We recently published a new tutorial walking you through creating infrastructure for a IBM Cloud Virtual Private Cloud (VPC)-based microservice architecture.

Each IBM Cloud VPC is managed by a separate team isolated by Identity and Access Management (IAM). VPCs are connected to each other using the IBM Cloud Transit Gateway, and shared microservices are accessed through host names registered in the IBM Cloud DNS Services. A Load Balancer is used to scale out one of the shared microservices.

Check out the new tutorial.

The tutorial guides you through the following steps:

  • Create the IAM resource required to isolate the DevOps teams 
  • Create the VPC and DNS resources (network team)
  • Create the shared microservice (shared team)
  • Create the public-facing application microservice (application1 team)
  • Create the Transit Gateway connecting the VPCs (network team)
  • Insert a Load Balancer and replace the DNS record (shared team)

The details are captured in Terraform configurations for each team found in this GitHub repository.

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
