Abstract

Evolution of IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) technology accelerated cloud adoption. Not having to buy hardware for peak capacity and pay as you go model by the hour/minute was a major contributor to adoption initially. With PaaS and SaaS technologies it further changed how we build and consume applications. We now have rich toolsets for automating server configurations, repeatable builds, deployment, and even entire data center management through consistent configuration (via Kubernetes). The development and management of microservices and enterprise apps still have room for improvement.

In this talk, Chintana will explore open-source technology that can be used to manage, deploy and track a complete enterprise architecture from business services, apps, databases, and legacy apps. We will look at a governance structure that can be used to bring order into an ever-growing number of microservices. We look at how a code-first approach simplifies and streamlines service development and management.
