ADP + Docker Datacenter Delivers Security and Scale for Both Legacy and Microservices Applications
At DockerCon 2016, the second day’s general session featured products and stories related to Docker running in the enterprise. From product demonstrations of integrated security features, to deployment templates to a session featuring Keith Fulton, CTO of ADP, speaking about their evolution to a tech company and how Docker Datacenter enables them to ship faster, securely at scale across apps big and small.
ADP is the largest global provider of cloud based human capital management (HCM) solutions. ADP has over 630,000 clients that span more than 35 million users in over 100 countries. More than just payroll services, ADP delivers solutions across the entire spectrum of HCM for their customers in each one of these areas with right sized versions for SMBs, mid market and large enterprises.
This breadth and depth of solutions developed over the last 60 years does lead to some complexity in product development. ADP views this as a transition from a services company to a technology company and Docker is the key to future acceleration. Speeding up product development, not just in writing more code faster, but also helping ADP ship the resulting end product faster. Docker enables them to have a common framework between dev and ops and a clean hand off point.
To do this, ADP chose Docker Datacenter as the platform to deploy and manage containerized applications securely at scale. Docker Datacenter is an integrated Containers as a Service (CaaS) solution that brings together the Docker Engine, Trusted Registry for image management and Universal Control Plane to manage the cluster and application containers. ADP found Docker Datacenter able to address their three unique challenges around security, disparate systems at scale and how to get to microservices.
