Architecting Your Application for Container Driven Cloud Deployments

Michael Dye, IBM

The rapid growth in the use of Docker containers has demonstrated how using containers to package and deploy applications can change the way teams think about building applications. This has left teams with questions on how to best structure their applications to take advantage of this technology. This session will describe how the "container driven architecture" fits with common application architecture design patterns and ways to incrementally migrate to a container friendly architecture. The session will also provide some background on containers and the growing opportunities to leverage them on common Cloud Computing environments.

Key takeaways:

1. An overview of container technology (with an emphasis on Docker) and cloud related resources that support it.
2. Key application design principles that allow containers to be leveraged well.
3. A comparision of existing application architecture design patterns and recommended techniques for the use of containers.


Michael Dye works in the Advanced Cloud Innovation group at IBM. He has experience developing both legacy enterprise applications and distributed, containerized alternatives. He has recently worked in DevOps groups managing large scale systems. His current team partners with clients to move their applications to Cloud environments.
