How To Capture The Benefits Of Microservice Design

Jeffrey S. Hammond and John R. Rymer

Developing software using microservice design is the hot new approach. Why? Microservices promise implementation exibility, graceful scaling, faster delivery, and higher resiliency. But comprehensive microservice architectures are too complex for most enterprise AD&D teams, so developers are finding pragmatic and incremental ways to gain the benefits of microservice design via new programming models and platform frameworks. Read this report to learn about these emerging methods and their impact.

Benefits Of The Actor Model For Cloud Computing: A Pragmatic Overview For Java Architects

Webinar Replay, Jeffrey Hammond and Jonas Bonér

As enterprise development teams increase the time they spend using cloud computing, many are challenged by a move from a scale-up (monolithic) to a scale-out (distributed) architecture. Reactive system development and microservices are two evolving answers that architects are embracing, but making them work well at scale calls for a departure from the traditional approach of object-oriented programming models and defensive programming through try-catch, which is now being replaced by a highly-resilient supervision model and a "let it crash" philosophy.

In this webinar for Architects, guest speaker Jeffrey Hammond, Forrester Vice-President and Principal Analyst joins Jonas Bonér, CTO/Co-founder of Lightbend and creator of Akka, the actor-based, message-driven runtime for the JVM, to discuss one emerging programming pattern that’s gaining popularity with teams developing for the cloud––the Actor model. They will discuss some history, why the Actor model is a better fit for large, scale-out systems and microservices delivery, the types of workloads using it today, and how to implement an Actor-based system in your existing Java environment.
