Digital Transformation with Kubernetes, Containers, and Microservices

With David Ogren, Principal Enterprise Architect

Has your organization reached the limit of what your legacy systems can do? Are you unable to meet business SLAs like agility, reliability, and performance, or hitting technical limitations around scaling, operations, and system maintenance?

If so, then your system architecture is probably ready for cloud modernization; however, simply lifting and shifting legacy applications onto containerized infrastructure with Docker and Kubernetes will not get you the benefits of going cloud native.

In this talk by David Ogren, Principal Enterprise Architect at Lightbend, we draw from experiences helping our clients successfully create, migrate to, and manage cloud-native system architectures. We look at some of the common pitfalls and anti-patterns of modernization efforts, and some of the best practices for taking an incremental approach to transforming legacy systems. Specifically, we’ll cover:

  • How to frame project goals - How to leverage business SLAs to encourage organizational support for your modernization initiative
  • Why Reactive Microservices - Identifying the critical success factors for microservice-based applications, and how the principles of Reactive Systems can guide your design choices
  • Why containers and orchestration - How to adapt your development lifecycle for success with container orchestration using tools like Kubernetes and OpenShift
  • How to migrate successfully - How to choose a migration strategy that balances the competing goals of your modernization project
