Standing on the Shoulders of Giants

Supercharging Your Microservices With NetflixOSS and Spring Cloud


We’re now in a period of unprecedented openness and collaboration among technical colleagues. Instead of building systems made up of proprietary technology and closely-guarded local knowledge, companies are constructing modern microservices with the help of open source software and patterns evangelized by forward-thinking members of the community. This sharing of assets helps developers build more reliable software, faster. And almost no one shares their software assets quite like Netflix.

In this free white paper, we’ll take a look at the architectural challenges Netflix faced, what they’ve released as open source software, why this software matters to you, and how Pivotal makes it easy to consume Netflix software as part of Spring Cloud.

This white paper discusses:

  • The opportunities and challenges of microservices
  • Challenges with a microservices architecture
  • A catalogue of NetflixOSS
  • How to consume Spring Cloud Netflix
  • Where to run apps powered by Spring Cloud Netflix
