From Swarm to Kubernetes and Back Again

Companies across every industry are rapidly realizing the value of microservices, and the solution conducted in support of that revelation often leads to containers. Along that path comes a decision that most IT engineers in this space are familiar with: What orchestrator do we use?

In this webinar, Don Bauer, Lead DevOps Engineer, and Mike Noe, Senior DevOps Engineer at Citizens Bank, will walk you through some of the key crossroads that are often encountered when making this decision. Additionally, they'll cover:

  • How many operational and development problems can be solved with any orchestrator
  • Tips and tricks for solving common problems
  • Why Citizens Bank chose the path they did

Don Bauer

Don Bauer started his career twelve years ago in a metrics analyst and systems engineering role with Charter Communications. Since then, he has held roles in development, infrastructure, architecture and operations for both enterprise corporations and startups. He immediately recognized a common thread in each role that allowed him to focus on enabling teams and companies to succeed through standardization, simplification, and automation. Don believes companies and teams succeed through transparency and experimentation without the fear of failure. In his current role, Don operates with one simple principle: to automate himself out of a job. Currently, Don is the Lead DevOps Engineer for Citizens Bank under the umbrella of the company’s innovation initiative. He primarily focuses on automating the integration and delivery of software and services, and he supports innovation using technologies like Docker and Kubernetes. Don is also a Docker community leader and co-organizes Nashville’s Docker and Golang meetups.
