How to Create Microservices-based Applications for AWS

TIBCO Microservice-Based Applications
Reading Time: 2 minutes

Market demands are shifting rapidly, with many disruptive forces in motion. Businesses are reacting in a number of different ways to preserve cash, change the way they operate, and accelerate digital business initiatives to capture new value. Today’s disruptions are planting seeds for broad and permanent changes across all markets, so businesses need to act now in order to prepare for what’s to come in the near future. In order to combat these forces, a business needs to be agile so that it can rapidly adapt its operations as well as its products and services to meet the new market conditions. Either way, the business that is able to react quickly maintains resiliency and has a foundation for rapid growth and innovation

A key starting point for increasing business agility is the digital platform, as businesses are operating more with digital services than manual, rigid, paper-based processes. If you aren’t able to rapidly adapt the services and capabilities of your digital platform to stay aligned with the needs of the business, then your underlying application architecture needs to be evolved so that it becomes more agile. One way to build this agility is by evolving to a microservices architecture.

Microservices are very small units of executable code. The industry has long preached the benefits of breaking down large, monolithic applications into smaller units of execution. But technology has evolved in recent years so that now this strategy creates high performing apps. Microservices can be used to break up monoliths into individual, highly cohesive business services that are deployed in containers and serverless environments.  Thus, microservices can each be adapted, deployed, and scaled independently of other microservices. This gives the business a high degree of flexibility to adapt to the digital platform very quickly.   

TIBCO Cloud Integration makes it easy to develop and deploy your business logic in event-driven microservices and functions to AWS.  You can use pre-packaged connectors for AWS to connect to a wide variety of Amazon services to create application logic. The entire application architecture is highly efficient and cost-effective which will accelerate your adoption of AWS technologies.

TIBCO Cloud Integration simplifies the development and deployment of event-driven applications built with microservices and functions to AWS. Once apps are created, you can package your microservices into a Docker Image, and then deploy them into the AWS container management service of your choice including Amazon EKS, ECS, and Fargate for deployment to AWS, or other container management services. They also can be deployed seamlessly to AWS Lambda.

TIBCO’s extensive experience in intelligent connectivity, combined with  AWS’s highly flexible and scalability cloud platform makes for a natural partnership.  TIBCO is an AWS Advanced Technology Partner. We partner with AWS in both technology and business development initiatives.  We have many solutions that run natively on AWS, and that are also available for purchase through the AWS marketplace, not only for connectivity, but also for analytics and machine learning, and data management.

Microservices can each be adapted, deployed, and scaled independently of other microservices. This gives the business a high degree of flexibility to adapt to the digital platform very quickly.   Click To Tweet
