Track: Continuously Deploying Containers in Production


Day of week:

Containerization is changing how organizations are deploying applications to production. The smaller footprint enables faster and more frequent deployments while providing an easy path to embracing the principles of immutable infrastructure. However to make the most of containers, new tools are required to simplify the building, deployment, and monitoring of large scale work loads. In this track we focus on continuous delivery of containers, the challenges they pose, techniques used in industry and the ecosystem of tools available.

The "immutable servers" concept is a new approach to deployment. Instead of upgrading your servers, replace them with new ones. Likewise, instead of updating the code running on those servers, deploy it from scratch on new servers, and throw the old ones away.

Sounds extreme? In a world of physical machines, probably. But when your servers are virtual machines that can be deployed in minutes, or containers that can be deployed in seconds, this pattern becomes possible, and even...

Containers provide an impressive list of new benefits to a tech org, but it can sometimes be difficult to explain them to the uninitiated. This session explains the benefits of containerization in the context of a real-world open-source deployment of a Go web service using Terraform, CoreOS, Docker, Fleet, and Vulcan on AWS. We'll discuss testing, integration, canary deploys and how we achieve 20 minute development cycles (from request to production deployment) with zero downtime.

The coming wave of containerization has pushed the principals of immutablity down to the application level. This has increased the velocity of deployment but also brought new and complex orchestration challenges. Terraform is a powerful tool for managing infrastructure based on the principals of immutable infrastructure while Consul provides a distributed runtime for the datacenter and provides service discovery, configuration and coordination.

In this talk we show how they can be...

Yelp Docker Mesos SmartStack PaaS

Paasta is Yelp's platform for running services, built on Docker, Mesos, Marathon, SmartStack, git, and Jenkins. It provides all the neat features you'd expect from a PaaS, but provides pragmatic solutions to real-world problems. Learn how we migrated from our legacy deployments to Paasta, enabled self-service creation of new services, and addressed other hard problems like monitoring, testing, safe deploys in a hybrid, multi-region, multi-environment world.

Containers are changing the software development landscape and accelerating the adoption of DevOps. Containers are deployed rapidly, form a loosely connected network, and are often ephemeral. In the hands of a skilled DevOps professional, these tools are producing tremendous value by delivering functionality at break neck speed. From the perspective of the CISOs office, these new systems are terrifying and need to brought under control quickly or stopped altogether. Attempts to use...
