Agile + DevOps West 2021 Concurrent Session : DevOps Engineering with containers to enable microservices


Wednesday, June 9, 2021 - 1:15pm to 2:15pm

DevOps Engineering with containers to enable microservices

Are you trying to follow the industry and shift from a monolithic system to a widely distributed, scalable, and highly available microservice architecture? Maybe you already shifted to Agile delivery models, but you’re struggling to keep up with the rate of change in the technologies of these systems. Your DevOps team has thrown a bunch of automation in place to help this, but it seems to be creating a bigger, different mess that results in broken systems that don’t work together.

To succeed, you need to properly design and implement your delivery process with the right technology stack to support your software architecture, then structure teams around that process. We call this DevOps Engineering and in this talk I’ll show you examples of how we assembled Kubernetes, Docker, Helm, and Jenkins to enable our teams to produce secure, reliable, and highly available microservices.
