H-E-B, like many enterprises, is moving away from legacy mainframes in favor of microservices and public cloud infrastructure. With hundreds of applications powering their 100+ year-old grocery business (with more than 400 stores in Texas and Mexico), H-E-B needs to be confident that the platform they are building will provide them the agility and security to continue to innovate for their customers.
In this session, the H-E-B engineering team provides details on how they’ve started breaking down their Curbside and Home Delivery monoliths into microservices, why they chose to make Kubernetes a first-class citizen, and why they’re leveraging Anthos as a hybrid cloud platform.
The grocer began to map out a two- to four-year modernization plan in 2017. Initially, the enterprise signed on with Google Cloud and used GKE to move toward a container-first approach to app delivery. Later, it decided to adopt Anthos. Today, Anthos gives H-E-B tighter control over compliance and better proximity to its retail data.
Join the discussion with Joe Rodriguez, Platform Engineering Manager for H-E-B, and. Justin Turner, Sr. Software Engineering Manager for Curbside and Delivery Fulfillment at H-E-B, to learn about the lessons that led to the company’s successful transformation. Find out how Anthos, when deployed on-premises, will expedite their journey to microservices. Learn about the challenges that come with adopting a hybrid modernization strategy and how Anthos plays a critical role in their success in this session.
