Microservices Security Enables Arvato to Securely Migrate to Containers
Container Visibility and Microservices Security Was Critical for Migration Project
The Container Project
A year ago, Arvato, a subsidiary of Bertelsmann, embarked on an ambitious plan to migrate to a microservices based architecture with Docker containers as a key enabler.

But strict data protection laws in Germany means this has to be done securely. In addition, TÜV compliance regulations require logical separation of applications.
Arvato has successfully deployed the first phase of the migration to production, but not without a few challenges. The project required development of a new big data app as well as migration of an existing application. There were initial difficulties debugging connections between services. Several technologies and platforms were tested before deployment to production.
