Webinar: How Microservices are Redefining Modern Application Architecture
Over the last year or so, two things have become clear: containers (or really, Docker) are becoming a building block of modern software architecture, and the ecosystem around containers is maturing quickly. Examples of this trend are: Docker-the-company’s offerings, Google open-sourced Kubernetes, both of which offer ways of managing containers. There is also an explosion of IaaS vendors, each offer their own container services, and dozens of startups are built around the ecosystem.
The emergence of containers has led to the resurgence of microservices. The idea behind microservices is not new: it has been called Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) in the past among other monikers. What’s different this time is that containers make SOA/Microservices more accessible, if not advisable, for a much larger audience.
Or so have we been told.
But what are microservices, really? Are they a bunch of single-purpose apps strung together with APIs? Does it mean running apps with Docker? We had these questions ourselves, and that’s why we decided to invite 451 Research’s Donnie Berkholz to share his insights with us.
On Jan 27, 2016 at 10am PST, 451 Research and Treasure Data will co-host a joint webinar on microservices and its implication for analytics. Donnie will give an overview of the current state of microservices, and I will give our perspective as an analytics service with examples and learnings from our customers that run Treasure Data as one of their microservices.
We welcome you to join us. Even if you cannot attend the event live, the link to the recording will be sent to all registrants!
