Exotel's Journey into the Docker World

Submitted Feb 24, 2020

Abstract : We would want to share the journey of migrating our services to Docker plus Kubernetes ecosystem

Target Audience : SREs, DevOps , Technical folks who want to containerize their services


Description of the Session : Exotel is a “Cloud-Telephony startup” that is 8 years old now . We have all our microservices in AWS on EC2. Over the last year we are on a journey of platform transformation which involves moving all our microservices to Dockers managed by Kubernetes(EKS). With this an entirely new CI-CD pipeline that implements Exotel’s Development process has been built using some of the open source tools like new version of Jenkins for CI plus argoCD for CD . We have also introduced centralised config management , better log management through open source tools . All of this has helped us to achieve the primary objectives of “Dev=QA=Prod” plus “Increased Dev Productivity”. We would want to share this entire journey as a talk .

Sequence of Ideas :

  1. Primary Objectives
  2. New Changes
  3. GitOps-Our Philosophy
  4. Reporsitory Strcuture changes
  5. Exotel COnfigs
  6. Exotel Deployments
  7. SOPS
  8. Steps to COntainerize
  9. CI Pipeline
