Containers and Microservices

Room: 
Room 3
Time Slot: 
2:40pm

Many current trends in software development and deployment are based around the concept of microservices, small independent services interconnected via application programming interfaces (APIs).

The concept of immutable infrastructure is another area of application life cycle that’s gaining attention. In immutable infrastructure, we deploy immutable components that are replaced each time we deploy instead of in-place upgrades.

In this session, we’ll discuss the use of containers as a delivery mechanism for microservices following the immutable infrastructure paradigm as well as how to integrate into a development workflow. We will also discuss how these ideas are being applied to new delivery mechanisms at the operating system level.
