Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) Podcast: Episode 34

Microservices are all the rage right now - and the industry is still learning, experimenting, and developing patterns, for successfully designing, deploying and managing Microservices in the real world.

Are you considering jumping on the Microservices-wagon? Do Microservices make sense for your particular use case? What are some of the "gotchas" you should be aware of?

This morning on #c9d9 we had experts from popular chat app Kik, SMB SaaS platformYodle and hosted CI solution  Semaphore share their journey and learnings from decomposing their monolithic application into Microservices.

With Microservices, what was once one application, with self-contained processes, is now a complex set of orchestrated services that connect via the network.

  • What are the benefits of Microservices and why do organizations consider microservices-based architectures?
  • What are some of the challenges with Microservices - both from a design perspective and from an operational perspective?
  • How do they impact your pipeline(s)?
  • What are some best practices for enabling CD for your microservices-driven application?

Also, we discuss what Microservices have to do with 1970's network packet routing, DLL versions, distributed programming, Pipeline-as-code, dependency management, and more. Watch the replay of the episode to learn best practices for decomposing your monolithic application into Microservices, and some tools and libraries to get you started on your journey.

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
