CERN IT department is providing production services to run containers. Given that, the IT-DB team, responsible to run the Java based platforms, has started a new project to move the WebLogic deployments from virtual or bare metal servers to containers: Docker on Kubernetes allow to improve the overall productivity of the team by reducing both operations time and time-to-delivery. Additionally, this framework allows us deploy our services in a fully-reproducible fashion. The scope of the project

This article illustrates how at CERN we have faced all the technical and design aspects to run it in a production environment. That means the implementation of the solutions needed including monitoring, logging, high availability, security and traceability.
