerCon Europe, I presented a talk on the best practices and processes for taking a containerized legacy app or set of apps from a…

Today we start releasing a new video series in Docker’s Modernize Traditional Apps (MTA) program, aimed at IT Pros who manage, maintain and deploy Java apps. The video series shows you how to move a Java EE 7 application written to run on Wildfly 3, move it to a Docker container and deploy it to a scalable, highly-available environment in the cloud – without any changes to the app. This is a 5 part video series in Docker’s Modernize Traditional Apps (MTA) program, aimed at Java IT Pros. The video series shows you how to move a Java EE app on JBoss Wildfly…

In April of this year, Docker announced the Modernize Traditional Apps (MTA) POC program with partners Avanade, Booz Allen, Cisco, HPE and Microsoft. The MTA program is designed to help IT teams flip the 80% maintenance to 20% innovation ratio on it’s head. The combination of Docker Enterprise Edition (EE), services and infrastructure into a turnkey program delivers portability, security and efficiency for the existing app portfolio to drive down total costs and make room for innovation like cloud strategies and new app development. The program starts by packaging of existing apps into isolated containers, providing the opportunity to migrate them…
