Docker is increasingly used in production environments to run applications at scale. Container orchestration with Docker Swarm, Apache Mesos and Kubernetes helps with deployment, scaling and failovers of containerized application services. Our recent research focuses on optimizing deployments of containers with respect to optimal resource planning and scaling. This includes validating the actual deployment architecture for ensuring application availability and functionality.

In this webcast you will learn:

  • How healthy is my Docker environment for scalability?
  • What are the critical components in my environment that pose risks for scalability?
  • Is my architecture well-suited for scaling?
  • How can the architecture be improved so it scales?
