4 Things I Like About Microservices

Henrik Warne

Microservices have gone through a complete hype cycle. Here are four features specific to microservices that I have come to appreciate. A typical microservice has its own database, and the microservice is only accessible via an API. However, microservices are not all bad.

6 Advantages of Microservices


Microservices have recently gained in popularity, but you may be unsure whether this architecture is right for your environment. What’s great is microservices are not necessarily a new beast, as the concepts behind them have been a solid part of software development for decades.

Why Boring Tech is Best to Avoid a Microservices Mess


Microservices are all the rage. A Forrester study found that 76% of enterprises were rearchitecting applications for microservices. At the same time, microservices are definitely not a silver bullet.

Five Microservices Worst Practices


Microservices are moving to the mainstream. The IDC FutureScape: Worldwide IT Industry 2019 Predictions states that by 2022, 90% of all new apps will feature microservices architecture that “improve the ability to design, debug, update and leverage third-party code.” With so many organizations adopting or about to adopt microservices, they must be doing something right. […]. The post Five Microservices Worst Practices appeared first on DevOps.com.

Microservices: The Dark Side

Speaker: Prem Chandrasekaran

A few years ago, Barclays embarked on a journey to migrate its legacy services to a modern tech stack with the objective of achieving a high level of scale, resilience, and reliability. During the incremental, iterative move towards an ecosystem of focused, distributed services, it’s fair to say that the company discovered the challenges of distributing objects. Join us for an episode you can’t miss if you’re finding it a lot harder to architect in practice than in theory, and learn how you can shed light on the dark side of microservices.

Microservices Adoption in 2020

O'Reilly Media - Ideas

Microservices seem to be everywhere. Scratch that: talk about microservices seems to be everywhere. So we wanted to determine to what extent, and how, O’Reilly subscribers are empirically using microservices. Microservices practices are surprisingly mature.

Microservice Architecture Without Microservice Overhead

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.

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. A Microservice Application in Kubernetes.

Fundamentals of testing microservices architecture


Disruptive changes have also taken place on the application front with the 3-tier architecture of the late 90s and subsequent 2 tier monolithic architecture giving way to one that is based on microservices. Increased adoption of digital has pushed the need for speed to the forefront.
