Docker/Containers

Has anyone been building their apps using Docker for their heavy computational processes?  Or in general, has anyone been creating micro-services in containers for their programs for speed and scale?

I am currently playing with docker. The business logic is based on the Monte-Carlo simulation.
And yes, my goal is to create a scalable (micro)service architecture. Since Monte-Carlo can be run in parallel, all I have to do is to put my container in Kubernetes and let it manage the balancing (at least I hope so).

Sounds like we're doing something very similar.  Do you mind me asking if you're using a cloud service?  Azure/AWS?

Azure. But it shall not matter which cloud (or bare metall) solution one uses. At least, in theory :)
