Microservices & Containers
Applications are becoming more and more dynamic, with every month or even every week new
features being added or split out. Traditional application architectures have proven a nightmare to
build such dynamic systems in a reliable and fast way. Therefore, the architecture of applications is
moving more and more towards a microservice architecture.
Additionally, the high amount of users requiring different parts of the application backend requires a
more flexible approach then traditional virtualized servers. To this end, container based service
hosting has found a strong penetration in the market.
This session will discuss the approach of both methods, their similarities and their coupled and
synchronous rise in the market.
