Monoliths and Microservices

When people think about this evolving technology landscape, an immediate thought process surrounds the question of how to think about monolithic applications in today’s business context. This is why microservices are evolving as a pattern with the idea of dividing and conquering the construction and delivery of highly complex, distributed applications.

The prospect of implementing a modernized microservices architecture is, of course, not without its own challenges, which is why it was so awesome to have this chat with Brian. We discussed what those challenges look like, dove into some lessons learned from good CI practices, talked about different ways companies are “breaking up the monolith,” and highlighted some key emerging patterns to evolve existing applications.

2017 looks to be a year where microservices and containers get pushed even further into the limelight as companies continue to invest in software-driven innovation and technology. I look forward to what the New Year brings and hope you all enjoy this discussion on The Cloudcastas much as I did!

The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
Organizations do not need a Big Data strategy; they need a business strategy that incorporates Big Data. Most organizations lack a road map for using Big Data to optimize key business processes, deliver a differentiated customer experience, or uncover new business opportunities. They do not understand what’s possible with respect to integrating Big Data into the business model.
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity.
