Abstract

In the last two months, we started our journey towards a new microservices architecture. Among other things, we found that our existing CD tools were not ready to scale with new requirements. So we tried a new approach, defining our pipelines in code using LambdaCD. In combination with a Mesos cluster we can deploy new applications after a few minutes to see how they fit into our architecture by running tests against existing services.

In this part of my article I want to explain how we define microservices and why we think they are the best choice for our applications. Furthermore I will give you a brief introduction outlining which problems we have with common CI tools and how we want to solve them with LambdaCD.
