ITA Tech Talk: Microservices CI Pipeline for Docker

The world of containers (the lightweight virtualization technology that may finally deliver on the "develop once run anywhere" promise) has picked up a head of steam for both developers and IT operations. With more than 12 billion downloads from Docker Hub, the Docker community and Docker, Inc. have taken a relatively obscure variant of Linux Containers to more than 14 million host machines in less than 4 years.

While the first users of containers were typically software developers using them for the purposes of local development and testing, there is now a rapidly growing interest in the IT Operations community to simplify, secure and support microservice applications with containers in production. Docker Enterprise Edition is a platform designed to bridge the DevOps gap in the new world of container-base applications.
