Q&A: Lessons Learned from Delploying Docker into Production

Last week, I had the pleasure of hosting a webinar sharing everything from tips and tricks to challenges and watch outs from our experience deploying and running more than 4,000 Docker containers in production. I personally especially enjoyed the productive Q&A session.

In case you missed out last week, you can still watch the recorded version here. And because you all asked so many really good questions, I've compiled the answers to some of the most asked Docker questions right here.

Top 5 Exciting Announcements From DockerCon

As DockerCon sold out in advance, we know there were many folks who weren’t able to attend the conference. As fun and exciting as it was, there were a handful of announcements that topped our list of highlights from the DockerCon 2015 experience. One of the biggest learnings for us was the incredibly large proportion of companies who were well familiar with Docker but hadn’t yet deployed it into production. Docker announced plenty of tools and resources that will definitely help move that needle.

Open-Sourcing our Docker Images

Open-Sourcing our Docker Images

We're now on day two of DockerCon, we've talked to hundreds of people, and one of the most common questions is how we've designed our containers and made it possible to easily run thousands of them in production. To answer this question, today we’re exicted to announce that we’ve open-sourced all of our build and runtime Docker images.

At Modulus we've been making use of Docker as our core containerization technology for nearly a year. During this time we’ve developed a standard for multi-language app deployment including Node.js, Java, PHP, and Nginx static sites. Not only does open-sourcing our containers allow us to share what we’ve learned with the community, but allows our customers to see exactly how their applications run in production.
