PilotFish Optimized for Docker Containerization and Lightning Fast Deployment
The use of container technology like Docker has become increasingly popular in recent years due to its ability to simplify application deployment and management. By packaging an application along with its dependencies and related configuration into a container, it can be easily moved between different environments and run consistently across different platforms.
PilotFish Integration Engine solution now comes optimized for the Docker containerization technology which enables rapid deployment and cross-environment compatibility. With the eiPlatform Interface Engine Solution, PilotFish can now easily package and ship applications in lightweight, portable, self-sufficient Docker containers. This enables faster interface development, testing, deployment and maintenance while reducing conflicts and easing the burden on development teams. The latest version of PilotFish software includes new features that optimize its performance in container environments, including the ability to set configuration settings via system environment variables.
The PilotFish eiPlatform Interface Engine Solution is well-suited for container environments, as it promotes configuration over code. This means that users can define and configure interfaces using a graphical assembly line process, which can then be easily packaged into Docker images for rapid development, testing, deployment and maintenance.
PilotFish + Docker Delivers Huge Productivity Benefits
The use of Docker with PilotFish’s Integration Engine solution delivers significant advantages – including more portable and efficient distribution of applications and workloads, faster iteration and testing rounds as well as easier deployment and maintenance. This technology combination helps accelerate interoperability across the healthcare ecosystem for solution providers.
To optimize the performance of the PilotFish software in container environments, several new facilities have been added to the platform – including the ability to set core configuration settings via system environment variables. This allows configuration settings to be defined at container build or runtime, making it easier to manage and maintain interfaces.
One of the biggest advantages of using PilotFish with Docker is that applications and workloads become more portable and can be more efficiently distributed in a standardized and repeatable way. This can help to accelerate interoperability across the healthcare ecosystem, making it easier for solution providers to deploy and maintain their interfaces.
With PilotFish and Docker, interface iteration and testing rounds are faster and easier, speeding up implementation and reducing the burden on development teams for deployment and maintenance. The result is a more agile and scalable integration solution that can keep pace with the evolving needs of the healthcare industry.
PilotFish Docker Containerization Licensing and Restrictions
- Each eiPlatform Docker container instance running in a production environment counts as one production eiPlatform instance for the purpose of licensing.
- Note that the eiPlatform and other PilotFish software is proprietary and licensed software, no PilotFish intellectual property (“IP”), including but not limited to eiPlatform WAR file(s), installer(s) or Docker images containing PilotFish IP can be published and/or pushed to Docker registries and/or repositories that allow access to entities and/or parties outside of the licensed entity.
