Catch this Webinar: From Monoliths to Microservices – and Beyond!

From Monoliths to Microservices – and Beyond!

As enterprises continue their DevOps journeys and strive towards Continuous Delivery (CD), there is strong demand for solutions and tools that will improve software application development and delivery pipelines. In this quest for better software faster, Microservices have emerged as a solution to the limitations presented by monolithic legacy applications.

With Microservices, teams have the opportunity to break free from being tied to monolithic-style single release cycles for any and all improvements or updates. This enables the scaling of teams and applications to meet speed and efficiency demands for software delivery. However, there are a number of challenges that come along with Microservices.

Watch this DevOps.com webinar to hear Mark Hornbeek, principal consultant, DevOps at Trace3, and Anders Wallgren, CTO at Electric Cloud, share the most important considerations – culturally and architecturally – for shifting from monoliths to Microservices.

This video provides useful takeaways – whether you are in the midst of your Microservices journey, you are just getting started, or you are still considering whether Microservices are right for you.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure using the Kublr platform, and how Kubernetes objects, such as persistent volumes, ingress rules, and services, can be used to abstract from the infrastructure.
Everyone wants the rainbow - reduced IT costs, scalability, continuity, flexibility, manageability, and innovation. But in order to get to that collaboration rainbow, you need the cloud! In this presentation, we'll cover three areas: First - the rainbow of benefits from cloud collaboration. There are many different reasons why more and more companies and institutions are moving to the cloud. Benefits include: cost savings (reducing on-prem infrastructure, reducing data center foot print, reducing IT support costs), enabling growth (ensuring a highly available, highly scalable infrastructure), increasing employee access & engagement (by having collaboration tools that are usable and available globally regardless of location there will be an increased connectedness amongst teams and individuals that will help increase both efficiency and productivity.)
SYS-CON Events announced today that Silicon India has been named “Media Sponsor” of SYS-CON's 21st International Cloud Expo, which will take place on Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Published in Silicon Valley, Silicon India magazine is the premiere platform for CIOs to discuss their innovative enterprise solutions and allows IT vendors to learn about new solutions that can help grow their business.
We are seeing a major migration of enterprises applications to the cloud. As cloud and business use of real time applications accelerate, legacy networks are no longer able to architecturally support cloud adoption and deliver the performance and security required by highly distributed enterprises. These outdated solutions have become more costly and complicated to implement, install, manage, and maintain.SD-WAN offers unlimited capabilities for accessing the benefits of the cloud and Internet. SD-WAN helps enterprises to take advantage of the exploding landscape of cloud applications and services, due to its unique capability to support all things cloud related.
