Open Application Model Specification
Open Application Model is a specification for building cloud native applications.
Focused on separating concerns of development and operation needs, Open Application Model brings modular, extensible, and portable design to building and delivering applications on platforms like Kubernetes.
This repository is unstable, and open to contributions. The specification is under development, and breaking changes could be made. Interested in contributing? Take a look at the issue queue! We're looking for more great ideas on how to model cloud native applications.
When it comes to application development and deployment, we think it is important to distinguish between the parts that developers are responsible for, and the parts that operations is responsible for. Otherwise, if these roles get muddled, it would result in communications mishaps, bugs, or even service outages.
Open Application Model attempts to solve this problem by modeling the application according to the roles responsible for building and running apps and operating infrastructure.
- Developers are responsible for describing what a microservice or component does, and how it can be configured. They are the domain experts on the code.
- Application Operators are responsible for configuring the runtime aspects of one or more of these microservices. They are the domain experts on the platform.
- Infrastructure Operators are responsible for setting up and maintaining the infrastructure within which applications run. They are the domain experts on the low-level details.
