    Easily scale application with Docker Compose on Triton by Alexandra White Easily scale application with Docker Compose on Triton

    Docker Compose is the easiest way to get started with dockerized, multi-container applications on Triton's Elastic Docker Host. The Triton Elastic Docker Host automatically runs your containers across the data center for the best performance. Docker Compose makes it easy to start and scale your multi-container applications across the data center.

    Case 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.

    DockerCon video: simplify container orchestration and turbocharge Docker Compose by Casey Bisson DockerCon video: simplify container orchestration and turbocharge Docker Compose

    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.

    The liberation of RethinkDB by Bryan Cantrill

    I have long been a fan of RethinkDB, finding it to hit a sweet spot: developer friendliness (I <3 ReQL!) with Jepsen-grade robustness. This is the same ethos that we aspire to at Joyent, and that RethinkDB was born proprietary but later made open source made it feel like even more of a kindred spirit: I have leapt the chasm twice (first at Sun with what became illumos and then later at Joyent, where we open sourced our entire stack), so I felt I personally understood some of the arduous path that RethinkDB had walked.
