Understanding Tungsten Fabric microservices architecture



What is Tungsten Fabric microservices architecture?

Employing microservices provides a number of benefits which includes:

  • Deploying patches without updating the entire TF deployment.

  • Better ways to manage the lifecycles of containers.

  • Improved user experiences with TF provisioning and upgrading.

  • Provisioning with minimum information provided.

  • Configuring every feature.

  • Simplify application complexity by implementing small, independent processes.

The containers and their processes are grouped as services and microservices, and are similar to pods in the Kubernetes open-source software used to manage containers on a server cluster.

Figure 1 shows how the TF containers and microservices are grouped into a pod structure upon installation.
