Introducing the Paremus Service Fabric

This post is the first of a series of videos that will introduce and explore the capabilities of the Paremus Service Fabric; a distributed, highly modular, self-managing OSGi based platform.

This first episode demonstrates the creation of a Service Fabric in the Digital Ocean public Cloud environment. Having created a Service Fabric – we then review the Fabric’s management capabilities and deploy a simple example of a modular microservice based application.

This series will go onto explore various unique aspects of the Service Fabric, including the Fabric’s orchestration, management, adaption and recovery behaviours. The Fabric’s support for highly modular OSGi based applications, as well as supporting more traditional software artefacts via image deployment to Containers, will also be explored.

This and subsequent episodes are also available on the Paremus website.
