Voxxed Article: Microservices, Containers and Cloud-Native Architectures for Middleware

Posted in Cloud, Cloud-Native, Docker, ESB, Microservices on June 2nd, 2016 by Kai Wähner

I wanna refer to a new article published today at Voxxed: “Microservices, Containers and Cloud-Native Architectures for Middleware“. Here is the summary:

Summary of the Article

The IT world is moving forward fast. I wrote about Microservices and whether that spells the death of the Enterprise Service Bus and other middleware a year ago. This article is a “follow-up” and update to discuss how relevant microservices, containers and a cloud-native architecture is for middleware. It is unbelievable how fast enterprises of all sizes are moving forward with these topics!

Microservices, Containers, Docker and a Cloud-Native Architecture in the Middleware World

Posted in API Management, BPM, Cloud, Cloud-Native, Docker, EAI, ESB, Java / JEE, Microservices, Middleware, SOA on April 22nd, 2016 by Kai Wähner

In April 2016, I had two talks at JPoint in Moscow, Russia. The first talk was an existing talk about “How to Apply Big Data Analytics and Machine Learning to Real Time Processing”. The second talk was a brand new one: “Microservices and Containers in the Middleware World”. This article discusses and shows the new slide deck about how middleware is related to Microservices, Containers, Docker and Cloud-Native Architectures.

Key takeaways of the talk:

  • A cloud-native architecture enables flexible and agile development
  • Modern middleware leverages containers, Microservices and a cloud-native architecture

Real World Use Cases and Success Stories for In-Memory Data Grids

Posted in Analytics, Big Data, Cloud, ESB, In Memory, Java / JEE, NoSQL on November 24th, 2014 by admin

NoSQL Matters Conference 2014

NoSQL Matters is a great conference about different NoSQL topics. A lot of great NoSQL products and use cases are presented. In November 2014, I had a talk about “Real World Use Cases and Success Stories for In-Memory Data Grids” in Barcelona, Spain. I discussed several different use cases, which our TIBCO customers implemented using our In-Memory Data Grid “TIBCO ActiveSpaces“. I will present the same content at data2day, a German conference in Karlsruhe about big data topics.

Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) Revisited in 2014

Posted in EAI, ESB, SOA on July 17th, 2014 by Kai Wähner

Today, I had a talk about “Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) Revisited in 2014” at Java Forum Stuttgart 2014, a great conference for developers and architects with 1600 attendees.

Enterprise Integration Patterns

Data exchanges between companies increase a lot. Hence, the number of applications which must be integrated increases, too. The emergence of service-oriented architectures and cloud computing boost this even more. The realization of these integration scenarios is a complex and time-consuming task because different applications and services do not use the same concepts, interfaces, data formats and technologies.

JBoss OneDayTalk 2013: “NoSQL Integration with Apache Camel – MongoDB, CouchDB, Neo4j, Cassandra, HBase, Hazelcast, Riak, etc.”

Posted in EAI, ESB, Java / JEE on October 24th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

JBoss OneDayTalk is a great annual event around open source development. I have done a talk about “NoSQL Integration with Apache Camel”. This blog post shows you the updated slide deck of this talk.

Abstract

SQL cannot solve several problems emerging with big data. A distributed, fault-tolerant architecture is necessary. NoSQL comes to the rescue, but therefore it does not use SQL as its query language or give full ACID guarantees. Thus, in the future you will have to learn new concepts and integrate these NoSQL databases as you integrate SQL databasestoday. The open source integration framework Apache Camel is already prepared for this challenging task.

Apache Camel and Talend ESB: Management and Monitoring of Integration Routes and SOAP / REST Web Services (JMX, OSGi, logstash, ElasticSearch, Kibana, hawtio)

Posted in ESB on July 15th, 2013 by Kai Wähner

A question every customer asks me: How can you manage and monitor integration routes implemented with Apache Camel (http://camel.apache.org/) and / or Talend ESB (http://en.talend.com/products/esb) (which is based on Apache Camel and also available as open source version). This blog post will show different alternatives to answer this question. The good news first: As Apache Camel and Talend ESB are based on open standards, you can use your own frameworks and tools if tooling of the product is not sufficient. So, I will not talk just about features of Apache Camel or Talend ESB, but also about additional options. Except for Talend Administration Center (user interface on top of Talend ESB’s service monitoring and clustering features), all tools are open source. Talend Administration Center is only available in Talend’s enterprise editions.
