Presented at the Pivotal Toronto Users Group, March 2017
Cloud-native applications form the foundation for modern, cloud-scale digital solutions, and the patterns and practices for cloud-native at the app tier are becoming widely understood – statelessness, service discovery, circuit breakers and more. But little has changed in the data tier. Our modern apps are often connected to monolithic shared databases that have monolithic practices wrapped around them. As a result, the autonomy promised by moving to a microservices application architecture is compromised.
With lessons from the application tier to guide us, the industry is now figuring out what the cloud-native architectural patterns are at the data tier. Join us to explore some of these with Cornelia Davis, a five year Cloud Foundry veteran who is now focused on cloud-native data. As it happens, every microservice needs a cache and this evening will drill deep on that topic. She’ll cover a variety of caching patterns and use cases, and demonstrate how their use helps preserve the autonomy that is driving agile software delivery practices today.
