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.

Microservices vs. Monoliths: Which is Right for Your Enterprise?

With microservices projected to grow globally at a 22.5% rate between 2019 and 2025, the choice between monolithic and microservices architectures needs to be carefully considered. If you are wondering what microservices are best suited for, or whether your business should stick to monolithic or switch to microservices, here are a few cardinal points to […].

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.

How to break a Monolith into Microservices

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.

The Purpose of Microservice Architecture

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.
