Lifecycle Management of Docker Clusters


Containerized applications are typically running on clusters that have to be deployed, managed, scaled, upgraded, torn down, and redeployed. The lifecycle of a Swarm or Kubernetes cluster is an especially important responsibility for Operations teams that have responsibility over hybrid- and multi-cloud environments.

In this session, we will demonstrate a new tool for managing the lifecycle of a Docker and Kubernetes environment. Built for Docker Enterprise, this tool enables enterprises to automate initial platform deployment as well as common Day 2 and Day n operational tasks. We will highlight how this is used for your initial deployment, but also how it can be leveraged for backups and restores, scaling cluster up or down, and also how it can be extended for multi-cluster use cases.
