As much as stateless micro-services running in containers are a great way of running your infrastructure and having it scale, very many of us have to deal with existing software that wasn't designed with any of that in mind.

One option is to just keep that software running where it is, possibly on some old physical server in a rack somewhere. Another is to move the whole thing to a virtual machine and save some power and space in the process.

But what about system containers? Can't you use those to run all your existing or legacy software with the kind of flexibility and density that containers provide?

This presentation will look into what kind of workload make the most sense to move to containers, what limitations there may be with running old software on very recent systems and will also touch on how such a system container environment can be managed at scale.
