GOTO Amsterdam (June 17-19, 2015) is a vendor independent international software development conference with more that 50 top speakers and 500 attendees. The conference covers topics such as AngularJS, Disruption, Docker, Drones, Elasticsearch, Hadoop, Microservices & Scrum.

Presentation: "Docker as the Building Block for Datacenter-Scale Applications"

Track: Docker / Time: Friday 14:30 - 15:20 / Location: Effectenbeurszaal

As you grow the number of machines in a cluster, you also grow its complexity. Docker is great on a single machine, or small handful of machines, but can it be used to build applications that scale across an entire datacenter or cloud? Can it be used to deliver large-scale distributed systems, including datacenter services like Hadoop, Cassandra and Kafa?

In this talk, Benjamin Hindman, Co-creator of Apache Mesos, will explain how leading companies like Twitter bring high degrees of automation to large container-driven clusters. He will also explain how to build new distributed systems using Docker.

In this talk, Ben will take you beyond managing individual machines and show you how create highly-elastic, highly-available systems that manage failures, reduce operational complexity, increase utilization, and create business flexibility.
