The 13 Factor App: Building and Releasing for Cloud Native
The “12 Factor App” has been the backbone of cloud native applications on hyper-scale platforms for a long time. As with any technical concept, over time they require updates or amendments to remain relevant. We humbly recommend that it’s time to add a 13th factor; health checks. Health checks used to be the expertise of operations teams setting up load balancers and monitoring. However, with the move to continuous delivery and the need to scale microservices, the idea of health checks is increasingly moving into the application development sphere.
Modern platforms like Mesos and Marathon have simplified that process for development and operations teams.
