Track: Immutable Infrastructures: Orchestration, Serverless, and More

"Immutable infrastructures represent one of the more elegant ways to deploy scalable, resilient, and service oriented architectures. Isolating compute functions from persistence and treating functionality as the unit of deployment liberates architectures from designing for the availability of a single piece of hardware. Serverless infrastructure takes this concept to the micro-scale; removing the platform from the equation and focusing on the exact code and function needed to fulfill a request.

In this track, we will examine the current and future state of immutable and serverless infrastructures. Experts will share tools, practical strategies, and epic tales of success and defeat in designing immutable and serverless systems that are resilient, scalable, and secure."
