Technology organizations are complex environments that bind deeply technical tools and infrastructure with strong cultural threads. Software like Mesos and Docker offer compelling stories around scalability, fault tolerance, and deterministic environments. Nonetheless, many challenges emerge as one attempts to weave these components into an existing engineering culture.

A successful transition to a service-oriented architecture has left Groupon with numerous services deployed to a variety of hardware, physical and virtual, via a diverse set of tools. Along the way the organization has picked up an array of operational readiness requirements and deploy controls. All of these help to maintain stability and performance but come at a cost: ease of deployment.

Conveyor aims to maintain and improve Groupon’s high bar for production software quality, while streamlining the process of getting code into production. Powerful tools like Apache Mesos, Marathon, and Docker form the foundation of this approach. This talk covers how Conveyor uses these tools together and the various technical and cultural hurdles encountered in the process of rolling out this infrastructure within the enterprise.
