DockerCon 2016 Videos: Use Case Track

The Use Case track at DockerCon 2016 covered practical applications of Docker. Speakers shared their experiences implementing Docker with technical details and advice on implementation. Watch all of the awesome talks (and check out the slides) from the Use Case Track at DockerCon 2016 below!

Announcing (Even) More Speakers for DockerCon 2016

A quick note about the selection process: this year the Review Committee reviewed 570+ proposals using a double blind process, which means proposals were reviewed just by their abstract, outline and takeaways. From the initial review, we selected the top 100 proposals and began conversations with the authors of the most promising talks. We’re not quite done yet, but we expect to publish the schedule soon! If your proposal was not accepted, please consider submitting for a local meetup or another conference. Once again, we’d like to thank everyone who took the time to both submit and review the proposals. Without further ado, here are the next round of DockerCon speakers selected by the DockerCon Community Review Committee.

Docker Cloud to the Rescue

3Blades offers data science collaboration services. In addition to offering task based project management features, 3Blades also allows users to spawn custom workspace, model and data source instances within the context of their projects. A variety of resource configurations are available for different instance types. For example, a user can launch an RStudio IDE workspace with a 1 vCPU and 2 GB of memory and another Hadoop datasource instance with 2vCPU and 4 GB of memory. Docker is a natural fit to enable this type of flexibility. It didn’t take very long for our team to go ‘all in’ with Docker. We were thrilled when we saw the added benefit of being able to quickly deploy our application stack after green builds with Continuous Integration tools. However, we struggled with a few issues when running multiple instances of our services, Continue reading…

Biogen: Data Science and Docker Swarm

written by Theo Platt, Associate Director, Biogen and Karl Gutwin, Senior Data Architect, Biogen The Data Sciences department at Biogen has been using Docker and watching the (r)evolution for a couple of years. Last year, as our experience with Docker grew and the use cases expanded, we built our own early Docker Swarm cluster with homegrown orchestration capabilities. Through cutting-edge science and medicine, Biogen discovers, develops and delivers worldwide innovative therapies for people living with serious neurological, autoimmune and rare diseases. Founded in 1978, Biogen is one of the world’s oldest independent biotechnology companies and patients worldwide benefit from its leading multiple sclerosis and innovative hemophilia therapies.

#SwarmWeek: HealthDirect Uses Docker Swarm for Blue Green Deployments

  Healthdirect Australia provides all Australians with access to health information and advice, no matter where they live, or what time of the day or night it is, they can talk to a health professional, find trusted advice online about the appropriate care for their health issue and find the closest local services that are open when they need them. Our Docker journey originally started with the open source edition and early on we invested in building out our own tooling to support infrastructure and application provisioning. Recently we transitioned to Docker Datacenter consisting of Engine, Trusted Registry and Universal Control Plane (which comes with Swarm). Having an integrated end-to-end platform with management, plugins and ecosystem integrations available right out of the box was the deciding factor for us. Docker Datacenter provides us with a solid foundation for our application Continue reading…

“Everything agnostic” is the only requirement for Containers as a Service (CaaS)

With Containers as a Service (CaaS) IT organizations and developers can work together in a secured and managed application environment to build, ship and run their applications anywhere. In last week’s blog post, we introduced Containers as a Service and discussed how it can provide a modern platform. In this post, we discuss in more detail the characteristics that uniquely power CaaS. The reason developers don’t adopt locked down platforms is because software development is an exercise in both discovery and creation. It is critical to keep this in mind when considering application platforms.
