IT professionals and business leaders with an interest in cloud services have probably heard the term 'microservices', quite possibly in discussions about service-oriented architecture (SOA). There are good reasons why these evolving cloud technologies are popular: Both can make an organization and its cloud-hosted applications more agile, less likely to suffer outages, faster to update, and eliminate other problems associated with monolithic architecture and software. … [Read more...] about SOA versus microservices: How are they different?

Adopting microservices as part of your technology stack Businesses of all sizes should consider using microservices rather than custom code when available. In fact, microservices have leveled the technology playing field to a large extent. Small businesses were once at a severe disadvantage to the 'big guys' that could afford large data centers and the staff to run them. Now, organizations of 1 or 100,000 people can access the same Amazon and Google APIs and leverage the assets of these tech giants. For smaller businesses, microservices can serve as a 'force multiplier' in that they allow you to quickly build complex applications by using services that someone else builds and maintains. Thousands of startups have even combined existing services creatively, or built services to fill a specific niche, and turned them into a business. … [Read more...] about Microservices 101: A guide to microservice architecture

The key to designing microservices is to properly "defin[e] their boundaries and how they communicate," according to Marko Anastasov. "A loosely coupled service contains related behavior in one place and knows as little as possible about the rest of the system with which it collaborates." Anastasov's emphasis on "loose coupling" is critical. You want services to communicate asynchronously with a limited number of endpoints and no shared database. … [Read more...] about How to avoid turning microservices into distributed spaghetti code
