The following shows a case study about successfully moving from a very complex monolith system to a cloud-native architecture. The architecture leverages containers and Microservices to solve issues such as high efforts for extending the system, and a very slow deployment process. The old system included a few huge Java applications and a complex integration middleware deployment.
The new architecture allows flexible development, deployment, and operations of business and integration services. Besides, it is vendor-agnostic so that you can leverage on-premise hardware, different public cloud infrastructures, and cloud-native PaaS platforms.
The session will describe the challenges of the existing monolith system, the step-by-step procedure to move to the new cloud-native microservices architecture, and why containers such as Docker play a key role in this scenario.
A live demo shows how container solutions such as Docker, PaaS cloud platforms such as CloudFoundry, cluster managers such as Kubernetes or Mesos, and different programming languages are used to implement, deploy and scale cloud-native Microservices in a vendor-agnostic way.
Key takeaways for the audience:
Best practices for moving to a cloud-native architecture
How to leverage microservices and containers for flexible development, deployment, and operations
How to solve challenges in real world projects
Understand key technologies, which are recommended
How to stay vendor-agnostic
See a live demo of how cloud-native applications respectively services differ from monolith applications regarding development and runtime
