Microservices architecture continues to be a trending topic in the application development world, largely because it makes apps easier to build, expand, and scale compared to traditional monolithic architecture. But there are numerous considerations that go into the use of microservices. One of them is how to package and deploy the services. In a previous blog, we discussed the use of containers for microservices. In this one, the focus is on serverless. Microservices and Serverless Defined What are microservices? As

In a previous blog, we talked about how microservices have changed application modernization. A somewhat related concept that’s also had an impact is that of containers. And, as it so happens, microservices and containers work well together for app modernization. As a refresher, with microservices an app is broken down into a collection of small, loosely coupled services. Each service is continuously developed and separately maintained, and communicates through a clearly defined, lightweight framework to achieve a business objective

That’s especially true if the apps being moved weren’t designed and built with the cloud in mind. Enter application modernization. App modernization entails taking existing apps — typically on-premise, legacy, and monolithic — and changing

For all its well-documented benefits, the cloud isn’t the place for all workloads. Some don’t perform the same in the cloud as they do in on-premise environments. Others may be restricted to an on-premise data center or on-premise private cloud due to regulatory or other requirements. That was the case for a recent ClearScale customer. A sports and entertainment ticketing company, wanted to migrate from its on-premise, bare metal infrastructure to the AWS Cloud. However, data privacy and
