Essential Guide: Empowering Cloud Through MicroservicesDecember 21st 2022 - 09:30 AM
This Essential Guide shows how microservices can deliver the ultimate in scalability, flexibility, and resilience… but to truly leverage their value, we must not only change our approach to infrastructure design, but also develop our mindsets.
Monolithic software designs are rapidly disappearing to the history books as a combination of virtualized computing and microservices are taking broadcast infrastructures to new levels.
By shifting our mindsets and thinking in terms of functionality, we instantly remove the limitations that monolithic software of the past has tied us to. The distributed nature of microservices facilitates dynamic mindsets which empowers broadcasters to design systems to meet the peak demand of their viewers, without having to pay the price for procuring often unused equipment.
Microservices are not limited to specific hardware. A broadcaster can build their own on-prem infrastructure while at the same time taking advantage of public cloud systems to scale their systems as needed. The abstraction of microservices from hardware delivers unparalleled opportunity to scale resource within seconds.
This Essential Guide has been written for technologists, broadcast engineers, their managers, and anybody looking to seamlessly create scalable, flexible, and resilient broadcast infrastructures using microservice technologies.
