From IBM CIC Romania
Ana-Maria Mihălceanu is a custom application development enthusiast, Trailhead Ranger and a constant adopter of challenging technical scenarios. Some of her older experiments are available on Dzone. In 2016, as tech passionate for cloud application development she achieved IBM Certified Application Developer - Cloud Platform v1. Since then, she has enriched her cloud expertise by learning and certifying as a Salesforce Developer and attained a better understanding on how to integrate different types of cloud offerings. As a result, she would like to share with the audience one of her recent experiments. Other passions? The knowledge hunt through reading and growing fashion skills through shopping.
Change is inevitable, but performance is optional. How to make your application evolution resilient, while speeding up your configuration and deployment? The answer is containerization and I will detail the journey of a java app to Kubernetes cloud deployment and later templatization using Helm.
Nowadays many projects are packaging their releases in Docker images and regard this step as the ultimate runtime state. However, the journey of the packaged application continues by connecting it with peer containers or services. In my talk, I will provide a demonstration of how a Java application can go to Kubernetes cluster deployment, using Helm Charts as templates for interconnected containerized application. Personal observations and recommendations will conclude the experiment.
