It is no secret that our world is changing. This article will explore how using a combination of Knative, the Kubernetes-native serverless platform, and Quarkus, Red Hat’s container-native approach to Java, can be used together to help simplify the modernization of application delivery.

It may finally be safe to say that serverless is moving beyond being simply a buzzword and is becoming a key part of overall business strategy. It is rising in both popularity and business use cases, with companies increasingly recognizing the importance of having a solid serverless plan in place as part of their overall cloud strategy. However, despite the increase in use, serverless architectures and technologies are still seen as requiring a big shift in the way applications are built and deployed, and are often still tied to digital transformation projects. Many companies may not realize that there continues to be a big opportunity to be able to modernize and migrate legacy applications by running them in serverless containers, with no major change in the current development and deployment environment. This article will explore how using a combination of  Knative, the Kubernetes-native serverless platform, and  Quarkus, Red Hat’s container-native approach to Java, can be used together to help simplify the modernization of application delivery.

The importance of app modernization

It is no secret that our world is changing. With the ongoing shift to digital-first, accelerated by the COVID-19 pandemic, it is clear that companies’ backend technologies need to keep pace. All customer transactions are being done digitally, across every industry. From both a competitive and customer experience perspective, things have to be running seamlessly. Modern, cloud-native and container-first technologies, such as serverless and Quarkus can help deliver software faster and without interruption. It’s true that app modernization is not a new IT priority, but it is more widely understood now that there is no wiggle room in performance. Companies may also be focused on AI/ML and automation, and having a hybrid cloud approach can make it0 easier to adopt these capabilities into their organizations. By leveraging the tools already in place, there is no need to hire new or additional tech talent.
