Running, building and deploying microservices is hard. Either if you try to chunk a monolith application into small pieces or want to start a project from scratch, you’ll need to figure out how to deal with: security, service discovery, networking, monitoring, persistence, orchestration and cluster management. Once you manage to have a microservices architecture in place, you’ll hit other challenges: scaling, infrastructure monitoring, building, running and shipping to your users.
In this talk I’ll cover what you need to take into account when you run microservices and how those problems are addressed in MANTL I’ll also look into a continuous delivery pipeline for microservices using Shipped
MANTL is an open source platform for building microservices started by Cisco. It combines the best open source technologies to deliver an out-of-the box open platform for microservices development. You can contribute to MANTL: https://github.com/CiscoCloud/mantl
Shipped is a CI/CD tool that will be released later this year by Cisco and is natively integrated with MANTL. Shipped is in open beta now: ciscoshipped.io
