June 4, 2014—Austin, TX |Flux7, an IT consultancy focused on delivering cloud migration, development and optimization solutions using DevOps-based approaches, today announced the company will co-present at the first annual DockerCon with its client Auto.com. The two companies will share key learnings and best practices at DockerCon, a two-day Docker-centric event that is organized by Docker Inc. The sold out conference is taking place June 9 - 10, 2014, at The Westin Market Street in San Francisco.
One of Flux7’s services is helping organizations to determine how Docker -- an open-source engine that automates the deployment of any application as a lightweight, portable, self-sufficient container that will run virtually anywhere to help increase web developer productivity and operations -- can improve their development and operations processes. This boutique solution developed by Flux7 includes assessment, implementation and support packages customized to fit the needs of both growing and established enterprises. More information and case studies can be found here.
At DockerCon, Aater Suleman, CEO of Flux7, and Kevin Ready, general manager of Auto.com, a Classified Ventures property, will team up for their talk entitled “Lessons from Using Docker to Improve Web Developer Productivity.” The session will explore best practices for using Docker.
During the presentation, a reference design will also be shared to demonstrate how developers can test code in a production-like environment without extensive hardware and resource investment, as well as minimize bugs that occur due to a mismatch in local, QA and production environments.
“Innovative, high performance Web, SaaS and mobile businesses like Google and Auto.com are seeing the great advantages that Docker can bring, both in efficiencies and in the ability to dynamically adjust their development environments,” Mr. Suleman said.
DockerCon is an event that will feature topics and content about all aspects of Docker. Docker is experiencing explosive growth by delivering on the twin promises “Build Once … Run Anywhere” and “Configure Once … Run Anything,” Its impact is successfully cutting across DevOps, PaaS and hybrid cloud environments. DockerCon will also focus on container-centric approaches to application creation, deployment and management, as well as the impact of these new technologies on the world of virtualization.
