Microservices: Better Scalability and Faster Deployments, but not Universally Good for all Apps

By Dick Weisinger

Traditionally applications have been developed as monoliths. The code is a single code base running on a single server. But as the code base grows, apps designed as monoliths typically become difficult to maintain and develop new features for. Microservices

Microservices: Provides Benefits of Resiliency and Incremental Upgradability

By Dick Weisinger

Globally, the microservices market is estimated to grow 24 percent over the next five years by Report Consultant. Microservices is the building of applications and larger services from many loosely coupled services that serve as data and computing resources for

Microservices: Huge Potential, but getting it Right Requires Discipline, Organization and Maturity

By Dick Weisinger

Microservices is a type of software architecture that decomposes applications and projects into independent modules that perform well-defined and discrete tasks.  Microservices are self-contained and are accessed via a well-defined API interface. Promoters of microservices note that scalability and granularity

Microservices: Streamlining Development by Breaking up Monolithic Applications

By Dick Weisinger

Microsoervices is an architectural style that builds applications from a collection of loosely coupled services. The protocols used are lightweight and the services are very fine grained.  Each service stands on its own, and as such, makes development, testing, and

Microservices: Greater Agility and Flexibility at the Cost of Greater Complexity

By Dick Weisinger

SOA – Services Oriented Architecture — has been around for some time.  And recently, it is coming back strong, but with a new name: Microservices and Containers.  The idea is that rather than create monolithic applications, create applications by bundling
