Presentation: Enabling Microservices at Orbitz

Time: Tuesday 16:05 - 16:55 / Location: Grand Ballroom A & B

In this talk we will discuss how we enabled decomposition of one of our 500+ system components into a continuously deployed microservice cluster. Our platform is comprised of Apache Mesos/Marathon, Docker, and a number of local services including Consul for service discovery, Logstash for diskless logging, and a custom metrics forwarder to Graphite. Building on this, we'll detail our CI pipeline using Jenkins workflows to build and publish microservices as Docker images, test and deploy via Marathon/Mesos, and automated change tickets. Finally, we'll discuss lessons learned from building our own enterprise PaaS and scaling it out to a large organization.
