Tyco International is the eyes, ears, and guardian angel of millions of companies and homeowners around the world. It provides fire and security protection for sprawling corporate campuses, retail stores, homes, and even ships at sea. To keep its eyes and ears open, Tyco has to ensure that its monitoring systems are up and running around the clock. And that quickly takes us into the nerdy world of software application construction. See how Tyco is taking advantage of Windows Server 2016, and in particular Windows Server Containers, to first containerwe legacy applications and then re-architect them using microservices. This one-two software punch will give the security giant the ability to update large, older applications in a modular fashion and keep monitoring applications running continuously. It also lets Tyco scale applications to handle larger monitoring loads and run those applications in the cloud to reduce costs. So everyone sleeps better at night.
