These days microservices are often pursued because tech giants like Uber and Twitter use them. Adam Drake argues that your startup probably doesn't need them and that they should only be used when your monolith gets so complex making the app more modular won’t cut it.
CA Technologies today announced new capabilities within its API Management portfolio in an attempt to help developers, enterprise architects and digital leaders create and deploy microservices—and manage the APIs that connect and orchestrate microservices to build application architectures.
Microservices look like a universal solution to all the problems of managing a large monolithic app. However, software legend Martin Fowler recommends holding your horses. You shouldn’t even consider using them unless your team has some core competencies. He explains what they are over at his blog.
Serverless architectures have been gaining wide traction among developers over the last couple of years. This article is a technical tutorial on getting started with Google Cloud Functions, the serverless offering on the Google Cloud Platform (GCP) which entered beta at the recent Cloud Next 2017.
IBM recently announced that it has open sourced its API Microgateway. The API Microgateway is a programmable API gateway that aims to help developers secure and control both microservices and APIs. It helps developers publish existing services as APIs or create new APIs from existing data sources.
IBM has announced that new capabilities have been added to IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk including a new API Gateway and automatic configuration of external endpoints. The new capabilities aim to make it easier and more secure for developers to connect event-driven programming with outside data and systems.
Microservices promise much greater scalability than standard monolithic apps, but there’s always a catch. In the case of microservices it’s that managing security is more complicated. Scott Matteson sat down with Owen Garrett to learn more about microservices and its security best practices.
Nearly every app starts as a monolith. But as the codebase grows, the app can become hard to understand for new developers and one small change in one part of the system can have unexpected effects in other places. This is where having a service-based architecture can help.
Serverless frameworks, despite their name, are not really serverless. Of course, there are servers somewhere handling requests but you don’t have to worry about them. You just post a snippet of code and your hosting service takes care of the rest. But who could benefit from these frameworks?
