Minimum Viable Docker
This was my first talk as an engineer, back in 2017, when Babylon Health was running containerized services without tools like Kubernetes. That system worked very well for us, until Babylon started scaling really, really fast. When that happened, we moved to Kubernetes.
It is now 2019 and we are running hundreds of services on top of Kubernetes in Europe, Asia and America.
While Kubernetes and Mesos are all the rage, you don’t necessarily need a complex orchestration layer to start using and benefiting from Docker. We will present how Babylon Health is running its dockerised AI microservices in production, pros and cons, and what we have in store for the future.
