Adopting new development approaches such as containerization is a big change for traditional enterprise environments. Ancestry, the global leader in family history and consumer genomics, has been a big data company long before the term existed with billions of historical records and millions of family trees, much of which ran in a traditional IT environment. With a new flood of genomic data from its AncestryDNA test and the desire to continue to increase the speed of innovation, Ancestry adopted containerization and micro services using Kubernetes orchestration APIs. This session will describe Ancestry's journey to containerization and how a coherent and consistent API set such as Kubernetes can aid companies looking to make a similar transition. Paul MacKay, one of Ancestry’s Software Architects, will discuss what the company has learned during the past few years of development from both a technical and cultural change perspective.
