Extensive Article about Microservices, Containers and Cloud-Native Platforms

An extensive Article at Voxxed at about this topic discussing the concepts and requirements for microservices, containers and cloud-native architectures. It also includes a slide deck from a conference talk.


JavaOne 2016 - Journey from an On-Premise ESB to Cloud-Native Middleware Microservices: 

This recording shows the talk by Kai Wähner at JavaOne 2016 in San Francisco: "Cloud-Native Microservices in the Middleware World". It discusses the journey of enterprises moving from on premise middleware deployments to a hybrid integration architecture leveraging microservices and cloud-native platforms. 


15min Interview: Overview about Cloud-Native Microservices and Middleware

This 15 minute interview by Kai Wähner gives an overview about why you should care about microservices, containers and cloud native architectures. It also discusses container and PaaS technologies such as Docker, Kubernetes, Cloud Foundry or Red Hat Open Shift.


The Need for a Hybrid Integration Platform

A Hybrid Integration Architecture is getting the new default in many enterprises to solve new challenges and realize different requirements. Mission critical core services need different infrastructure and middleware than agile and innovative new edge services. The line of business has its own requirements and wants respectively needs to work faster and adopt new ideas more quickly than the central IT departments. The Need for a Hybrid Integration Platform explains different components of a Hybrid Integration Platform like ESB, Container-based PaaS, iPaaS or iSaaS and how these are related to microservices, container technologies like Docker and cloud-native open source platforms like Kubernetes or Cloud Foundry.
