While there is a lot of excitement around cloud computing and its benefits, security and compliance are the top reasons used for not migrating to the cloud.

In the last decade, there has been a tremendous amount of innovation coming out of companies running their businesses on the public cloud. Netflix, SalesForce, Uber, AirBnB are just a few examples. These businesses have taken the advantage of the public cloud. On the other hand, it is very hard to find innovation and wealth generation coming out of companies leveraging their legacy data centers (aka Private Cloud).

Team spirits were high this September at Shippable's Bangalore office in anticipation of DevOpsDays India 2015, organized by Emerging Technologies Trust and Bangalore office's first event as conference sponsors! In addition to activities around getting the new office in shape and interviews set-up everyday for the engineering team's expansion, we had quite a lot on our plates. From getting the banners, standees, stickers, business cards printed to sourcing t-shirts but we pulled it off just in time! What made it even more fun was Avi's presence in Bangalore during the first half of September. In fact, he had a scheduled talk at the conference but I'll get back to that later in the blog (saving the best for last!).

Last month we introduced the ability to deploy Docker containers to Amazon AWS Elastic Beanstalk (EBS) as the last step in a Shippable CI/CD pipeline.  In this article, I will walk through the steps required to set this up in Shippable and execute a deployment to EBS.

AWS Elastic Beanstalk is an easy-to-use service for deploying and scaling web applications and services developed with Java, .NET, PHP, Node.js, Python, Ruby, Go, and Docker on familiar servers such as Apache, Nginx, Passenger, and IIS.

Here at Shippable, we're incredibly excited about the launch of Docker Hub 2.0!  It's no secret that Shippable is a big believer in Docker. Behind the scenes, we've been running Shippable on Docker containers for more than two years now, currently running more than one million Docker containers per week in production.

What may be news, though, is how easily Shippable enables you to incorporate Docker Hub into your software delivery pipeline. And with Docker Hub 2.0, our customers see faster push and pull performance, reducing the cycle time on CI/CD build times and Formations deployment times.

 For an in-depth description and tutorial, check out the white paper "Building a Cloud-based CI/CD Pipeline with Docker, Shippable & GitHub":

Pranay Pareek from our Bangalore office is the subject of this month's Employee Spotlight series. Pranay celebrates his one-year anniversary at Shippable this month and is a self-confessed geek. He is fascinated with Easter-egg references and the idea of interstellar travel, as evident in the phrase, 'flying whales and hypercubes' found on one of his online profiles. Besides his parents, the key influencers in Pranay's life are Chuck Schuldiner (Late Frontman - Death), Diane Greene (Founder - VMware), and Edward Snowden. Read on below to find out more about Pranay. You can also reach out to him via his webpage.
