Microservices! They are everywhere, or at least, the term is. When should you use a microservice architecture? What factors should be considered when making that decision? Do the benefits outweigh the costs? Why is everyone so excited about them, anyway?  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.

Today at EclipseCon we announced OrionHub, a hosted implementation of the new Orion tools platform.  We want OrionHub to be the place where developers can experiment and discover the features of Orion, without requiring someone to download and install Orion on your own machine.   Right now, the service is a ‘beta’ so we still need to iron out some issues.  More importantly we are deleting files created on OrionHub on a regular basis, so don’t leave anything too important on your account.  We have opened sign-up for OrionHub to the first 5000 developers, so go give it a try now.

You will also noticed we have launched a new Orion home page.   Kudos to Nathan Gervais for creating a pretty sweet looking site.

Finally, for those that are interested some of the notes from the Orion planning meeting are now available on the Orion Wiki.   The day and half meeting was a good success.  We had 25-35 people in attendance from a wide range of companies.   There certainly seems to be a lot of interest in the Orion concept.
