Microservices Platform Migration Workshop : 2-4 hr

Grid Dynamics Holdings, Inc.

Learn about the importance of Microservices Platform and our best practices and solutions to get you started or improve existing architecture in Azure with our free workshop.

The Grid Dynamics team accumulated a lot of experience building cloud presence for its customers and distilled that knowledge into a blueprint for a microservices platform.

The platform is an Azure-native reference implementation of the blueprint which addresses the majority of questions arising when companies encounter the world of cloud and microservices for the first time. The platform is capable of hosting various workloads when deployed, without spending time on the “plumbing” work usually associated with the beginning of a cloud journey. This allows companies to focus on their business domain logic and enables quick onboarding of “clean slate” implementations as well as easy migration of existing technical solutions from other cloud and on-premise systems to Azure.

The reference microservices platform supports multi-tenancy and high availability / disaster recovery scenarios and can be scaled on-demand. It leverages the IaaC approach, which helps with reducing operational costs and provides unified infrastructure for all stages of development. It provides pre-packaged yet modular and flexible ways to reduce onboarding time to the Azure cloud infrastructure for new projects from weeks to days or even hours, incorporating best practices from both Microsoft and Grid Dynamics. It can also provide a clear and easy path for modernization and future-proofing of existing workloads, making sure they are up to top industry standards.

The workshop will cover the basic concepts of what a microservices platform is and why it’s needed, as well as architecture for the reference implementation and various components of the platform, the ideas of modularity and possibilities of customizations, followed by open discussion focusing on the Customer’s specific requirements and how the solution can be integrated into an existing technical roadmap.

Workshop agenda: Introductions Basic ideas and importance of robust and modern microservices platform How to address most commonly asked questions when building cloud presence in Azure Leveraging the best practices and technologies offered by Azure cloud Deep dive into current areas of concern for Customer and drafting the resolution plan Closure and discussion of next steps.
