Liberty Mutual has moved about 30 percent of their applications to the cloud. We had the chance recently to sit down with the Liberty Mutual Insurance team at their Portsmouth, New Hampshire offices and talk about how they deliver better business outcomes with the cloud and containerization.
Kubernetes has the broadest capabilities of any container orchestrator available today, which adds up to a lot of power and complexity. That can be overwhelming for a lot of people jumping in for the first time – enough to scare people off from getting started.

When you get on a cruise ship or go to a major resort, there’s a lot happening behind the scenes. Thousands of people work to create amazing, memorable experiences, often out of sight. And increasingly, technology helps them make those experiences even better. We sat down recently with Todd Heard, VP of Infrastructure at Carnival Corporation, to find out how technology like Docker helps them create memorable experiences for their guests. Todd and some of his colleagues worked at Disney in the past, so they know a thing or two about memorable experiences.

We had the chance recently to sit down with the Citizens Bank mortgage division and ask them how they’ve incorporated innovation into a regulated and traditional business that is still very much paper-based. The most important lesson they’ve learned: you have to be willing to “fail fearlessly,” but to do that, you also have to minimize the consequences and cost of failure so you can constantly try new ideas.

We started working with Microsoft five years ago to containerize Windows Server applications. Today, many of our enterprise customers run Windows containers in production. We’ve seen customers containerize everything from 15 year old Windows .NET 1.1 applications to new ASP.NET applications. If you haven’t started containerizing Windows applications and running them in production, here are five great reasons to get started: 1.
