  The CERN Control and Monitoring Platform (C2MON) is an open-source platform for industrial controls data acquisition, monitoring, control and data publishing. C2MON's high-availability, redundant capabilities make it particularly suited for a large, geographically scattered context such as CERN. The C2MON platform relies on the Java technology stack at all levels of its architecture. Since end of 2016, CERN offers a platform as a service (PaaS) solution based on RedHat Openshift. Initially envisioned at CERN for web application hosting, Openshift can be leveraged to host any software stack due to its adoption of the Docker container technology. In order to make C2MON more scalable and compatible with Cloud Computing, it was necessary to containerize C2MON components for the Docker container platform. Containerization is a logical process that forces one to rethink a distributed architecture in terms of decoupled micro-services suitable for a cloud environment. This paper explains the challenges met and the principles behind containerizing a server-centric Java application, demonstrating how simple it has now become to deploy C2MON in any cloud-centric environment.
