Rancher Labs and Avi Networks: Production-Ready Applications

Organizations are adopting an app-centric approach to computing in their data centers and clouds. Microservices architectures are increasingly used by app-centric enterprises to achieve continuous development and delivery, scaling, and isolation through independent services. While microservices applications offer several advantages compared to monolithic applications, challenges with supporting application services remain. For example, traditional appliance-based application delivery and services solutions cannot support the vast amount of east-west interactions between the services and offer no visibility to application components and their interactions. These application delivery controllers (ADCs) were not designed for dynamic environments where change is constant, automation is a must, and self-service for developers is expected. Application developers require two main capabilities: (a) they need flexibility and programmability to develop, test and deploy their apps quickly; (b) they need visibility into application interactions to enforce the required security posture and pinpoint the specific service that caused an application outage.

We are one weekend away from OpenStack Summit!  As I pack my bags, I was thinking back to the previous summits I attended in Tokyo, Vancouver, and Paris.  The community, the projects and the stability thereof, have evolved beyond everyone’s expectations and to the naysayers’ disbelief.

Application Services 101 | Dodging Microservices Pitfalls

avatar Ranga Rajagopalan
Posted on Apr 14, 2016 8:57:30 AM

Traditional applications were built as static monoliths that were deployed and managed by IT. When a new application had to be deployed, IT would create a DNS entry for the application, allocate a virtual IP (VIP) and configure that VIP on a load balancer for the application to be discovered by other clients. In the best case scenario, this process took about 4-6 weeks. Enterprises have collectively recognized the inefficiencies in this throw-over-wall deployment hand-off of the application from developers to IT operations. There were no alternatives to this model in a data center dominated by purpose-built appliances owned by IT.
