We’ve all been there. We’ve had this lovely, monolithic application purring happily away on some platform-as-a-service. However, the application and team are growing and we need to separate out functionality into independent services to keep moving forward without stepping on one anothers’ toes.
This talk deconstructs the “perceived simplicity” of platform-as-a-services and answers some critical questions:
What are the essential components of a Platform as a Service?
When is building our own PaaS worthwhile?
How and where should we leverage docker in the provision/build/release/deploy/un-provision application life-cycle?
This talk stems from a 6 month engagement building a platform as a service for a micro-service based architecture.
