A microservice architecture breaks down monolithic applications into a series of discrete, decoupled services that allow teams of developers to evolve and scale each microservice independently. This flexibility is required to build modern, cloud-native applications. Traditional application and data integration tools, themselves monolithic pieces of software, aren’t up to the job. So how exactly do you create, deploy and manage microservices?
In this episode of Pivotal Insights, Pivotal’s Sina Sojoodi talks with host Jeff Kelly about how Pivotal clients across industries are turning to Spring Cloud Data Flow (SCDF) to do just that. SCDF is an orchestration tool that enables developers to create composable microservices, including streaming and batch data pipelines, and deploy them on the run-time environment of their choice. Sina, a cloud platform project lead at Pivotal, and Jeff discuss the tangible benefits SCDF delivers to developers, including improving productivity, and share examples of the types of microservices Pivotal customers are developing and orchestrating with SCDF.
