Jireh, a global provider of power semiconductors, doubled wafer output by containerizing apps with Docker Enterprise.

Doubling Factory Output by Updating Legacy Applications with Docker Enterprise

Challenge


Jireh needed to modernize its aging architecture and retire 25+ year old HP UX servers while simultaneously increasing wafer production capacity without downtime.

Solution


Jireh containerized and upgraded legacy Java-based applications with Docker Enterprise and migrated the apps to new servers.

Results


Factory floor applications upgraded and containerized with no impact on operations, while doubling factory output to 42,000 wafers/month.
