Visualizing and tracking your microservices

There is no question that microservices architectures are the current rage for software design. IT professionals and developers I speak to are migrating to this pattern pretty consistently. Meeting dozens of prospects and customers in the last ten weeks at AppDynamics, I’ve asked this question regularly— are you using or thinking about moving to microservices? — and most often the answer is “yes.” I typically follow this up with a question on the use of container technology (such as Docker), and the answer is “maybe.” I would suspect as containers mature and become cross-platform, that the answer will likely change.

I’m not going to explain the basics of microservices, as that’s that’s handled elsewhere. The pattern of using APIs, initially built to cross application boundaries within a single enterprise or organization, is now being leveraged within a single application architecture to deliver functionality. Microservices adoption is being driven by two forces: the need for agility and speed; and the re-composing of applications enabling experimentation and demands to support new delivery platforms such as web, mobile web, native apps, and partners. Defining these boundaries allows independent development of micoservices.
