  • Article Series - .NET Core - 2nd Series

    In this series, we explore some of the benefits .NET Core and how it can help traditional .NET developers and all technologists who need to bring robust, performant and economical solutions to market

  • Book Review: Optimizing Java

    InfoQ reviewed the book Optimizing Java, a comprehensive in-depth look at performance tuning in the Java programming language written by Java industry experts, Ben Evans, James Gough and Chris Newland. InfoQ spoke to the authors for more insights on their experiences, learnings and obstacles in authoring this book.

  • Spark Application Performance Monitoring Using Uber JVM Profiler, InfluxDB and Grafana

    In this article, author Amit Baghel discusses how to monitor the performance of Apache Spark based applications using technologies like Uber JVM Profiler, InfluxDB database and Grafana data visualization tool.

  • Microservices in a Post-Kubernetes Era

    The microservice architecture is still the most popular architectural style for distributed systems. But Kubernetes and the cloud native movement have redefined certain aspects of application design and development at scale. Modern developers must be fluent in a programming language to implement the business functionality, and equally fluent in cloud native technologies.

  • Istio and the Future of Service Meshes

    A service mesh provides a transparent and language-independent way to flexibly and easily automate networking, security, and observation functions. This article examines the past, present and future of the Istio service mesh. The near-term goal is to launch Istio to 1.0, when the key features will all be in beta, including support for Hybrid environments.

  • Picking an Active-Active Geo Distribution Strategy: Comparing Merge Replication and CRDT

    Modern distributed applications are fuelling the growing demand for distributed active-active, multi-master databases. While most popular databases support multi-master deployment, different databases employ different techniques. LWW, MVCC, merge replication and CRDTs deliver eventual consistency, offering read and write access with local latency and remaining available during network partitions.

  • Microservices and the Economics of Small Things

    In this article Mark Burgess explores the process of "decentralizing intent" and the effect it has on the predictability of our systems including what we can know as we scale systems.

  • Article Series: .NET Core

    In this series, we explore some of the benefits .NET Core and how it can help not only traditional .NET developers, but all technologists that need to bring robust, performant and economical solutions to market.

  • A Comparison between Rust and Erlang

    This article will focus on a comparison between Erlang and Rust, detailing their similarities and differences. It may be interesting to both Erlang developers looking into Rust and Rust developers looking into Erlang. A final section will detail more about each of the language capabilities and shortcomings and argue for the possibility of leveraging both languages' strengths in the same project.

  • FPGAs Supercharge Computational Performance

    Originally used in the development of new hardware, new, cloud-based FPGAs are making the technology more accessible. The dramatic improvements in speed and lower costs over traditional CPUs means more companies can start benefiting from the technology. FPGAs are fundamentally concurrent, which makes them an ideal tool for data-intensive, parallel processing problems.

  • Practical Monitoring: Book Review and Q&A with Mike Julian

    Mike Julian has recently published Practical Monitoring with O’Reilly, which aims to provide readers with a foundational introduction to the topic of monitoring, as well as practical guidelines on how to monitor service-based applications and cloud infrastrastructure. InfoQ recently sat down with Julian and discussed the topic of monitoring.

  • The Java Evolution of Eclipse Collections

    With each successive version of Java, frameworks must adapt and transform in order to stay current. This article aims to describe some of the new Java 8 features in Eclipse Collections, a high performance collections framework for Java, and looks ahead at some of the new things we’ve done to prepare for Java 9. This article will walk through these new features and changes.
