Rethink the monolith
What are Microservices?
The Microservices architectural style describes an approach to structuring systems as a collection of loosely-coupled services. The architectural style goes hand-in-hand with small, autonomous teams that develop, deploy, and scale their services independently.
An online survey of 500 software and IT professionals found that:
of teams report Microservices make it easier to test or deploy features.
Failures at the service level don't bring down the whole system and can be resolved more quickly, often with automation.
Faster builds and less risky deployments with smaller code bases. Services can be replaced by new versions or different services without needed to change or bring-down the whole system.
Infrastructure is the platform
Fewer and simpler platform layers simplifies development and operations. Technologies can be chosen based on the needs of the service or different skill-sets of the team.
Challenges of adopting Microservices
Project-centric budgeting often leads to separating building a service from running it, defeating rapid cycles of learning from real production data.
Few organizations get to start over with Microservices and have to live with both monolith and Microservices. The mix of architectures and associated tools can add considerable complexity.
Microservices are highly decentralized and while decentralization reduces some forms of complexity, it can make it hard to coordinate in the event of service degradation or a full-on outage.
