With Azure Container Apps you can deploy your containerized apps without the need to take on the overhead of managing the infrastructure of the underlying systems. This service is still in preview, but provides you with the ability to use your preferred language or framework to build microservices with support for Distributed Application Runtime (Dapr). There's also scaling of your containers with Kubernetes Event-Driven Autoscaling (KEDA).

    Deploy infinitely scalable serverless apps, apis, and sites in seconds to AWS.

    Project mention: Ask HN: Does anyone else find the AWS Lambda developer experience poor? | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-04-18

    I can also recommend serverless.com framework for local development and running lambdas offline.

    AWS provides a docker image for emulating DynamoDB which works great for local dev and will commonly be paired with lambdas.

    Another option I have used recently for implementing node web services is https://github.com/apex/up which also has a nice local dev experience.

  • gobreaker

    Circuit Breaker implemented in Go

    Project mention: how to use a circuit breaker on Kubernetes | reddit.com/r/kubernetes | 2021-11-26

    As far as I know most circuit breakers are not a stand alone process, but either part of a service mesh like istio https://istio.io/latest/docs/tasks/traffic-management/circuit-breaking/ or part of the service. Spring for example has an abstraction called Spring Cloud Circuit breaker https://spring.io/projects/spring-cloud-circuitbreaker . There are several implementations in Go, e.g. https://github.com/sony/gobreaker or https://github.com/mercari/go-circuitbreaker

    A really valid solution is using ergo (https://github.com/ergo-services/ergo) you can basically create an OTP node in Go and then connect to it the same way you would with any other elixir node

  • OPS

    ops - build and run nanos unikernels

    Project mention: Nanos: A kernel designed to run one and only one application | news.ycombinator.com | 2021-12-03

    You an also build from source here: https://github.com/nanovms/nanos && https://github.com/nanovms/ops .

    There are also packages available through AUR/homebrew and the like: https://ops.city/downloads .

    The script is only there facilitate the 'install' such as ensuring you have qemu installed locally or assessing whether you have kvm/hvf rights/etc.

    Also, I don't think this is documented yet but you can target various PRs/builds with ops via this way:

    ops run /bin/ls --nanos-version d632de2
