How to future-proof managed file transfer (MFT) in MuleSoft-based integrations

Think about what Netflix did and what Blockbuster didn’t. Similar to Blockbuster, Netflix started with physical distribution, mailing DVDs to their subscribers. Then, they took a leap of faith —moving into streaming and diverting focus from their primary business. It worked out well for them. Companies that do not innovate become obsolete and the costs of just “keeping the lights on” may have devastating effects on the business. Future-proofing IT investments is critical to keep the business agile so it can adapt to market changes.

MuleSoft provides two types of load balancers, shared load balancer, and dedicated load balancer to distribute API traffic deployed on the MuleSoft cloud workers. Shared load balancer is multi-tenant and shared with other customers. Dedicated load balancers enable you to deploy and configure one or more custom load balancers within your Anypoint Virtual Private Cloud (Anypoint VPC). The aim of load balancing is to optimize the use of API instances available, maximize throughput,

Everything you need to know about observability in Anypoint Platform

Observability is a comprehensive set of capabilities around logging, analytics, monitoring, troubleshooting, and measurement of a system. Here the term system is broadly used to indicate platform, runtimes, and applications. Observability plays a consequential role in providing the real-time pulse of a system. Lacking observability in a system would be similar to flying an aircraft without a fuel indicator.

How to write curried functions in DataWeave

One of the most valuable characteristics of DataWeave is that it is a functional programming language. This means it is dynamically able to solve problems with various approaches — one being currying, which is a common feature of functional programming languages like Haskel (from where it derives), and JavaScript. 

In this post, I’ll explain what currying is and how to write curried functions in DataWeave.

How to enable monitoring for application stability

For the last few decades, application and operational teams have been preaching loudly about monitoring and alerting capabilities to improve system resiliency. It is only with COVID-19, however, that these capabilities have shifted from “luxury” items to “absolutely necessary” capabilities to ensure business continuity.

As businesses take the next steps to refine their monitoring and alerting capabilities, it is critical that all stakeholders understand and utilize the same frameworks and metrics.
