The benefits of the microservices model come at the expense of increased operational complexity, the need for service discovery, and messaging and API call volumes. Availability and performance issues also can be created if auto scaling, load balancing and other automation tools aren’t used effectively. We understand the essentials of Microservices and Containerization and can help you design to avoid the common pitfalls. We have enjoyed real-world success using Docker in production deployments.

Some of our key expertise and strategies include:

  • Recommendation for containerization based on understanding the feasibility and studying the stateless\stateful-ness of the application.
  • Design containerized apps to be platform agnostic.
  • Aim to promote a single build-up through environments instead of generating a build per environment.
  • Design to build once and deployed many times in many places.
  • Balance the risks with the potential strategic advantages of leveraging containers.
  • Expertise to estimate how much work it will take to refactor the applications so that they can be a set of containers as well as scale as a cluster of containers.
  • Test to the limit for: scalability, Stability, Data, Management and security.

More on Docker and Microservices

Today the microservices architecture is far from a new trend and is generally accepted as a better way to build applications. The age old monolithic architecture of many existing applications hampers innovation and increases time to market; hence the trend of companies adopting microservices architecture is not surprising. A key driver in the movement toward microservices is also the proliferation of connected devices — smartphones, tablets, wearables, smart home appliances, fitness trackers, drones and beyond. Container virtualization technologies like Docker or LXC not only make it easier to implement microservices but they also reduce risk and speed up continuous deployment and delivery. The rise of open source Docker containers in recent years has created a de-facto standard for how applications can extend from one platform to another running as micro-services in Linux server and OpenShift PaaS environments. On the other hand, Kubernetes helps automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.
