All the large tech companies of today started out as small concepts operating from basements or other obscure locations. From Google to Netflix and Amazon, when it was time to break the chains of their monolithic architectures, they turned to microservices. This infographic explores the WHAT, WHO, and WHY of microservices and how organizations can transition from monolithic applications to scale their platforms to the next level.


Solving Big Problems with Micro solutions

Microservices – Who, What, & Why

Microservices are independent processes that interact with other small processes and together, shape applications. A service discovery is a key element of service-oriented architectures that uses network protocols to automatically detect devices and services
Microservices are an ideal choice for large enterprises, where independent teams are working to scale. It also offers benefits for organizations looking to optimize cloud platforms or expand services over a variety of new channels. Scalability during SaaS build and release is another good fit for microservice architecture.
Microservices enable organizations to be more agile and build more scalable applications. Breaking down a large application into smaller services makes the development workflow faster. Tasks can move more quickly and are more fluid.

Benefits of Microservices

Decreased Complexity

Because services are split into small manageable chunks, it becomes easy to maintain and refactor. Teams can easily integrate new technology or rewrite entire services if the need arises

Target Optimizations

Because services are decoupled it is easy to place each one in its own optimized container. This allows developers to never have to make trade-offs when it comes to optimization and scaling.

Resistant to Bugs

Bugs are contained to a single process. If a process crashes, the system can account for partial failure, making your application hard as nails against any system- wide crash.

Microservices Cloud-Native Approach

A cloud-native approach combines microservices architecture and container technologies.
Cloud platforms provide all the necessary tools to achieve greater scalability

Applications can now be Scaled UP or DOWN depending on the load throughout a day.
