Top Challenges to Application Performance: Complexity & Team Silos

Posted by Meghan Shipp on Jan 17, 2020 7:00:00 AM

Assuring application performance to enable a seamless customer experience is at the forefront of organizations’ application transformation initiatives. To deliver on customer expectations, organizations are using containers and other cloud native technologies to reap benefits like agility and faster time-to-market – but with that comes complexity and high rates of change on a scale that teams are struggling to manage.

Microservices in the Real World: How We Used Red Hat’s Operator Framework to Automate Our Application Lifecycle

Posted by Endre Sara on Dec 20, 2019 8:34:04 AM

In this series Microservices in the Real World, I’ve been sharing our journey to cloud native. First there was the challenge of automating memory management in our containerized Java application, then we had to secure our containers (thank you, Red Hat), and then we had to figure out how to run an application, which we started building before Kubernetes was a thing, on Kubernetes. Which puts us at “cloud native-ish.” The next question for us was: How do we fully automate our application lifecycle?

A Brief History of Multicluster Kubernetes

Posted by Irfan Ur Rehman on Nov 11, 2019 11:57:24 AM

This post was originally published here.

The community has been on a Kubernetes multi-cluster journey since 2015 and we’ve learned a lot along the way. As we approach KubeCon North America in San Diego, I’d like to reflect on how we got to where we are today, its origins and what the SIG is aiming for.

Microservices in the Real World: Now We Run Our Pre-Kubernetes Application on Kubernetes. So Can You.

Posted by Endre Sara on Oct 8, 2019 10:45:00 AM

Today, it’s become almost sacrilegious to think about running microservices on anything but Kubernetes. But in 2016, when we first began our journey to microservices, Kubernetes didn’t have the level of maturity that it has now. Back then, we just wanted the benefits of breaking up our monolithic application into loosely coupled services. Like most organizations, the monolith served us as well as it could. But when Docker made containers easy, a whole new world opened up. At the time, docker-compose was the easiest way to start a group of containerized application services, but the very next consideration was orchestrating those containers. We soon found that docker-compose does not allow the easy distribution and orchestration of components across cluster nodes. There were also challenges with multi-node networking and shared storage across the nodes. And then Kubernetes came along.

How to Effectively Control Requests, the Silent Killer of Elasticity & Efficiency

Now that Kubernetes has graduated to enterprise-ready, organizations are looking to expand their platforms to support more applications and more lines of business. In order to do this at scale, they need to support these applications and lines of business in multitenant environments—even modern microservice applications have to share resources!

Microservices in the Real World: How We Used Red Hat Universal Base Image 8 to Secure Our Containers

Posted by Endre Sara on Sep 27, 2019 10:12:10 AM

Microservices are all well and good, but these are just our modern day applications. And all applications, especially enterprise applications need to be secure. In my previous post I talked about how we were able to dynamically manage Java memory for each of the processes running in our re-architected microservices application. This was just one example of the realities we face when building an enterprise microservices application. We re-architected our application to scale with and automate some of the world’s largest hybrid cloud estates. With that kind of responsibility, every service of this application must be secured.
