Microservices aren't just for unicorns: meet fabric8.io

Business needs are getting more complex, demanding, and changing rapidly. You tried all the past hyped technologies and architectures but those promises have been under-delivering. Can microservices help here?

In this talk we’ll dig deeper to figure out what are the bottlenecks so we can help organizations really achieve some of the unmet promises in the wake of technology hype – including microservices.

One of those bottlenecks is complexity of platform and technology choice. You cannot build complex adaptive systems on top of complex platforms. Kubernetes simplifies the underlying platform and its constituent components, and that's what makes fabric8.io so powerful.

Fabric8 is a fully integrated, out of the box, microservices platform. Hook into well-known CI/CD tools like github, jenkins, nexus, et al, and build out end to end continuous delivery pipelines with promotion and approval processes that can be customized to suit your projects. CI/CD also integrates with LetsChat/Slack/Ryver using Hubot automation to deliver transparency and control to enable organizations to practice ChatOps. Once you've got your microservices being built and deployed, leverage the built-in API Management, middleware visualization console, chaos monkey, and centralized logging/metrics/monitoring to operationalize your services and ensure they stay resilient.

Fabric8 runs on top of a Kubernetes API, including OpenShift, GKE, Tectonic, and Kismatic.

If this talk is selected for 30min breakout, I'll do a 15 min overview and 15 live demo of building microservices with Fabric8 on top of Kubernetes.

If this talk is selected for 90min workshop, I'll have about 30 mins overview and 60mins interactive, cooperative labs/demos to guide participants through the fabric8 platform and build out a set of microservices.
