Ops-friendly microservices: Front to back

Ops-friendly microservices: Front to back

There's more to microservices than just being small. Modern service-oriented architectures typically reside in more volatile environments, and the lifespan of a single service instance is much shorter than it used to be. Rick Fast explores how to design services and their infrastructure to allow for dynamic placement, resiliency, monitoring, and discovery.

Using repeatable/shareable environments built with Docker Compose, Rick Fast demonstrates examples of how to build ops-friendly microservices and the environments they live in, discussing differing options for microservice architectures without being opinionated about specific technologies. Rick offers a high-level overview of basic concerns before deep diving into each. Each section includes runnable code examples using local infrastructure.
