The Microservice Approach
Reusable Components & Loose Coupling
Classes and infrastructure that are written in ways that are not strongly coupled allow for re-usable components, and for easy extension. The Microservice Framework makes it possible for the developer of any class and infrastructure to plug and play. By the nature of being loose coupled, the application can easily adapt.
Automation & Continuous Delivery
From local development, to staging, to production, the ability to safely deploy a component is critical. This can be done on an artifact basis, rather than trying to verify the entire system. As with many things, automation is key, and this allows a microservice oriented architecture to achieve high agility with extensible configuration.
Managing Risk & Fault Tolerance
Perfect software is a result of engineering, not that of force by management. Reliability is compromised by large releases, building fault tolerant systems is about understanding and designing against single points of failure. To get the full benefit of this, an organizational philosophy that embraces agility and reliability must be adopted.
