How to break a Monolith into Microservices

Martin Fowler

As monolithic systems become too large to deal with, many enterprises are drawn to breaking them down into the microservices architectural style. It is a worthwhile journey, but not an easy one.

Kubernetes and Microservices

Linux Academy

Microservices are a great way to architect your applications. Today, however, more and more people are designing their applications using a series of many relatively independent and decoupled services, known as microservices. Why Microservices? A microservice architecture comes with a host of benefits. Another benefit of microservices is that they allow individual application components to be separately scaled.

Scaling Microservices with Kubernetes

Linux Academy

With microservice architecture, the application is broken down into separate pieces —microservices— that update and deploy independently. This microservice approach provides freedom and flexibility for the programming language used as well as the tools and frameworks that are implemented to administer the application. In the remainder of this post, we will walk through the process of scaling microservices in Kubernetes using both manual and automatic scaling.

Missing the point about microservices – it's about testing and deploying independently

Erik Bernhardsson

Ok, so I have to first preface this whole blog post by a few things: I really struggle with the term microservices. So basically since 2006 I’ve been continuously working in what people now call a “microservice architecture”. 98% of microservice benefit is being able to test and deploy independently. If you end up with a microservice that can’t be tested in isolation, you’re doing things wrong. Some questionable reasons to consider microservices.
