Today Avi Networks and Red Hat spelled out the details of their collaboration to help enterprises develop and deploy production-ready microservices applications. The announcement comes on the eve of the Red Hat Summit in Boston. The joint solution with the Avi Vantage Platform providing container networking services for applications built on Red Hat Openshift will be demonstrated at the conference.
If you have been following the evolution of microservices architectures and container-based applications, you have also heard ample references to the need for visibility.
Today Avi Networks announced a new solution to enable enterprises to deliver production-ready microservices applications. Microservices architecture it seems is the tech world’s answer to applications that are “too big to fail.” Business disruptions caused by application downtimes have driven enterprises to find ways to break large applications into bite-sized components that can be independently deployed and updated without causing major outages. Light-weight container based infrastructure (e.g. Docker) along with resource and cluster management solutions such as Mesos are a natural fit for microservices applications. Assembling production-ready microservices applications requires a combination of infrastructure services, the application components themselves, and a range of application services.
