ECS Digital exhibited and sponsored at this year’s main Docker event Dockercon 2017. You may have found our stand within the main exhibition hall right next to the Docker stand. The whole event was very well catered – especially the afterparty that had an arcade games theme!
This year, Docker announced several key messages related to its platform:
Kubernetes will be the second option along with the already supported, Docker Swarm. This aims to simplify the life of a lot of users who were struggling with the choice between the two frameworks.
Docker has released an improved version of the framework for the transformation of traditional applications into microservices. Tools in this framework are able to perform an heuristic analysis of a target system and replicate those into containers. However, this is a valid approach only for certain types of applications with some final touches still being required.
The ECS Digital stand
ECS Digital was represented by 6 of our own people at this event including our Managing Director, Andy Cureton, as well as our Head of Channels, Phil Drouet.
We were busy with visitors asking us many questions regarding what we do, where we’re based and what our history is. We presented ourselves as DevOps specialist with Docker being one of our major areas of expertise.
On screen, you could see our E2E solution within the DevOps pipeline area as well as our own internally developed model to apply MTA for macro applications.
Other interesting stands in Expo
There was plenty of interesting stuff going on throughout DockerCon. We had a good time catching up with our colleagues, trying to exchange ideas and getting to know their products and services better.
Thank you to all those who came to our booth to say hi – it was great to speak to such a large variety of people. We are looking forward to the next event!
Do get in touch if you’re interested in discussing how we can help you with Docker or if you have any questions for us. We’d love the chance to discuss how we can help you in your adoption of DevOps.
