Cloud-Native Microservices and Containers in the Middleware World leveraging Docker, Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry
Abstract: Microservices are the next step after SOA: Services implement a limited set of functions. Services are developed, deployed and scaled independently. Continuous Delivery automates deployments. This way you get shorter time to results and increased flexibility. Containers improve these even more offering a very lightweight and flexible deployment option. In the middleware world, you use concepts and tools such as an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB), Complex Event Processing (CEP), Business Process Management (BPM) or API Gateways. Many people still think about complex, heavyweight central brokers. However, Microservices and containers are relevant not just for custom self-developed applications, but they are also a key requirement to make the middleware world more flexible, agile and automated. This session discusses best practices for creating a cloud-native Microservices architecture in the middleware world. A live demo shows how container solutions such as Docker, cloud platforms such as Cloud Foundry, cluster manager such as Kubernetes or Mesos, and different programming languages are used to implement, deploy and scale cloud-native “Middleware Microservices”.
