Why the increasing interest in Microservices?

Introduction to Microservices

Microservices are currently getting a lot of attention: articles, blogs, discussions on social media, and conference presentations. They are rapidly heading towards the peak of inflated expectations on the Gartner Hype cycle. At the same time, there are skeptics in the software community who dismiss microservices as nothing new. Naysayers claim that the idea is just a rebranding of SOA. However, despite both the hype and the skepticism, the Microservice architecture pattern has significant benefits – especially when it comes to enabling the agile development and delivery of complex enterprise applications.

This blog post is the first in a 7-part series about designing, building, and deploying microservices. You will learn about the approach and how it compares to the more traditional Monolithic architecture pattern. This series will describe the various elements of the Microservice architecture. You will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of the Microservice architecture pattern, whether it makes sense for your project, and how to apply it.
