Monoliths in a Microservice World

There is no denying that cloud-native technologies like Kubernetes and the use of containers is the most dominant technology direction for solution development. But what about those solutions that have had years or decades of investment and embody much of our intellectual property? Do we try to eat the elephant, as the expression goes? Do we embrace Sam Newman’s view of microservices should be the last option, so if it works, leave it alone? Is there a middle path worth adopting?

In this session, we’ll explore the possibilities for monoliths within the current cloud native ecosystems by looking at options with containers, service meshes, and beyond. Attendees of this session will take away some ideas on how their monolith could work in this new world.
