Move Over Service-Oriented Architectures: Microservices are in Town

Service oriented architectures (SOAs) have been around since the 1990s, providing an alternative to monolithic applications – essentially collections of coarse grained components that communicated with each other. But, while SOAs used to serve as a revolutionary approach to solving the architectural problems challenging businesses, it’s simply no longer the case in today’s business landscape.

Containers: The First-Class Citizens of CMP 2.0

As many readers in this space are aware, Embotics made a pretty big announcement this summer. We’re ready to declare the death of the old way of managing cloud environments - CMP 1.0 - and move on to building the future cloud management platform – one that is designed for microservices, DevOps and hybrid IT. We’re calling it CMP 2.0, and it’s got everyone at Embotics excited about the future of our company and our industry.

Microservices: The Latest Industry Buzz

With the growth in cloud and mobile technologies, there’s a new player in town when it comes to application development: microservices. You’ve probably seen microservices, containers and serverless computing mentioned across the news these past few months – and the reason is not surprising. Microservices architecture has the potential to seriously disrupt the way enterprise IT develops applications in the future.

Reading the Tea Leaves: Cloud Computing Predictions for 2017

The world of enterprise applications is dramatically changing. Enterprises are continuing to deploy apps faster and more frequently than ever before, with no signs of slowing. And with the cloud wars between AWS, Azure and Google only growing more intense and moving up stack to the PaaS layers – which is a good thing for enterprises – 2017 will be a milestone year for the cloud computing industry.

Diving Into Microservices

With the explosive growth of the cloud, big data analytics and SaaS-based business applications and services, we’ve seen the underlying application architecture transform. Applications today are no longer limited by the infrastructure they run on. Instead, they can control their fundamental infrastructure technologies, turning them into services to be harnessed on demand and programmatically during application execution. Key to exploiting “Infrastructure as Code”, modern applications are being constructed out of a collection of autonomous, independent building blocks dedicated to a single function each, called Microservices. Uber, Amazon, Netflix, Ebay and Twitter have all publicly embraced this type of approach to building and delivering their services. So why are so many organizations turning to microservices in the cloud era?
