Webinar Playback: Microservices Virtualization: How to Share Shared-Nothing Microservices

Microservices are all the rage. An important characteristic of microservices is “shared nothing” … the idea of including necessary libraries or other elements in each microservice. By not sharing libraries outside of the microservice, organizations can support unlimited horizontal scalability, avoid overburdening the network, and avoid unnecessary dependencies that can lead to failures.

“Shared nothing,” however, doesn’t mean that microservices don’t interact with each other or with other code in your application environment. In fact, developers may “share” where different applications may interact with an identical instances of the same microservice code.

slide5_001As a result, building shared services introduces new types of dependencies, especially when DevOps teams are implementing large distributed applications. Service Virtualization is necessary to make virtual services available to developers who are creating these microservices or any other code. Service Virtualization is important to ensure microservices will work properly as they scale up during continuous integration.

In this webinar, architecture expert Jason Bloomberg will drill down into the microservices architecture principle of “shared nothing.” He will explain the challenges of implementing shared nothing microservices, and how Service Virtualization can address those and other constraint challenges. You’ll also hear from Scott Edwards, Director of Product Marketing at CA Technologies, on using Service Virtualization to remove bottlenecks throughout the SDLC to drive innovations to market, faster.
