Converting a Traditional App to Containers: How CrowdStar Built an Effective Ecosystem on OpenStack

In this talk, mobile game developer CrowdStar will explain how and why they moved toward containers after switching to an OpenStack infrastructure provider, how refactoring a monolithic application to micro-services can be a challenge and the benefits that they hope to achieve by leveraging containers. They will also outline how they chose the best tools for the job (i.e. Kubernetes, Rancher, Prometheus) and how they stitched them together to orchestrate this containerized environment. This talk is full of practical, actionable information based on almost two years of experimentation, and solutions found to the most common challenges (including CI / CD) currently faced by DevOps departments seeking to refactor apps. Finally, Internap will lift the hood on adapting an existing OpenStack cloud to facilitate customer application containerization and operation.
