Microservices Architecture – A Different Approach

We Take Different Approach to Classic Microservices Architecture, with “Microservices & Containerization for the Rest of Us”.

While microservices has recently emerged as a leading technology practice for application development at highly influential firms, a traditional microservices architecture and containerization approach carry a number of significant commitments that may well place them beyond the reach of most potential adopters.

Organizations are looking at microservices as a way to address the modern business imperatives for speed, agility, and scalability, yet full adoption can be costly and highly disruptive to ongoing operations.

That is where Pneuron comes in. By pre-integrating service design and deployment capabilities with advanced execution functionality within its advanced containers technology, our platform eliminates the significant integration risk so common to the early adoption of new technology and paradigms.

What are the Barriers to Adopting a Traditional Microservices Architecture?

While a “classic” microservices architecture style clearly has attractive features from a technology point of view, organizations must have the commensurate expertise, staffing, and budgets to fully embrace the necessary changes required for its adoption, including:

  • Reorganization of development and test resources into smaller, holistically staffed teams that manage the full lifecycle of a given service.
  • Introduction of new container technologies that allow implementation and runtime support in multiple, diverse technologies and platforms.
  • Investment in tooling to manage, scale, and handle disruptions to services, which introduces increased integration and support risk for IT operations.

What Makes Pneuron “Microservices for the Rest of Us”?

While staying true to many of the “classic” microservices architecture tenets, Pneuron went significantly further. We foresaw that adoption of the techniques now called microservices would require extensive investment in new technologies, re-training of staff, and wholesale changes in management processes.

That is why Pneuron pre-built key supporting technologies and capabilities into our container and across our entire platform – to free solution designers, architects, and systems managers from the crippling dependency on integration with other platforms, and from highly disruptive process changes.

The Pneuron platform natively handles key operational and management requirements in a consistent and centralized way without inhibiting the creativity and speed promised by the discrete build, deploy, and operation of services. These changes allow solution designers to stay focused on logical design and rapid value realization – just where the business demands it be.

As such, the features of Pneuron’s microservices-style architecture include:

  • Development Flexibility: such that new solutions can be executed on the most advantaged platform or service
  • Non-Invasive: so as to minimize disruption to ongoing operations and speed solution deployment
  • Adaptability: such that new technology, new requirements, and new sources of value can be readily integrated into existing or new solutions
  • Dynamic Scalability: such that varying workloads can be automatically and cost effectively serviced.

With its emphasis on simplifying the experience of building, deploying, and executing services-based solutions, Pneuron’s ‘different kind of microservices architecture’ provides an excellent entry point for organizations wishing to rapidly innovate, deploy, and scale this new architectural style.
