Node.js Microservices: Developing Node.js Apps Based On Microservices

Node.js application developers, in the ever-evolving business landscape, enjoy tangible advantages while incorporating microservices in Node.js apps development. The microservice architecture, or microservices, is a distinct method of software systems development, which attempts to create modules that are single-function, with well-defined operations and interfaces.


The Cloud 2.0 Era: Observability in Distributed Systems

In the 2010 decade, we saw a massive migration of infrastructures into the cloud, along with many new technologies and companies being born “cloud-native.” Although there is still a significant percentage of worldwide data stored and applications run on-premises, the 2020 decade will be focused on a new era of making clouds, and applications that run on them, more efficient.

Kong Demo: Protecting Microservices with Servicemesh

In this interactive demo, we will show how to encrypt and protect all services inside a service mesh using the Kuma Mutual TLS policy. We will then demonstrate how to control traffic permissions among each individual service using the TrafficPermission policy. In addition to security, Kuma provides traffic metrics using Prometheus and Grafana dashboards, as well as traffic tracing (APM) and traffic logging integrated into managed cloud logging and analytics services.

Why Microservices Require Unified Tools for Authorization

Cloud-native organizations embracing microservices are running into an unavoidable security question: how to handle microservice authorization controls? The central problem is this: unlike monolithic app structures, microservices architectures expose dozens more functionality through APIs, which can leave them vulnerable to attack.


How APM Is Being Revolutionized: Microservices, AIOps, and Beyond

Application Performance Management, or APM, has existed as a discipline within the IT industry since at least the early 2000s, when tools like Wily first appeared on the scene. Yet despite being a relatively “old” type of technology (by IT standards, at least), the APM ecosystem is witnessing massive innovations. You might even say that we’re in the midst of an APM revolution. Here's why.


Deploying Citrix ADC with Service Mesh on Rancher

As a network of microservices changes and grows, the interactions between them can be difficult to manage and understand. That’s why it’s handy to have a service mesh as a separate infrastructure layer. A service mesh is an approach to solving microservices at scale. It handles routing and terminating traffic, monitoring and tracing, service delivery and routing, load balancing, circuit breaking and mutual authentication.
