Using Docker containers and microservices to speed application development
As DevOps ideas gain hold, savvy application development teams are looking for the next area of optimization to speed software releases and improve their quality, while reducing maintenance. For many, it’s microservices.
Microservices makes applications easier to build and maintain - which makes it easier to deliver technology quickly in competitive landscapes.
By breaking applications down into smaller, composable pieces that work together, they can be developed concurrently.
That means that individual development groups can choose their preferences, their timelines and process: Group A can develop in Ruby while group B can choose Python, requirements for each component may be different and changing. Separation makes it possible to update individual components without having to worry about monolithic code changes.
- Faster code delivery, faster time to market
- Reduced cost of “failure” supports innovation (fail fast/fail cheap)
- Autonomous development teams can do more than just update, they are now free to create new services
- New infrastructure provisioning is fast and consistent via automation and self-service
- Fewer day to day interdependencies between Dev and Ops, allowing both to focus on their core strengths.
