Microservices were meant to be a blessing, but for many, they’re a burden. Some developers have even moved away from them after negative experiences. Operational complexity becomes a headache for this distributed, granular software model in production. Is it possible to solve microservices’ problems while retaining their advantages?
Microservices shorten development cycles. Changing a monolithic code base is a complex affair that risks unexpected ramifications. It’s like unraveling a sweater so that you could change its design. Breaking that monolith down into lots of smaller services managed by two-pizza teams can make software easier to develop, update, and fix. It’s what helped Amazon grow from a small ecommerce outfit to the beast it is today.
