Why Managing Containers Changes the Game for Cloud Applications
Date: Tuesday, April 14th at 8:00am PDT / 11:00am EDT
If you think VMs and containers are similar, think again. For those IT organizations currently running VMs, whether locally or in the cloud, and looking into starting new development in the cloud employing containers, the entire lifecycle matters. Unlike VMs, managing containers and microservices starts when the first code is written, and continues through monitoring and testing in production. Teams, especially DevOps teams, need to know what is different about building and deploying containers, and how they have to be assembled, managed, and monitored in production.
Join Peter Varhol of Technology Strategy Research and Mike Condy of Quest to find out why teams are increasingly using containers, and what effect these decisions have on their operational strategies. They examine the uptake of containers as a development and deployment environment in the cloud, and how containers using Dockers and Kubernetes change application architectures for new applications. It offers actionable advice on what teams must do in order to achieve long term success with container and microservice architectures.
Attendees will learn:
- What it means to re-architect an application using containers and microservices.
- How the container architecture changes management and monitoring when the application is in production.
- How to plan a strategy to manage and monitor container-based applications in production.
