Gaming AWS: How Docker helped us deploy faster and cut our operations cost by 70%

Summary -
Hosting costs are an area of major concern for most SaaS companies. These costs drive many important decisions around scale, pricing, and feasibility of a freemium business model.
Running our service on Docker containers has helped us at Shippable reduce deployment time, while also reducing cost of operations on Amazon EC2 by ~70%. Our software development workflow has become more efficient as a result and we can deploy service updates to production several times a day. Best of all, we can pass these savings on to our users. Shippable CEO Avi Cavale will share our learnings and tips on how to 'containerize your hypervisors'.

The CTO series is designed for current and prospective startup CTOs. We will bring in current CTOs and CTO service providers who can talk to the key issues faced by a modern-day CTO. The presentations typically last a half hour, so there is plenty of opportunity to network with other current and future startup CTOs (and a couple of CEO-oriented types who are trying to get smart on the other side of the business).
