Bleeding-edge deployment with Rudr and Dapr   

Barely a year old, both Dapr and Rudr are changing the way developers build and deploy cloud native applications on Kubernetes.  So, what is Raincode’s approach to Kubernetes deployment with Rudr and Dapr?

Automated container generation and OAM

Docker images are automatically generated by Raincode compilers and pushed to the container registry. Open Application Management (OAM) manifests can then be created within the CI/CD pipeline and be published to Kubernetes clusters which get translated by Rudr into Kubernetes deployments. The Kubernetes cluster then does whatever is necessary to reach the target state i.e. fetching images from the container registry, starting, stopping, upgrading, and scaling containers.

Dapr integration

Raincode integrates Dapr, a portable, event-driven, serverless runtime, into each running container to facilitate interoperability between containers and the integration of legacy and modern applications.

For example, a developer could write a microservice in Node.js which calls a legacy application in CICS through Dapr. Raincode’s Cloud Native solution integrates flawlessly with the Dapr runtime, allowing your containerized legacy applications to benefit from Dapr’s advanced features such as distributed tracing between services.

Finally, these containerized mainframe applications and their components can be conveniently accessed by external client applications and/or enterprise schedulers.

Unleash your batch in Kubernetes

For the last 20 years, we’ve been helping mainframe-based organizations modernize their legacy systems and stay ahead of the digital transformation curve.

The fastest and easiest way to reduce mainframe OpEx is to execute your batch processes in the cloud!
