Service Fabric


Modularity, Microservices and Containers

My colleague, Derek Baum, had an article published in Jaxenter last week called “Modularity, MicrJaxenter Feb 2016oservices and Containers“.

The article discusses how Microservices and Containers are examples of a general industry drive towards modularity. It goes on to demonstrate how OSGi’s Service-centric approach, its Requirements & Capabilities model, and the OSGi Remote Services specification provide an excellent solution for a containerised microservices solution.

Yes thats right, these concepts/technologies/trends aren’t competing with each other as many would have you believe. In fact they can all be complimentary when used with Paremus Packager.

Paremus Packager integrates the lifecycle of external (non-Java) applications with OSGi and provides a consistent means to start, stop, configure and inter-connect services and we will be making an early access release of the new Docker-based Paremus Packager available to a restricted audience in Q1 2016.  You can sign up for this online with just your email address.

The article is a is a follow up to the presentation of the same name given at the OSGi Community Event in 2015, by Neil Bartlett [ Slides / Video ] and these are a good source of info if you would like to learn more. Of course you can also add comments below if you have any questions.


“Innovation is GREAT” – Paremus in Japan

Innovation Is Great
The British Embassy in Tokyo has been running a series of activities under the theme of “Innovation is GREAT’“.

Last Wednesday, Dec 2 , they hosted an event at ITSCOM Studio & Hall (Futakotamagawa Rise) in Tokyo and Paremus were there showing demonstrations of the Service Fabric being used for IoT and Cloud.

Our booth was manned by our representative in Japan, Mr Takagi Kaname, and he enjoyed his time there meeting with a number of existing customers and forging new relationships with potential future partners.

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 (more…)
