SKILup Day: Container Orchestration
One goal of DevOps is to have loosely coupled applications—so that they are faster to build, test and deploy—and an important architectural pattern to achieve this goal is containers. A container is a standard unit of software that packages up code and all its dependencies so the application runs quickly and reliably from one computing environment to another.
Containers need to be orchestrated so that they are automatically provisioned, deployed, scaled, and managed so that teams can use containerized applications without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. Engineers use container orchestration anywhere containers exist and automate the life cycle management of containers.
At DevOps Institute’s Container Orchestration SKILup Day you’ll have a chance to meet leading container orchestration and cloud experts and practitioners and hear them tell their stories of how they’ve implemented container orchestration patterns to loosely couple their software products and platforms and increase deployment frequency and accelerate time to value.
