This talk is useful for any company that wants to take advantage of the 'containerized' PaaS-style deployment, made popular by Heroku, in their own private infrastructure.

Build Your Own Heroku from globaldev on Vimeo.

The globaldev team is gradually becoming more polyglot, and is constantly churning out more supporting applications to help run our platform. Deploying all these apps the "old fashioned way" provides a big headache for our Operations team. Luckily, the industry is moving more and more towards containerised PaaS-style deployment such as that used by Heroku.

In this talk I discuss how companies that aren't on the absolute bleeding edge of the Linux kernel can still leverage these patterns on their private infrastructure, even when fantastic projects like Docker won't run on their hardware.
