Moving your data is one of the trickiest parts of a cloud migration. During the migration, the location of your data can have a significant impact on the performance of your application. If you don’t migrate the data at the same time you migrate the services using the data, you risk needing to access your […]
The following is a list of articles that Lee Atchison has published in industry publications such as Diginomica, Network Computing, IT Brief, Computing, Programmable Web, CIO Review, and DZone.
When building a modern, high-performant application at scale, it’s important to make sure the individual application instances are distributed across a variety of data centers in such a way that if any given data center goes offline, the application can continue to function relatively normally. This is an industry-wide best practice, and an important characteristic […]
It’s simple, really — services call other services and they take actions based on the responses from those services. Sometimes, that action is a success, sometimes it’s a failure. But whether it is a success or a failure depends on if the interaction meets certain requirements. In particular, the response must be predictable, understandable and reasonable for the given situation. This is important so that the service reading the response can make appropriate decisions and not propagate garbage results. When a service gets a response it does not understand, it can take actions based on the garbage response and those actions can have dangerous side effects to your service and your application.
Continuing in the same manner, I added a third article to my series of articles on serverless computing that was published this summer in ComputerWorld. Here is a summary:
Today’s digital savvy customers demand high quality software and websites, and they assume vendors will keep them updated with new features and capabilities. But keeping your customers engaged and satisfied requires agile application development processes and techniques, not to mention software engineers with the skills to leverage the latest development tools, technologies, and methodologies. As a […]
I’m proud to make this list of Cloud Computing Leaders to Follow Online: New Relic’s Cloud Computing Leaders to Follow Online.
The global serverless architecture market shows no signs of slowing down with multiple vendors offering their services in a fast-growing arena. AWS, Microsoft, Google, Alibaba, Rackspace, IBM, Oracle, and CA Technologies are just a few industry names investing heavily in the serverless space. It’s no wonder that vendors are scrambling for a big slice of […]
Serverless is a hotly discussed topic right now, and it seems to mean different things to different people. We caught up with Lee Atchison, Senior Director, Cloud Architecture at New Relic to discuss what serverless means to him, how it’s changing the way applications are developed and what implications serverless could have for infrastructure in the future. Catch the full interview on jaxenter.
I’ve published two articles in ComputerWorld this month, both on the topic of serverless.
As more and more companies embark on their digital transformation journey, organisations need to upgrade and evolve their infrastructure technology to maintain a competitive edge. The promise of serverless is to allow organisations to focus on their application and not worry about infrastructure, which includes buying, scaling, and securing infrastructure to run their applications. As […]
