Microservices

Light-weight modular services deployments

MICROSERVICES ARE MACRO-ESSENTIAL IN OUR DISRUPTIVE WORLD

Being nimble and agile, innovating at the speed of light and sprinting ahead of program deadlines is a strategic goal for many government agencies and aerospace and defense organizations. Building a solid foundation for continuous innovation means the rapid adoption of new technologies like Microservices to align IT with the demands of the mission. Plus, with Enterprise Integration evolving, you need to simplify the monolithic architecture of your systems while providing faster time to market for new integrations.

What can Microservices Deliver for You:

  • Unlock the hidden value of your data and unique capabilities
  • Extend your reach to new users and partners
  • Create new business models
  • Create an exceptional and omni-channel user experience
  • Accelerate your enterprise mobile and cloud strategies

TOP 5 REASONS TO USE WEBMETHODS INTEGRATION PLATFORM FOR MICROSERVICES INSTEAD OF ANYTHING ELSE ON THE MARKET

  1. Scale to your hearts content.
    The webMethods Microservices Container (MSC) is lightweight and will scale up, down or out to meet your divergent needs. It is equally capable as a container in Point of Sales (POS) deployments or in massively horizontally scalable implementations.
  2. Using multiple programming languages is an option that speaks to you.
    The webMethods MSC is independent and has always been programming-model-agnostic and multi-container capable. From its inception, it has been designed for the polyglot programming paradigm. This means you can use different programming languages as needed in a single solution. As a container, the webMethods MSC ships with hundreds of pre-built useful APIs and services, frameworks, as well as EDA and in-memory data grid support. The MSC supports the open standards, security standards and wire protocols needed by modern-day applications.
  3. Make changes on the fly – live.
    Services hosted in the MSC are “hot swappable” and can be changed safely while the container is still running. This feature makes it very relevant to the Microservices architecture; as Microservices change, the corresponding services on the MSC layer can be changed without needing to bring the server down.
  4. Connect all your “things” and applications.
    Microservices-style architectures require connectivity to a variety of data sources, storage technologies and applications. The webMethods MSC has a full range of connectors to support the most modern standards, such as OData, REST, and the full complement of SOAP-based Web-service support.
  5. Support for Docker.
    Docker lets you easily pack, distribute and manage applications within containers. An open source project that automates the deployment of applications inside software containers, Docker is a platform that webMethods MSC readily supports.
