Here are some reviews from past students who completed our Microservices Training:

I found there was a good amount of effort put in to tying the theory to more practical examples.
The instructor is really knowledgeable and he knew very well how to address questions with practical examples. I felt that he is highly knowledgeable, enthusiastic and delivered way more content than the courses's objectives. Very impressed.
I have an idea on how to apply this learning into something that can make a real big impact at work in a positive sense. Thank you for the training, this rocked!
A great instructor, he was full of knowledge and very helpful
Labs were fun, the group was very active and everyone enjoyed learning microservices and wanted to understand more by asking questions. All questions were answered
It was a real eye opener for everyone on all the possible technologies, concepts and proven patterns that we could use to make our product better

Microservices-Load Balancing, Monitoring and Tracing

A service mesh is a network of Microservices that make up applications and the interactions between them. Load balancing, monitoring, and tracing are some of the important requirements for a service mesh. In this Microservices Training video we discuss how Kubernetes helps in adding load balancing and failure recovery. We will also discuss how to monitor Microservices by using Prometheus and implement tracing by using Jaegar.

Frequently Asked Questions:

What is Microservices?

Microservices are a subset of a broader SOA context. Microservices architecture is a software development technique where applications are broken down into smaller, independent services, that are not dependent upon a specific coding language. It structures an application as independently deployable services that are accessible over common communication protocols.

What is microservices testing?

testing is the approaches that are taken to test Microservices independently. Because of the distributed nature of Microservices development, testing can be a big challenge. There are five layers of tests that are performed over Microservices – Unit Testing, Integration Testing, Component Testing, Contract Testing and End-to-End Testing.

How Microservices communicate?

Microservices use technology-agnostic protocols. There are two kinds of communication mechanisms that Microservices can use, asynchronous messaging and synchronous request/response.

How to build Microservices?

There are a number of application frameworks and platforms that facilitate

the creation and deployment of Microservices, e.g. Spring Boot, Dropwizard, and Node.js.

For more details, refer to our Developing Microservices Training course https://www.webagesolutions.com/courses/WA2684-developing-microservices

Are Microservices the Future?

Many companies are moving towards a Microservices way of creating software. Adopting Microservices allows organizations to achieve greater agility and realize lower costs. There are a number of motivating forces that drive the adoption of Microservices:

  • An increased demand for faster development and deployment cycles
  • The need for better testability of complex systems
  • Resilience to system failures
  • System scalability
