Micro Services Architecture = Death of Enterprise Service Bus (ESB)?

Posted in API Management, Cloud, EAI, ESB, In Memory, Java / JEE on January 8th, 2015 by Kai Wähner

These days, it seems like everybody is talking about microservices. You can read a lot about it in hundreds of articles and blog posts, but my recommended starting point would be this article by Martin Fowler, which initiated the huge discussion about this new architectural concept. This article is about the challenges, requirements and best practices for creating a good microservices architecture, and what role an Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) plays in this game.

Let’s begin with a little bit of history about Service-oriented Architecture (SOA) and Enterprise Service Bus to find out why microservices have become so trendy.

Book Review “Cloud Computing Architected – Solution Design Handbook” by John Rhoton and Risto Haukioja

Posted in Cloud on October 15th, 2011 by admin

“Cloud Computing Architected – Solution Design Handbook” by John Rhoton and Risto Haukioja was published by Recursive Press in May 2011.

This book is a great addition to other books about cloud computing.

Why? It does NOT give a high-level overview of cloud computing. It does NOT explain the business value. Finally, it does NOT contain tutorials for any specific cloud products.

So what is the content of the book? It covers architectural options for designing a cloud. The book explains many important decisions which have to be done when creating a cloud service or a cloud application.
