Microservice and SOA architectures are becoming increasingly common today, even in traditional environments. As your systems grow more distributed, you’ll face challenges beyond those seen in monolithic applications.
In this session, we’ll look at modern tools like Consul and Vault for solving these problems of service discovery and monitoring, configuration management, and security.
Steve and Amit will approach the topic from an application development perspective and a DevOps perspective, respectively. We’ll cover popular abstraction layers such as Spring Cloud Config, but focus on framework-agnostic solutions.
