DockerCon Session: Jireh Semiconductor’s Journey to Modernizing 15+ Year Old Apps

Doubling Factory Output by Updating Legacy Applications with Docker Enterprise


Jireh needed to modernize its aging architecture and retire 25+ year old HP UX servers while simultaneously increasing wafer production capacity without downtime.


Jireh containerized and upgraded legacy Java-based applications with Docker Enterprise and migrated the apps to new servers.


Factory floor applications upgraded and containerized with no impact on operations, while doubling factory output to 42,000 wafers/month.
