In recent years, application development has started to focus on a new concept: containers. No, these aren’t shipping containers, however, most people working in a tech field have heard the term ‘container’ come up in some technical design meeting or discussing ‘the future of technology.’ It has quickly become a buzzword and an important concept, but what actually is a container? What is all the excitement about? Why should we care?
Check out our YouTube video: Container fundamentals, security and usage in the enterprise.

Nowadays, the reality of companies demands even more integration between different technologies, working together, changing, and processing data. In this ecosystem, the use of an integration platform is essential. Still, the use of an in-memory database is necessary for a significant gain in information processing performance. In this article, we will demonstrate the use of the JBoss Fuse integration platform, in conjunction with the In-memory database named Red Hat Data Grid.

Traditionally there have been very clear battle lines drawn for application and infrastructure deployment. When you need to run a Virtual Machine, you run it on your virtualization platform (Openstack, VMWare, etc.) and when you need to run a container workload, you run it on your container platform (Kubernetes). But when you’re deploying your application, do you really care where it runs? Or do you just care that it runs somewhere?
This is where I entered this discussion and I quickly realized that in most cases, I really didn’t care. What I knew was that I needed to have the things I required to build my application or run my training. I also knew that if I could avoid having to manage multiple sets of automation — that would be an even bigger benefit. So if I could have both running within a single platform, I was absolutely on board to give it a shot.

In the previous part of the series, we explored Open Policy Agent and implemented an ACL-based access control for our application. In this entry, I am going to share with you some of the discoveries that I made while evaluating Open Policy Agent in regards to policy design and development.
