Red Hat Cloud Native App Dev Framingham 2018
"Cloud Native Applications While it is easy to see the benefits of building cloud-native applications and microservices, it can take some time between running some initial code and reaching the point of a production-ready delivery. As you move applications to the cloud and migrate to microservices, complexity increases because of the larger number of connected pieces. A slow connection can lead to cascading failures that are difficult to diagnose due to exhaustion of available resources as the number of outstanding requests continually increases. In addition, infrastructure concerns, such as resiliency and security, can take time away from working on code that provides real business value. OpenShift Application Runtimes provides modern, cloud-native, multicloud application runtimes. These containerized runtimes provide a prescriptive developer experience to help you quickly start creating new cloud-native applications and cloud-enabling existing applications. Multiple frameworks, along with infrastructure components for resiliency, security, and operations, are integrated to help you deliver code that is production-ready. A completely streamlined development and deployment platform is possible because OpenShift Application Runtimes is based on Red Hat OpenShift, a container application platform that is designed for open hybrid clouds."
