(CLOUD 2020) Abstracting Containerisation and Orchestration for Cloud-Native Applications

About This Webinar

Abstract: Developing cloud-native applications demands a radical shift from the way we design and build traditional applications. Application designers usually divide their business logic into several business functions, each developed according to a microservices architectural style and packaged in containers. Throughout the stages of cloud-native application development (development, testing, staging and production), container orchestration helps coordinate the execution environment. Thanks to the increasing popularity of cloud-native applications, there has been a growing interest in container and orchestration technologies recently. However, despite their closeness, these two inter-related technologies are supported by different toolsets and specification formalisms, with minimal portability between them and usually a disregard for the best practices. This paper presents velo, a domain-specific language (DSL) that unifies containerisation and orchestration concepts. velo has two components: (1) a specification language that supports an abstract description of containerisation and orchestration for a complex application; and (2) a transpiler, a source-to-source compiler into concrete container manifest and orchestration description.
