Moving from Monoliths to Microservices: A Four Step Series

We want to ditch the pitch and get straight to the point in this new webinar series dedicated to microservices. From design to troubleshooting, no matter where you are in your journey to move from ‘monolith’ to fully observable microservices - at least one of these sessions is designed to give you all the information you need. Feel free to join all four webinars, or just skip to the ones best suited to you:

Step 1: The Fundamentals - Are Microservices Worth the Hype?

Date/Time: Thursday 5 May, 11:00am - 11:45am BST

Your kick-start guide to understanding microservices will include:

  • Current context for IT and DevOps practitioners, and why microservices are so popular
  • The differences between monolith apps, microservices and distributed monoliths, etc.
  • The benefits and challenges of microservices

Step 2: Know Before You Go - Design, Architecture & Deployment Considerations

Date/Time: Thursday 12 May, 11:00am - 12:00pm BST

So you’ve decided you need microservices, but want to know more on how to deploy them. This session covers:

  • Design considerations such as; how to avoid distributed monoliths, sizing microservices, when not to use, required instrumentation, and what microservices do with data
  • Architecture options; containers or serverless? To saga or not to saga?
  • Key migration and deployment strategies


Step 3: Production - Getting Up and Running, Smoothly

Date/Time: Thursday 19 May, 11:00am - 12:00pm BST

Reached the stage of day-to-day life with microservices? Join this session to discover the reality of getting set up and running a smooth ship:

  • Understand how to make microservices more observable
  • Explore the distributed transactions challenges
  • What ‘microservices at scale’ really looks like

Step 4: The Hybrid World – Getting Full End-to-End Observability

Date/Time: Thursday 26 May, 11:00am - 11:45am BST

There’s life after adopting microservices, and this session offers:

  • A closer look at the microservices impact on AIOps strategies: How to deal with the tsunami of logs, metrics and traces, and;
  • A ‘how to’ guide on troubleshooting and investigating transactions (from microservices in the cloud to your on-prem mainframe)
