Microservices are hard to build and deploy and the industry is filled with failures scaling this distributed architecture. Oracle has released a new backend platform for Spring Boot that deploys (cloud or on-premises) with Kubernetes, and frees the developer to focus on app development and using the right APIs. The converged features of the Oracle Database fit modern microservices perfectly.
The backend platform is based on Kubernetes managing app containers, and platform containers provisioned for security with vault, service discovery, workflow engine, CLI, and many other features. The app containers deploy Spring apps with access to the Oracle Database. The data-centric and event-driven microservices are a natural fit for this backend platform.
