  6. Adrian Cockcroft on Microservices, Terraservices and Serverless Computing

    Summary: For our inaugural podcast QCon chair Wesley Reisz talks to Adrian Cockcroft, who works for Battery Ventures where he advises the firm and its portfolio companies about technology issues and also assists with deal sourcing and due diligence. Why listen to this podcast • Over the last year a large number of frameworks and libraries for building microservices have emerged and we’re seeing a lot of rapid change. • The stack you choose will often be based on the main language you use, so for example Netflix’s stack is language agnostic but the tooling is very Java-centric. • Architectural choices can have a profound impact on success, so some-thing as simple as an overly long timeout with retries can cause your system to suffer from a congestion collapse problem. Have a large timeout at the edge, and progressively smaller and smaller timeouts as you get deeper into the system. • Start with a monolith and move to a distributed architecture when you need to because of team size or to get better separation of concerns. • Other disruptive trends include “serverless architecture” like AWS Lambda, and open source itself which is perhaps the true definition of disruptive. More on this • You can access our in-depth coverage on microservices http://bit.ly/1SRnFz3. • You can als…

  7. a16z Podcast: All About Microservices

    "Incremental change may be good theory, but in practice you have to have a big enough stick to hit everybody with to make everything move at once". So shares Adrian Cockcroft, who helped lead Netflix’s migration from datacenter to the cloud — and from monolithic to microservices architecture — when their streaming business (the "stick"!) was exploding.

    So how did they — and how can other companies — make such big, bet-the-company kind of moves, without getting mired in fanatical internal debates? Does organizational structure need to change, especially if moving from a more product-, than project-based, approach? What happens to security? And finally, what happens to the role of CIOs; what can/should they do?

    Most interestingly: How will the entire industry be affected as companies not only adopt, but essentially offer, microservices or narrow cloud APIs? How do the trends of microservices, containers, devops, cloud, as-a-service/ on-demand, serverless — all moves towards more and more ephemerality — change the future of computing and even work? Cockcroft (who is now a technology fellow at Battery Ventures) joins this episode of the a16z Podcast, in conversation with Frank Chen and Martin Casado (and Sonal Chokshi) to discuss these shifts and more.
