This talk was given during DockerCon EU 2018.
It ain't just a whim - to be able to continue innovating, we’ve moved our good old static production to containers. We needed to be elastic, fast, reliable and production ready at any time - that's why we chose Docker. But like in most enterprises, lots of our apps run on the JVM and most JVMs’ ergonomics assume they “own” the server they are running on. So how do you containerize JVM apps? Should you really increase JVM heap if you have spare memory? What about OS caches? What are the differences between JDK 8, 9 and 10 when it comes to container awareness? Outages because of out of memory errors? Slowness because of long garbage collection and poor environment visibility? Long story short, in this session, we’ll look at the gotchas of running JVM apps in containers and teach you how to avoid costly mistakes.
Top 3 things attendees will learn:
1. Key differences between various JVM versions relevant for containerized Java apps.
2. Best practices for running JVM in containers.
3. Avoiding common pitfalls when running containerized JVM applications.
