Summit Prep: Containers

Containers, as a technology, bridge two critical aspects of modern application development: process (e.g., DevOps) and platform. This means that containers are a part of pretty much any long-term technology vision because they enable changes in how applications are architected, how teams interact, and how development cycles run.

The containers track at Red Hat Summit covers that range of topics, from the operational side of using containers to the architectural side of working with containers in microservices environments.

Challenges in a microservices age: monitoring, logging, and tracing in OpenShift

Even new technologies still need to cover the basics of security and maintenance. While emerging technologies and architectures are more nimble and dynamic by being distributed, that increased complexity affects both security and maintenance. This looks at different options within OpenShift for managing enterprise-scale deployments of containers.

From monolith to containers: How Verizon containerized legacy applications on OpenShift

Unless you’re a startup, you already have existing infrastructure and apps that are central to your business. No matter how cool or innovative new technologies look, there is always the underlying question — how do you move from here to there? This looks at a proof-of-concept environment at Verizon and what lessons they’ve learned on transitioning from monoliths and legacy apps to containers and microservices.

 

A container-platform approach to digital transformation and DevOps

Part of the reason that containers are so closely aligned with DevOps, conceptually, is because changing your technology only gets you so far — you really have to change your processes (your culture). This looks at that union of process and platform as central to digital transformation.
