Schedule data backups automatically on IBM Cloud

This tutorial demonstrates how to use the Workload Scheduler service on
the IBM Cloud platform to automatically schedule process execution for your
IBM Cloud applications. It uses a common example performing a daily
database backup to walk you through the process of creating a RESTful
PHP service that can be invoked to back up the database. It also demonstrates
how to integrate third-party services such as Dropbox and SendGrid to store
backup files and send status notifications.

The benefits of lightweight integration, Part 1: The fate of the ESB

While many large enterprises successfully use the enterprise service bus
(ESB) pattern, the term is often disparaged in the cloud-native space, and
especially in relation to microservices architecture. It is seen as
heavyweight and lacking in agility. What has happened to make the ESB pattern
appear so outdated, and what should we use in its place? What would
lightweight integration look like?

The benefits of lightweight integration, Part 2: Moving to lightweight integration

Microservices principles are revolutionizing the way applications are
built by enabling a more decoupled and decentralized approach to
implementation, which leads to greater agility, scalability, and resilience.
These applications still need to be connected to one another and to existing
systems of record. It clearly makes sense to use microservice techniques in
the integration space, too. Lightweight integration provides the benefits of
cloud-ready containerization to integration architecture, and provides the
opportunity to escape from the heavily centralized ESB pattern to more
empowered and autonomous application teams.
