Hosted sessions

Easier and DevOps-friendly Dynamics NAV environments using Docker / Windows Containers
LEVEL: 300 - Advanced
LEVEL: 200 - Intermediate
Room 8

Bringing your NAV solutions from the Development laptop to the Production system while keeping everything running flawlessly isn’t always as easy as it might seem. And answering the question why some obscure problem happens only in a customer installation on a given build but not in your In-House environment can be even harder to answer.

In this session you’ll get first a brief introduction to Windows Containers and Docker, and what Microsoft provides to help simplify rapid deployments while maintaining stability. Then we will show you how you can use the same technology to ease multi-CU installations and quickly adjust the Microsoft deliverables according to your needs. And you’ll get an idea how this can be used to get some resource governance for NAV Server instances. Even if you have never or only briefly heard of Docker and Windows Containers, they’ll introduce you to the concepts and technology and let you know how this can help to simplify your daily NAV workload as a developer or operations person.
