Leveraging Virtual Services in Your Microservice Architecture: Reduce Complexity and Eliminate Downtime with Service Virtualization
According to the State of API 2019 Report, adoption of microservices is seen as the number one contributor to API growth in the next two years. As teams make this transition into a microservice architecture, the resulting number and complexity of services becomes a major challenge to solve.
To support these complex environments, service virtualization can be a powerful resource for enabling parallel development across large organizations. A virtual asset can expose upcoming changes before they are implemented, or eliminate an external or legacy dependency that may be unstable. If it isn't introduced in the right way, it can also add an unnecessary layer of complexity instead of enabling teams to build better software in a fraction of the time.
In this session, we will look at how teams can utilize a service virtualization tool, like ServiceV Pro, in conjunction with an API gateway service to bridge the gaps between virtual and actual services, as well as simplify the client experience of working with them.
