Microservices aren't a one-size-fits-all solution, and it's important to recognize when a monolith is most fitting. Alexandra Noonan shared Segment's story of returning to the latter during last year's Summit.
Containers enable microservice architectures by making it easy to develop, package, and run microservices in an efficient, run-anywhere format. The mutually reinforcing trends of microservices and containerization have fueled the adoption of Kubernetes, which in turn drove the proliferation of a cloud-native tooling and the formation of the Cloud Native Computing Foundation.
In this presentation, Chris Richardson describes the essential characteristics of the microservice architecture. You will learn about the benefits and drawbacks of the microservice architecture and when it makes sense to use it. Chris also covers how the microservice architecture is not a silver bullet.
