Developers are driving the market for cloud consumption and leading each industry into the new era of software defined disruption. There are no longer questions about elastic and flexible agile development as the way to innovate and reduce time to market for businesses. However, physical and cloud Infrastructure does not enable application development platforms natively nor provide the ability to create applications that are cloud native with elastic services. In addition, businesses are moving to application development architectures leveraging microservices, which are becoming more strategic to their business strategy. When making the decision to build and operate an application on physical or on a cloud platform, microservices became central to your application architecture and strategy.
This presentation will clearly define what a microservices infrastructure is and how it enables elastic, flexible, and portable application workload deployment. It introduces Cisco's cloud-based Shipped product that addresses these continuous evolving needs, and includes a demo of using Shipped to set up a development project and deploy it to the cloud in minutes, including creation of associated source repositories and continuous integration builds. Lastly it introduces DevNet (devnet.cisco.com), Cisco’s developer program, which provides resources to help you learn about and start using Shipped and other Cisco technologies to develop your own innovative applications quickly.
