When planning a cloud architecture or modernizing an existing application, Kubernetes enables the benefits of a cloud to be exploited. In numerous companies, only isolated solutions have become established over the years; there is no uniform functionality and barrier-free access from management to logistics to accounting. Kubernetes offers the opportunity to combine all the components needed for applications to run within modular containers. In this way, for example, changes can be made to the software it contains at any time. Containers also have the advantage of being able to be transferred quickly and easily from one computing environment to another.
The use of containers makes it possible to subdivide extensive cloud applications into several small micro-services that can communicate with each other during the entire development process. This means that the scalability and performance of the cloud can be effectively increased and used to the maximum. The use of this form of IT architecture enables teams in companies to work essentially more independently, while special interactions are highlighted across departments. Modules are loosely coupled to one another and divided into different programs. Each one has its own functional responsibility. A cumbersome and less flexible overall organisation is no longer necessary. In addition, it is easy to subject individual software components to various tests in order to permanently optimise the provision.
Just a few years ago, huge monolithic software systems were common. But the bigger the package, the more difficult it was to manage. Modern micro-service applications consist of many sub-components such as user administration, data collections or interfaces to third-party systems. If each microservice acts as an independent system, the separate service clearly focuses on the defined tasks. Maximum reliability and perfection increase the entire software life cycle. This maximum scalability has further advantages, namely a light and relatively transparent container architecture, with the software itself being decoupled from the host environment.
Micro-services form individual technical aspects within an application. In contrast to monolithic approaches, the biggest difference lies in the way in which applications are selected and scaled in their core functions. Each service and function can be implemented, developed, or removed independently from all others. This means that specific requirements are made possible without influencing the peripherals.
Short development cycles offer the opportunity to react to rapid market launches with agile implementations. Updates can be carried out much more flexibly, the entire application remains highly scalable. A promising option for servers and infrastructures to further expand the robustness of the services. In contrast to monolithic approaches, the entire application does not have to be set up again immediately in these cases, but rather it is sufficient to repair exactly this component in the event of a component failure.
Reactive Web Applications
Reactive web applications modernize companies, increase sales and expand the programming options of developers. Reactive applications give developers and operators the security that platforms will always remain accessible even when there is a lot of traffic and that they will “heal” themselves in the event of a fault. As many resources are used as the current situation requires. Reactivity is particularly important for web platforms that work with a very large audience and have high standards of service quality.
