1. How Swisscom uses Docker & Flocker to deliver stateful services by Dominik Suter, Senior System Enginner at Swisscom
As Cloud Foundry is designed for stateless Apps and does not yet support stateful services like databases. Swisscom decided to ship this services dockerized and based on ClusterHQ’s Flocker. To achieve the enterprise readiness and the targeted elasticity for Cloud services, a couple of components have been built around it to connect the CF and Flocker/Docker world together. A talk about the story of Docker and Flocker in Swisscom's Cloud Project - Orchestration and System Engineering at the bleeding edge of technology.
2. CF experience in the field by Patrik Nagel from Pivotal
The adoption of open PaaS solutions and new application architectures with microservices are ramping up quickly across industries. I would like to share my experience with Cloud Foundry outside of lab environments. Implementing a PaaS in an enterprise to leverage its values also implies change and different concepts. Let's talk about challenges from application architectures to operations aspects and where Docker meets Cloud Foundry.
Patrik Nagel is a Field Engineer working at Pivotal in Zurich. A technology enthusiast with a broad experience from software engineering to IT operations. His mission is to enable enterprises to build and run cloud native applications with the power of Cloud Foundry as an independent application platform. He loves talking but also hands-on about architecture, code, integration and the new powers brought to developers and operators by using Cloud Foundry.
3. Docker-record — A Semi-Automated Approach from Container Setup to Dockerfile by Jürgen Cito, Uni. of Zürich
Getting your infrastructure to work properly in your Docker container is an iterative process that involves inital setup, tuning of configuration parameters, and eventual (infrastructure) testing in a trial and error fashion. Translating all the changes made to a container into a Dockerfile to allow for reproducible and transparent infrastructure is often a painful process. With docker-record we want to address this issue and provide a semi-automated approach that takes us from getting our infrastructure up and running in our container to the reproducible and transparent definition of infastructure in a Dockerfile.
