5 Testing Strategies For Deploying Microservices


With rigorous development and pre-production testing, your microservices will perform as they should. However, microservices need to be continuously tested against actual end-user activity to adapt the application to changing preferences and requests.

6 Advantages of Microservices


Microservices have recently gained in popularity, but you may be unsure whether this architecture is right for your environment. What’s great is microservices are not necessarily a new beast, as the concepts behind them have been a solid part of software development for decades.

Using Event-Driven Architecture With Microservices


Microservices architecture is on the rise, already forming a key part of several current transformation projects, breaking down traditionally monolithic applications into self-contained, independently deployed services that are identified using domain-driven design.

4 Things I Like About Microservices

Henrik Warne

Microservices have gone through a complete hype cycle. Here are four features specific to microservices that I have come to appreciate. A typical microservice has its own database, and the microservice is only accessible via an API. However, microservices are not all bad.

Microservices: The Dark Side

Speaker: Prem Chandrasekaran

A few years ago, Barclays embarked on a journey to migrate its legacy services to a modern tech stack with the objective of achieving a high level of scale, resilience, and reliability. During the incremental, iterative move towards an ecosystem of focused, distributed services, it’s fair to say that the company discovered the challenges of distributing objects. Join us for an episode you can’t miss if you’re finding it a lot harder to architect in practice than in theory, and learn how you can shed light on the dark side of microservices.

Microservice Architecture Without Microservice Overhead

Five Microservices Worst Practices


Microservices are moving to the mainstream. The IDC FutureScape: Worldwide IT Industry 2019 Predictions states that by 2022, 90% of all new apps will feature microservices architecture that “improve the ability to design, debug, update and leverage third-party code.” With so many organizations adopting or about to adopt microservices, they must be doing something right. […]. The post Five Microservices Worst Practices appeared first on DevOps.com.

A Microservices Strategy Underpins Every Successful Cloud Native Migration

How to Scale Microservices CI/CD Pipelines


As opposed to a traditional monolith, microservices architecture can theoretically bring many benefits. Microservices decouple software elements, enable reusable components and allow independent development cycles. However, in practice, microservices are prone to many issues.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

Kubernetes and Microservices

Linux Academy

Microservices are a great way to architect your applications. Today, however, more and more people are designing their applications using a series of many relatively independent and decoupled services, known as microservices. Why Microservices? A microservice architecture comes with a host of benefits. Another benefit of microservices is that they allow individual application components to be separately scaled.
