On a mission to run as many open source serverless/FaaS frameworks. Looking for ease of use on a local development machine (no cloud). Starting with fnproject first.
Notes on getting Docker Swarm cluster running on two Raspberry Pi 3 devices. We will then deploy a simple nodejs app container on the new cluster.
Updated one of my previous Spring Boot sample service to run within a Docker container – https://github.com/thomasma/quote-service-docker. You can run it locally w/o Docker as a regular Spring Boot app and next run it inside a Docker container. Make sure that you have Docker setup correctly and tested prior to running this app.
It is hard not to be affected by the constant chatter on Microservices Architecture and Container technology. Both are leading the discussions nowadays and they combine to provide new ways to Architect distributed systems and provide agility in delivering business value. While they do bring in big benefits when implemented successfully, the path to success for most enterprises (other than startups/product/tech firms) is going to be difficult and having a level of measured caution would be good.
