The ADP infrastructure has different environments with differ- ent security levels, enabled by a progressive trust workflow with multiple Docker Trusted Registries (DTR). The first DTR is the "whatever goes" registry that allows for complete developer cre- ativity. The second DTR is the "we think we want to run this" registry that is separate and allows for the team to vet and vali- date new applications. The last DTR manages containers that will be deployed to production. ADP was able to deploy Docker in a flexible way to allow for both developer freedom and high security in the right context. Higher Education: Cornell University Cornell University is one of the world's preeminent research institutions. Its online library, ArXiv.org, serves 30,000 people and receives almost 1.5 million hits a day from all around the world, with 14 million papers downloaded per month. But ArXiv.org, a monolithic legacy application, needed some attention. Enhancements were taking too long to develop and move to production. Cornell took a look at what a microservices- based solution could do and was transfixed by how transforming the ArXiv application to microservices would accelerate time to new value. Cornell made it a priority to modernize this educational and research tool and undertook a project to migrate ArXiv to Docker Datacenter, with incredible results: » Portability of applications across the application life cycle: Cornell benefits from the streamlined workflow and the ability to track changes. » A central location for hosting Docker images and enables multiple organizations secure access to the images: This increases productivity for developers. » High availability set up with secure registry replicas to ensure continuous availability: The secure image storage allows the university to comply with industry standards and reduces risk.
