Container-native development is primarily about consistency, flexibility, and scalability. Legacy Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tooling often is not, leading to situations where it: Places artificial barriers on development speed, and therefore time to value, Creates single points of failure in the infrastructure, and Stifles innovation through inflexibility. Ultimately, developers are expensive, but they are the […]
Developing Microservices on Kubernetes
Microservices and microservice architecture is the modern approach to building cloud applications as independent services using Kubernetes.
One of the greatest challenges of moving from traditional monolithic application design to a microservices architecture is being able to monitor your business transaction flow—the flow of events via micro service calls throughout your entire system.
What are Microservices?
Microservices are an architecture for breaking up a monolithic application into a collection of smaller pieces. Each of those pieces provides a particular function via a well-defined and carefully managed API. The collection delivers the same overall business value as the original monolithic application, but the independence of the individual pieces means they can be updated much more quickly without impacting the overall collection. (This requires, of course, that any changes to the API are done in a backwards-compatible way.)
