This morning on Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast, we discussed how Docker & Microservices complement each other well – like PB&J – to form the foundation for modern application delivery. Enterprises today explore ways of decomposing their monolith and taking advantage of Docker – for both new and legacy applications. What are the benefits of containers and microservices? Why do they go so well together? What are the challenges? What are some best practices for building, deploying and operating microservices on a large-scale Docker-ized infrastructure?
