Lightweight Software Labs with Eclipse RT in the Cloud
Imagine your boss tells you to set up the cloud-infrastructure for a public trial system in three days. It should consist of isolated software labs where the trial users are able to execute their uploaded web applications. When a user joins the trial, a sandbox for his personal use should be created on-the-fly. In this sandbox he can access, manage, and monitor his latest application whenever he wants.
You think this is impossible? We thought the same :-).
In this talk we want to share our experience how we got it up and running in five days. With the time constraints and requirements in mind we decided for using the Eclipse RT technology Virgo wrapped in light weight Docker containers. You learn in this talk how these fragments can be glued together with minimal effort in coding and scripting.
