Cloud native applications are popular these days. They promise superior reliability and almost arbitrary scalability. They follow three key principles: they are built and composed as microservices. They are packaged and distributed in containers. The containers are executed dynamically in the cloud. But which technology is best to build this kind of application? This talk […]

Tim Berglund takes us through a series of examples in this session recorded at Devoxx Poland 2017. Normally simple tasks like running a program or storing and retrieving data become much more complicated when we start to do them on collections of computers, rather than single machines. Distributed systems has become a key architectural concern, […]

Voxxed chatted with Chris Richardson after his talk at Devoxx UK 2017. The microservice architecture structures an application as a set of loosely coupled, collaborating services. Maintaining data consistency is challenging since each service has its own database to ensure loose coupling. To make matters worse, for a variety of reasons distributed transactions using JTA […]

Memory in a microservices architecture is tricky. Gayathri Thiyagarajan is speaking at Devoxx UK about this. We asked her if you need to think about memory differently for a microservices architecture, and why.   Do you need to think about memory differently for microservices? Microservices have many aspects such as operational complexity. So identifying boundaries to distributed computing […]

By Martijn van Dongen. Serverless is considered the successor to containers. And while it’s heavily promoted as the next great thing, it’s not the best fit for every use case. Understanding the pitfalls and disadvantages of serverless will make it much easier to identify use cases that are a good fit. This post offers some technology […]

There are some huge challenges at Big Silicon Valley companies, like Netflix and the need to scale. But should you really get drawn into that? Sometimes the most complicated issue in development is the business logic, and Bernd Rücker is talking about these challenges at Voxxed Days Vienna this week. We asked him what the […]

Security is often seen as an abstract concept, a separate concern to everyday development. However with a shift in architecture and the increasing adoption of microservices, it is essential to factor it in to your development iterations. At Voxxed Days Bristol, Kate Stanley is giving a practical example of how to secure microservices. She will look […]

By William Hurley from Astadia Adoption and use of cloud-based software engineering platforms will accelerate in 2017. Teams have been working in the cloud for a few years now, but in 2017, the trend will gain far more momentum as senior engineering staff and service providers realise and document the benefits of cloud-based development gains. Adoption will […]

Containerized JBoss BPM Suite! I have a series of articles where I explore with you the reasons why application developers can’t ignore their stacks anymore, which refers to the Cloud based infrastructures they working in their daily jobs. This led to my explorations of the possibility to create that Cloud based infrastructure locally as a […]

By Viktor Farcic, Consultant at CloudBees Everyone talks about containers. It became so huge that we think Docker has existed for a long time. The fact is that it has only started. On the way up… Containers in clusters The significant change will be that 2017 will be focused not that much around running containers […]
