Title:
WebSphere Application Server and Docker: Delivering on the Promise of Containers
Stream:
DevOps (5)
Speakers:
David Currie
Abstract:
Containers promise to provide the ability to take a lightweight image from development and deploy it at high density in production. In this session, you'll see how the combination of WebSphere Application Server Liberty profile and Docker can deliver on that promise. After an overview of containerization and Docker, the session will demonstrate how quickly you can get an application up-and-running with a WebSphere Application Server image, and how a continuous delivery pipeline could be used to take that image through to production—whether on-premise or in the cloud—without the pain of pushing around multi-gigabyte virtual images and without the danger of any more "it works for me" moments. We'll also demonstrate the usage of WebSphere Application Server in the IBM Containers service on Bluemix.
