Nuxeo is really happy to be again part of the next Docker Meetup in New York City.

Make plans to join us for this meetup on September 14, 2016 at Cisco Systems offices in New York City, NY.

Multi-tenancy is the classical approach for delivering SaaS applications. However, multi-tenancy at the application level comes with a significant limitation in terms of processing isolation, efficient hardware utilization and advanced per-tenant configuration.

Because the Nuxeo Platform is designed to be deeply configurable and extensible, the classic multi-tenant model was inadequate for Nuxeo and our customers.

In this session, you will see a new application factory infrastructure built to avoid the limitations of multi-tenancy, using customized Docker containers deployed on demand for each tenant, while still being able to manage this as a single application. We will also describe why we chose Docker or Gogeta to build our open source project "Arken" and its architecture choices. We will show how it has evolved alongside the Docker ecosystem by taking advantage of the new volume and network plugins.

This presentation will also show you how this new container-based application factory model optimizes the hosting costs by providing high-density container hosting on top of AWS EC2 and passivation / on-demand activation of containers.
