Automate Microservice to API by using Kubernetes Operator Pattern
The recent constraints on businesses have pushed organizations to accelerate their plans for moving operations to the digital world—often shrinking timelines from years to months. Microservice architecture (MSA) is critical to accomplish fast innovation and the APIs exposed from microservices should be secured, managed, observed and monetized. All these steps require significant time.
Kubernetes is designed for automation. The Operator pattern captures how you can write code and extend the Kubernetes cluster to automate a task going beyond its out-of-the-box capabilities. In this session, Lakmal will demonstrate and share his experience of how to automate microservice to API by introducing a Kubernetes Operator that works together with an API Management system while enhancing the developer experience.
