Modern deployment models put a new spin on componentization

Application componentization is an old concept, but fresh infrastructure trends like containers and serverless computing can offer more advantages to breaking software into composable pieces -- if developers understand the implications of these new deployment models. Combining componentization with cloud computing allows developers to build highly distributable and scalable applications. However, developers must ensure they understand how each deployment model works to evaluate whether it's right for their application. Containers provide a way to make applications portable and scalable, serverless computing offers a way to deal with events more efficiently, and microservices provide a technique for developers to build composable apps. The three models have differences and similarities, and developers need to understand each to utilize these new techniques effectively. All three platforms start with components, which are pieces of applications developers write and deploy independently, then stitch together with network ...
