The Twelve-Factor Container



Casey West uses the seminal twelve-factor app essay as a guide to discuss the do’s and dont’s of building and running containers. Each factor provides an opportunity to consider avoidable anti-patterns when using containers to deploy and manage repeatable, reliable, and portable services.


Casey West works as a Principal Technologist focusing on Pivotal’s Cloud Foundry Platform. Working in Internet infrastructure, web app security, and design taught him to be a paranoid, UX-oriented, problem solving Internet plumber. Casey’s speaking and writing ranges from open source communities and culture to technical architecture and automation tips and tricks.
