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.

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.

Microservice Architecture Without Microservice Overhead

James Shore

This week, we’re looking at microservice architecture. Microservice architecture is a great way to partition code so that teams can work independently. But microservice architecture comes at a high cost.

Microservices Adoption in 2020

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. Here’s a summary of our key findings: Most adopters are successful with microservices. Microservices practices are surprisingly mature. Adopters are betting big on microservices. Success with microservices means owning the software lifecycle.

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.

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.

Should I use microservices?

O'Reilly Software

Considerations for when—and when not—to apply microservices in your organization. Despite the drive in some quarters to make microservice architectures the default approach for software, I feel that due to their numerous challenges, adopting them still requires careful thought. You need to assess your problem space, your skills, technology landscape, and understand what you are trying to achieve before deciding if microservices are right for you.
