What is Data Serialization? Data serialization refers to the process of translating data structures or object state into a different format capable of being stored (such as a memory buffer or file), or transmitted and reconstructed at a different point.
Palo Alto-based startup Macrometa has recently emerged from stealth mode. They have introduced an innovative serverless edge platform that is powered by a highly-consistent and highly-available geo-distributed database. The service is available across 25 PoPs (expanding to over 100 in
The Context There is a widespread belief that Kubernetes isn’t ready for stateful applications like MySQL and MongoDB. It has even been asked if running stateful applications in Kubernetes is worth the risk, but developer Kris Nova from Heptio asks
DevOps culture and process depends upon monitoring applications and application servers. You need to be able to continuously monitor your applications and servers in order to track application exceptions, memory usage, server CPU and/or spikes in storage. You also want
Service discovery is about locating the network location of a service provider. Developer Jason Xu likens it to changing your phone number without telling your friend, then losing contact. The same thing applies to services within a microservices architecture program.
The Context Before we focus on distributed tracing, let’s pull back to look at microservices as a whole. For greenfield applications, microservices have become a default choice. They offer the kind of decoupling necessary to allow developers to fully transform
Serverless computing, or FaaS (Functions-as-a-Service) is a form of cloud compute in which application developers depend on third party services to manage the server-side of operations, allowing them to focus on building applications on a function-by-function basis. The serverless platform
WebAssembly, the low-level assembly-esque language and compile target, arrived at cross-browser consensus earlier this year. It is now available in the latest Beta version of Samsung Internet (v22.214.171.124). Industry pundits are hailing the new code for its speed and ability
Protocol buffers, also known as Protobuf, is a protocol that Google developed internally to enable serialization and deserialization of structured data between different services. Google’s design goal was to create a better method than XML to make systems communicate with
Continuous delivery (CD) platforms help DevOps teams manage software releases in short cycles, ensuring they are delivered safely, reliably and quickly. The goal is to reduce the costs, time and associated risks connected to building, testing and delivering changes by
Stateful vs. Stateless – An Overview The key difference between stateful and stateless applications is that stateless applications don’t “store” data whereas stateful applications require backing storage. Stateful applications like the Cassandra, MongoDB and mySQL databases all require some type
