Viadeo is the #1 professional social network in France with over 9 million members. In early 2015, we decided to migrate 100% of our physical infrastructure (about 250 servers with a strong backend flavor) to Amazon Web Services. Covering both technical and non-technical topics, this presentation is a real-life account of everything that went right or wrong.

You've heard all about what microservices can do for you. You're convinced. So you build some. Reasoning about your functionality is way easier: these services are so simple! Then you get to the point where you have 35 microservices, and all the monitoring and alerting tactics you used for your monoliths are a complete disaster. Something needs to change and this talk will explain what and how.

Networking is the last major compute infrastructure that is closed or dominated by proprietary vendors. In the last few years the industry has seen a dramatic shift into opening up – from hardware, protocols, and software in general. This talk will examine various efforts within the open networking space and how these may be applicable to your own needs. Will DevOps reach layer 2 & 3? Find out!

James Turnbull (Empatico)
Docker has been one of the runaway successes in infrastructure tools. Some of that is hype, but Docker has seen huge adoption by both developers and operations people. This isn't a talk about marketing or about using Docker. It's a talk about the lessons we've learned from building developer and sysadmin-facing tools.

John Willis (Docker)
This session is a comprehensive overview of Docker. We will cover all the basics of the product. By the end of this session you should be able to install Docker, run Docker containers, and build images. If time permits we will also cover Docker Machine, Compose, and Swarm.

Finding slow nodes in large clusters is akin to finding a needle in a haystack; hence, manual identification of slow/bad nodes is not practical. The focus of this talk is to present a statistical approach to automatically detect slow/bad nodes, thereby mitigating user impact.

To improve developer productivity and resource utilization – and to enable enterprise-scale, cross-project visibility and shorter time to market – many organizations are working to automate and orchestrate the entire tool chain across the end-to-end delivery pipeline. In this session, attendees will learn how a $40 billion company (Huawei) did just that.
