Practical Microservice Architecture and Implementation Considerations

Much has been written about microservice architecture as seen in blogs here ( and here ( This is a promising approach to deal with large scale integration of software so that it is easily maintainable, high performing, and scalable. Although the approach has some concrete foundation, there are some serious practical considerations that involve scalability and performance that one must take into account in order to ensure good SLAs. Anyone who has tuned high-end platforms understands that this approach is not straightforward.

Consider the industry over the last 15 years as I briefly review emerging software engineering trends that are important to give context to the move toward microservices. Today, microservices and functional programming trends are prominent in many software development discussions, where these concepts of software engineering patterns were born out of empirical findings and limitations of object oriented programming (OOP) and service oriented architectures (SOA).
