May 9, 2017Case Study: Wearable Tech powered by Docker and Triton by Luc Juggery, Co-Founder, TRAXxs
High-quality IoT apps can be challenging to build and scale with traditional monolithic services architectures. The backends serving millions of device end points are often plagued by server-side concurrency bottlenecks generated by synchronous server threads. Microservices built with Node.js are being used to solve this design problem, primarily due to its asynchronous event-based architecture and high concurrency characteristics.
May 4, 2017DockerCon video: simplify container orchestration and turbocharge Docker Compose by Casey Bisson
Getting started with container orchestration and scheduling systems, like Kubernetes, is relatively simple, but as your deployment grows it gets complicated fast. There are ways to reduce that complexity, and even eliminate cluster management. We will share a simpler approach that leverages Docker Compose (in ways you may not know are possible) and the Autopilot Pattern for application micro-orchestration. The Autopilot Pattern works with any container scheduler, but for many applications and use cases we’ve found that this design pattern, combined with smart use of Docker Compose, provides the most elegant and scalable solution.
