Implementing the Pattern with ContainerPilot and Triton Container Naming Service (CNS)

Robby Andrews- Joyent DevOps Advocate

One of the most confusing challenges developers and operators face when building modern applications is how to design them for easy deployment and scaling. The most critical factor in that is how to automate the process of connecting the components of the application together, and doing so in a way that works on our laptops as well as it does in production.

Robby will demonstrate how to solve those problems in the context of a Node.js application backed by MySQL and load balanced with Nginx. All the components are running in multiple Docker containers on Triton, and use ContainerPilot ( to automate discovery and configuration. We're using Docker Compose to deploy the application and scale it across the data center on Triton. Finally, this post also demonstrates how to use Triton Container Name Service ( (CNS), the free and automated global DNS built-in to Triton, to make it easy for users on the internet to find our application.

He enjoys building products and services that solve real problems and make life easier for customers. Rahul holds and MS in Robotics from Carnegie Mellon University.

The Future of Infrastructure--------------------------------------
We're rapidly moving on from a world of bare metal servers in a colo to cloud services, VM and containers. In this talk I'll give you my predictions for what the future looks like and how to gear up for the new world order, what skills you'll need and the tooling that will prevail.

Serverless, Node.js & mobile for the Enterprise

The Synchro mobile application development platform allows enterprise developers to quickly and easily build apps that present to end users as native mobile apps, but where all of the app code actually runs on the server. The resulting apps are easier to create, easier to integrate, easier to update, and more secure than those created using
other mobile app platforms.

This presentation will cover the ways in which Synchro has used Docker to make it easier for customers to deploy and scale their Synchro solutions. In particular, it will focus on Synchro Lab's implementation of the Autopilot Pattern using ContainerPilot, providing app-centric micro-orchestration that works seamlessly and automatically, regardless of the orchestration solution the customer uses.
