Microservices architecture (MSA) is here to stay. It is the natural evolution of SOA or as some call it, “it’s SOA done right”. Containers and container-based service deployments compliment and accelerate the adoption of MSA. Today you do not plan for maintenance windows in a production platform. You have blue/green type platform updates with strategies like traffic shadowing. All of that agility has become a reality with microservices, clean architectures, and container-based deployment and orchestration.
This talk is a discussion of what’s next in this highly agile, massively distributed environment. It will focus on fine tuned DevOps processes, governance, and observability in a massively distributed container native microservices platform.
