From Monolith to Microservices

To tackle this monolith, we initially began exploring how the codebase was built. It had a high level of complexity with too many features baked into the all-in-one code, as well as thousands of unit tests. Without consistent APIs, many nonstandard integrations, or one-offs, had been deployed. Tight coupling of integrations existed at every level, […]

Using Machine Learning to Ensure the Capacity Safety of Individual Microservices

Reliability engineering teams at Uber build the tools, libraries, and infrastructure that enable engineers to operate our thousands of microservices reliably at scale. At its essence, reliability engineering boils down to actively preventing outages that affect the mean time between failures (MTBF). As Uber’s global mobility platform grows, our global scale and complex network of […]

Intro to Apache Kafka and Kafka Streams for Event-Driven Microservices on DevNation Live

Scalability is often a key issue for many growing organizations. That’s why many organizations use Apache Kafka, a popular messaging and streaming platform. It is horizontally scalable, cloud-native, and versatile. It can serve as a traditional publish-and-subscribe messaging system, as a streaming platform, or as a distributed state store. Companies around the world use Apache […]

Presentation: From Winning the Microservice War to Keeping the Peace

Andrew McVeigh explains how transitioning to a microservice architecture went for a top-tier video service & also a major games studio. Operating and evolving such significant systems reveals a number of challenges: monitoring and root cause analysis, cascading failures and scaling for major events are just some. McVeigh discusses how to avoid common pitfalls when […]

The taming of microservices

The cost of managing microservices and the dependencies between them increase exponentially as their numbers rise. But things don’t have to be complicated. By making it easier than ever to add powerful new microservices, Kubernetes has become a driving force behind companies breaking up monolith apps and transforming them into microservice architectures. But as their […]

Solving the challenges of debugging microservices on a container platform

Microservices have become mainstream in the enterprise. This proliferation of microservices applications generates new problems, which requires a new approach to managing problems. A microservice is a small, independently deployable, and independently scalable software service that is designed to encapsulate a specific semantic function in the larger applicationl. This article explores several approaches to deploying […]

MicroProfile, the microservice programming model made for Istio

MicroProfile is a fast-growing open community. It is a warm and friendly platform for developers to come together to evolve programming model for cloud-native microservices. Since it was established in June 2016, it has released 6 overall releases and 16 individual specification releases in less than 2 years.Thispage shows which application servers support MicroProfile at […]
