Nuxeo is really proud to participate in the 2016 O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference: Bridging business and technology. Thierry Delprat, our Chief Technology Officer, will present our new application factory infrastructure.
Make plans to join us for the second O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference from April 11–13, 2016 at the Hilton Midtown in New York, 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 clearly 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 the design choices made for the Arken open source project and explain how this infrastructure was built using technologies like Docker, CoreOS, Fleet, and Gogeta.
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 data-less containers.
