Microservices, Kubernetes, and Application Modernization Done Right
Many enterprises have reached the limits of what their legacy systems can do. Whether it’s serving business SLAs like agility, reliability, and performance–or hitting technical limitations around scaling, operations, and maintenance–monolithic system architectures are ripe for cloud modernization at the very time when digital transformation initiatives are reshaping many organizations.
That said, a cloud-native approach to modernization requires a new way of thinking in order to realize the desired benefits. Simply lifting and shifting legacy applications onto containerized infrastructure with Docker and Kubernetes will not achieve the benefits of modernization.
In this talk by David Ogren, Enterprise Architect at Lightbend, we draw from experiences helping our clients successfully create, migrate to, and manage cloud-native system architectures. We look at some of the common pitfalls and anti-patterns of modernization efforts, and some of the best practices for taking an incremental approach to transforming legacy systems. Specifically, we’ll cover:
- How to frame project goals - How to leverage business SLAs to encourage organizational support for your modernization initiative
- Why Reactive Microservices - Identifying the critical success factors for microservice-based applications, and how the principles of Reactive Systems can guide your design choices
- Why containers and orchestration - How to adapt your development lifecycle for success with container orchestration using tools like Kubernetes and OpenShift
- How to migrate successfully - How to choose a migration strategy that balances the competing goals of your modernization project
