282014 - Transforming a 15+ Year Old Semiconductor Manufacturing Environment

Session Speakers
Session Description

Jireh Semiconductor bought the Hillsboro fab and its contents including the manufacturing tools, servers, and software running the fab. The previous company had been winding down for years so server and software upgrades had not been on the radar for some time. In 2011 Jireh became the proud owner of the building, the tools, and its legacy software running on servers that weren’t even made any more. That's when I started my adventure with Jireh in September 2016 with a charter to modernize the applications running the manufacturing facility process and move them into VMs with no impact to manufacturing. That led me down a path of exploration and questions. “What’s the goal?” The goal wasn't to move to VMs. It was to become independent of the aging PA-RISC architecture, bring forward the ~230 java 1.4.2 applications (10-15 years old), scale to allow increased the load on the software and hardware in order to ramp the factory output to numbers never seen previously. And do it without manufacturing downtime. The solution included a transition from waterfall and silo development to agile scrum. Rather than simply migrating to VMs, it became obvious the lynch pin for a successful software transition with the required uptime, flexibility, and scalability was Docker Enterprise. Join me for this session where I'll talk about my journey modernizing 15+ year old applications and infrastructure at Jireh.
