Containerization of cloud applications rapidly becomes the right (only) way to deploy complex systems architected with microservice approach in mind. Containers solve one of the fundamental issues of software development – dev/test/prod environments disparity. Using containers substantially lowers the risk of changing and deploying new versions of the applications and allows IT to closely follow business needs. However, containers alone cannot be treated as a silver bullet and a remedy to all challenges. Complex systems may consist of dozens or hundreds of containers (following the microservice way), in this case the complexity shifts from developing components to running and managing them in the production environment.
DevOps teams face different kind of challenges than in the traditional monolith approach. Fortunately, thanks to open source systems like Kubernetes, this challenge has been already addressed. Kubernetes, made by the cloud giant Google, has gained tremendous popularity recently and becomes de facto new “operating system/application server” in the modern cloud, quickly replacing any older technology. It handles and automates all the tasks needed to keep you application highly available and accessible from the outside word and allows you to manage complex network of inter-dependent containers which form the whole system.
The last missing part in the picture has less to do with running applications and more with answering the question – how to shorten time from commit to deploy on production. In other words, we need also a modern CI/CD environment, which natively supports containers and allows automatization of all unit testing, integration testing, deploying on the staging environment, handling different deployment pipelines etc.
Having huge experience with providing variety of cloud services, Oracle has designed a new generation of container native, cloud application platform. It consist of three main services:
We kindly invite you to this webinar which will cover basics of Oracle’s Container Platform offering, the Next generation of the Containers in the Cloud, and demonstrate key advantages of running application in the modern containerized cloud environment.
