Zenly + Docker 1.12 + 1M teenagers
Zenly is a mobile app that helps you locate your friends in real time. Recently the Zenly app reached the million registered users mark — and half of them signed up in the last three months.
In the words of Steeve Morin, VP Engineering of Zenly, “Behold, the power of teenagers.”
The rapid growth in users, traffic and data points generated posed new challenges for the Zenly team.
As one of the early users of Docker 1.12, the Zenly team shared their experience during the keynote presentation at DockerCon US 2016 in Seattle.
Here is the story as told by Steeve, JB Daildo and Corentin Kerisit:

Our analytics stack was starting to experience failures due to scaling issues, the costs were rising with how we were running the cluster in the cloud and our 6 person team was challenged in supporting it while also building, scaling and supporting the Zenly app.
