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. A Microservice Application in Kubernetes.

Scaling Microservices with Kubernetes

Linux Academy

With microservice architecture, the application is broken down into separate pieces —microservices— that update and deploy independently. This microservice approach provides freedom and flexibility for the programming language used as well as the tools and frameworks that are implemented to administer the application. In the remainder of this post, we will walk through the process of scaling microservices in Kubernetes using both manual and automatic scaling.

How containers, microservices help maintain legacy apps

TechBeacon

Enterprise IT, IT Ops, Containers, Microservices, Containerized ArchitectureWe’ve all heard the term "legacy." It strikes fear in the hearts of millennial developers who have no experience with systems over 15 years old—er, make that five years old. However, most enterprises can't eliminate the old systems entirely, at least not right away. And so, these legacy monsters that dwell in the data centers are a part of our past, present, and future.

Missing the point about microservices – it's about testing and deploying independently

Erik Bernhardsson

Ok, so I have to first preface this whole blog post by a few things: I really struggle with the term microservices. So basically since 2006 I’ve been continuously working in what people now call a “microservice architecture”. 98% of microservice benefit is being able to test and deploy independently. If you end up with a microservice that can’t be tested in isolation, you’re doing things wrong. Some questionable reasons to consider microservices.

Microservices Will Mess Your Team Up

The Plain Programmer

Microservices are popular with many teams. Microservices are often placed in contrast to Monolithic applications. Microservices is an extension of modular, or component-based, software design. Microservice systems that lack such defined boundaries are an order of magnitude worse.
