Docker isn't just for microservices. This article and video show how Docker can containerize a legacy application, making it possible to deploy it to a different flavor of Linux

Best practices for getting to continuous deployment faster and with dramatic results in reduced outage minutes, development costs, and QA testing cycles. Brought to you by Rainforest QA.

About a year ago Senior Linux engineer Jose De la Rosa had heard so much Docker and container-mania that he thought he’d find out what the fuss was all about.  Jose started looking around for an app within Dell that he could containerize and came across Dell’s OpenManage Server Administrator (OMSA).  In case you’re wondering, OMSA is an in house application used to manage and monitor Dell’s PowerEdge servers.  Rather than being a micro-service based application, OMSA is an old school legacy app.

To hear how Jose tackled the task, why, and what he learned, check out the following video (also take a look at the deck below that he presented at the Austin Docker meet up).


Here’s the deck Jose presented at the Austin Docker Meetup back in September.
