Microservices Software Architecture Approach By @Ruxit | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Going down microservice lane requires not just new applying a new style of software architecture


This is aimed to be your one-stop-shop for everything microservices: Interesting posts and interesting people.

Microservices is a software architecture approach that propagates small (in terms of responsibility) and independent components instead of monolithic all-in-one components.

Introductory posts

Martin Fowler is a software engineer, author and speaker. The website contains much more interesting content besides about just microservices. Knowing Martin Fowler is really the absolute basic in software development and architecture.

Microservices or the grumpy neckbeard
A short introduction to the topic with focus on implementation and interfaces.

SOA vs Microservices

Service oriented architecture. It shares the idea of separate services, and has been around for over a decade now. As opposed to microservices, it has the image of an enterprisey, heavy-weight methodology.

Microservices is SOA for those who know

We will provide digests to those topics in the future, and they will probably part of some of our future posts. For the time being, you might want to take a look into them yourself.

Domain Driven Design

This is about software architecture in general. In 2004, a book by the same title was published. Many ideas of this book can be seen as prerequisites for being able to apply microservices successfully. Most notably that of bounded contexts.


Going down microservice lane requires not just new applying a new style of software architecture, it also requires a change of mind. The DevOps approach tries to be that.


REST-style APIs are just one way to interface your microservices to the rest of the world.

Continuous Integration

Continuous integration aims to provide a toolchain that maintains a certain level of code quality by automatically running tests, collecting code metrics, etc.

Continuous deployment and Containers (Docker, LXC, …)

The goal of continuous deployment is to make publishing your changes as automated as possible and thus less error prone.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Well-poised organizations, marketing smart devices with AI and BlockChain capabilities prepare to refine compliance and regulatory capabilities in 2018. Volumes of health, financial, technical and privacy data, along with tightening compliance requirements by...
Predicting the future has never been more challenging - not because of the lack of data but because of the flood of ungoverned and risk laden information. Microsoft states that 2.5 exabytes of data are created every day. Expectations and reliance on data are being pushed to the limits, as demands around hybrid options continue to grow.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets.
