Challenges of Microservices Architectures

Move aside, big data. Sorry, devops. Cloud computing? You’re yesterday’s news. Today, the buzziest buzzword du jour is microservices.

In some ways, microservices architecture is “SOA done right” – but there’s more to it, as we now have the principles of cloud architecture (in particular, elasticity and automated recovery from failure) as well as another hot new buzzword, containers.

To understand microservices architecture, therefore, we need to do more than brush off our old SOA books. We’re not simply repeating history, hoping to get it right this time. In fact, we’re actually moving forward into new territory, as we finally hammer out how all these new buzzworthy trends actually fit together.
