A lot of companies and organizations have adopted Prometheus and the project quickly gained an active developer and user community. It is currently a standalone open source project maintained independently of any company. In 2016, Prometheus joined the Cloud Native Computing Foundation as the second hosted project after Kubernetes. We talked to Björn Rabenstein, engineer at SoundCloud and Prometheus core developer, about how Prometheus can help companies adopt DevOps.
Netflix has open sourced its “orchestration engine” Conductor, which helped orchestrate over 2.6 million process flows ranging from simple linear workflows to very complex dynamic workflows which run over multiple days. Let’s see what is under its hood.
In this post, Alex Zhitnitsky takes a down-to-earth view at the frameworks we have at our disposal, focusing on the Java ecosystem, to actually implement microservices and see what they’re all about.
Microservices are the current hype in the software architecture community. However, microservices can be used in many different scenarios to reach different goals. Self-contained Systems (SCS) represent one approach to achieving some of those goals while avoiding many common pitfalls.
In this article, Vaughn Vernon, author of “Implementing Domain- Driven Design”, “Reactive Messaging Patterns with the Actor Model”, and “Domain-Driven Design Distilled”, will teach you a first approach method to designing microservices, giving you a workable foundation to build on. He will introduce you to reactive software development and summarize how you can use Scala and Akka as a go-to toolkit for developing reactive microservices.
Moving to microservices? Great but the first question before you write a single line of code is: How do you organize your codebase — do you create a repository for each service or do you create a single ‘mono repo’ for all services?
In this article, Clement Escoffier, Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat, gives an overview of Vert.x and goes through an example of reactive microservice application while focusing on the different key parts of such a system.
In this article, we shortly summarize the common characteristics of Microservices, talk about the main challenges of building Microservices, and describe how product teams can leverage AWS to overcome those challenges.
As many startups of the last decade, SoundCloud’s architecture started as a Ruby on Rails monolith, which later had to be broken into microservices to cope with the growing size and complexity of the site. The microservices initially ran on an in-house container management and deployment platform. Recently, the company has started to migrate to Kubernetes. In their talk at the DevOpsCon, Fabian Reinartz and Björn Rabenstein demonstrated the current Prometheus setup at SoundCloud, monitoring a large-scale Kubernetes cluster.
Gartner projects that the worldwide public cloud services market will grow 16.5 percent by the end of this year. 451 Research found that 40 percent of companies surveyed are going to prioritize the mobilization of general business apps over the next two years. Trends like these have led developers to rapidly adopt microservices for building applications. As business needs change, forward-thinking companies are modifying, scaling and updating their apps continuously with the help of microservices.
JAX London speaker Daniel van Gils offers a sneak peek at his workshop and teaches you how to create the RIGHT minimal lovable image for your microservice architecture and run it in production.
No software architect can resist the temptation to talk about their experience with microservices. We launched an interview series with experts who talked about the benefits and challenges of microservices, when people should not use them and what impact they have on an organization. Our fourth interviewee is Josh Long, the Spring Developer Advocate at Pivotal.

Our third interviewee is Daniel Bryant, Chief Scientist at OpenCredo and speaker at the upcoming JAX London.
MicroProfile 1.0 is intentionally feature-constrained so that a broader community can define its roadmap. The parties involved (Red Hat, IBM, TomiTribe, Payara, LJC and now SouJava) have agreed on a base set of features that defines solid and stable roots on which to grow and have added multiple member organizations and contributors. But that’s not all.
