Cloud-native technology has been changing the way payment services are architected. In 2020, I presented a series of insights from real implementations adopting open-source and cloud-native technology to modernize payment services. The series consisted of six articles and covered architectural diagrams from logical and schematic to detailed views of the various use cases uncovered.
The architectures presented were based on open-source cloud-native technologies, such as containers, microservices, and a Kubernetes-based container platform. The major omission in this series was to avoid discussing any aspect of cloud-native observability. This series will take a look at fixing that omission with an open-source standards-based cloud-native observability platform that helps DevOps teams control the speed, scale, and complexity of a cloud-native world for their financial payments architecture.
