Background Bunchball provides a cloud-based software as a service gamification product intended to help companies improve customer loyalty and online engagement using game mechanics.
ChallengesBunchball faced a challenge that many companies face. They were utilizing monolithic applications within their environment, but required the flexibility of a micro services architecture. Because of this, it would take 3 months to take their applications from development to production. Not only was this a complicated process, but it was also prone to failure.
The company wanted to leverage micro services, so that they could update certain pieces of an application, without breaking it entirely.
SolutionsUsing Docker containers Bunchball can now deploy applications in less then a week. When deployed into production they know exactly what the applications is, and all configurations remain the same, as all dependencies are packed within each container. This allows Bunchball to test in QA exactly what will be placed into production.
