The container ecosystem is growing rapidly, and there is a rush to adopt this technology even as vendors standardize. Many enterprise implementations run the risk of falling into the golden hammer anti-pattern by applying it whenever and wherever possible. Join this talk for a deep dive to establish a common taxonomy and definition of containers, investigate practical use cases, and identify key components and decisions points for creating a container strategy. Containers are often treated like virtual machines, when there are so many richer capabilities possible.

Participants will learn what using containers solves—and doesn’t solve; key concepts for architecting containers and effective layering decisions; tried and true architectural techniques for working with container-driven architectures versus new tools and their value (PaaS, orchestration, managers); managing and maintaining containers (tools can’t replace strategy even if they reduce complexity—it’s never as simple as “just change a layer”); and practical tips from the field.
