Why Do You Always Choose Microservices Over Me? (Said the Monolithic Architecture) - DZone Microservices


What makes this simple architecture so special that it is being hyped so much? Is it worth the pain and effort to shift an entire running application from monolithic to microservices architecture? Many such questions came to our minds when we started using the microservices in our projects. In this blog, we will try to cover the answers to these questions and have a deeper look into the microservices architecture and compare it with the monolithic architecture.

The microservices value proposition


Examine the benefits of microservice architecture and techniques to achieve them. The microservice architectural style was defined based on common patterns observed across a number of pioneering organizations. These organizations did not consciously implement a microservice architecture. They evolved to it in pursuit of specific goals. In this chapter, we will explore the common benefits of microservice architecture and how they drive the higher-order goals from not available--speed, safety, and scale; illustrate how the goals of microservice architecture deliver business value; define a maturity model for microservice architecture benefits and goals; and finally, apply this information using a goal-oriented approach to microservice architecture.

Microservice Patterns - Programmer Books


Microservices Patterns teaches enterprise developers and architects how to build applications with the microservice architecture. Rather than simply advocating for the use the microservice architecture, this clearly-written guide takes a balanced, pragmatic approach, exploring both the benefits and drawbacks.

Learning Path: Microservices with Java, Scala, and Akka


Microservices are an architectural method and pattern for application development. Microservices are becoming hugely popular and are being adopted by many organizations because of the advantages that it offers. It is an approach to building asynchronous, non-blocking, and failure-resilient applications. Packt's Video Learning Paths are a series of individual video products put together in a logical and stepwise manner such that each video builds on the skills learned in the video before it. This Learning Path begins by showing you how to build smaller, lighter, and faster services that can be implemented easily in a Java production environment.

Microservice Architecture - Programmer Books


Microservices can have a positive impact on your enterprise--just ask Amazon and Netflix--but you can fall into many traps if you don't approach them in the right way. This practical guide covers the entire microservices landscape, including the principles, technologies, and methodologies of this unique, modular style of system building. You'll learn about the experiences of organizations around the globe that have successfully adopted microservices. In three parts, this book explains how these services work and what it means to build an application the Microservices Way. You'll explore a design-based approach to microservice architecture with guidance for implementing various elements.
