WEBINAR REPLAY

Modernizing Applications with Microservices and DCOS

With Aaron Williams, Head of Advocacy, Mesosphere

The traditional architecture that enterprises run their businesses on has typically been delivered as monolithic applications running in a virtualized, on-premise infrastructure. Public and private cloud technologies have changed everything, but if the applications are not designed, or re-designed, appropriately, then it is impossible to take advantage of the advances in both distributed application services and hybrid infrastructure. Consequently, enterprise architects are looking to microservices-based architectures as a means to modernize their legacy applications.

This webinar with Lightbend and partner Mesosphere will introduce a new framework specifically designed to help developers modernize legacy Java EE applications into systems of microservices and then discuss exactly what is required to run these distributed systems at enterprise scale.

Markus Eisele, Enterprise Advocate, Lightbend, Inc.

Markus Eisele is a Java Champion, former Java EE Expert Group member, Java community leader of German DOAG, founder of JavaLand, reputed speaker at Java conferences around the world, and a very well known figure in the Enterprise Java world. He works for Lightbend.


You’ve known and seen him at different conferences and Java User Groups meetups or read his blogs or are following his social media presence. While talking about middleware for many years you’ll continue to hear him talk about enterprise grade Java going forward. Focussed on education about the latest trends in building enterprise systems in a reactive way with Java.


He’s been looking into containers and microservices architectures more deeply and also wrote a book about modern Java EE Design Patterns with O’Reily. He is excited to educate more about how microservices architectures can integrate and complement existing platforms, and will also talk about how to successfully build resilient applications with Java.
