While the cloud has overcome several limitations of the traditional infrastructure, other problems arise when deploying your microservices in environments that have the possibility to scale up and down dynamically based on workload. When deploying Camunda BPM, the first problem that you will encounter will be, most probably, session management.While this is easily solvable in traditional environments by using sticky sessions, the same solution does not apply when you deal with cloud environments like, Kubernetes. The reason is that sticky sessions do not behave well in dynamic environments since they expect the underlying infrastructure to be static. Recently we’ve been working...
