Bringing Your Applications into the Future with Habitat
DevOps, Containers, Open Cloud Software Architecture Theatre
What are we going to do about all these legacy applications? Kubernetes, Docker or Server Core? With Habitat it doesn’t matter anymore! As companies make the transition from traditional IT infrastructure to cloud-native container platforms packaging, deploying and managing applications becomes the focus for developers and operators. Having a consistent approach to managing dependencies and building applications brings stability to CI/CD pipelines and frees developers to prioritize on features. Automated, repeatable builds with immutable artifacts and consistent management of any application on any platform allow operators to focus on stability and speed. Chef's Habitat project brings all of this together in an open source automation platform that enables modern application teams to build, deploy, and run any application in any environment - from traditional data-centers to containerized microservices. This presentation provided an overview of the benefits of Habitat and a live demo of applications being built and deployed on traditional operating systems across Docker and Kubernetes, seamlessly.
