Microservices Ecosystem Transit Map


Microservices architecture has reached a tipping point where its broad adoption is now pretty much guaranteed. According to a survey by NGINX, nearly a third of companies have deployed microservices in production, and another third are either using microservices in development or considering them.

However, developing microservices is not always easy, and not necessarily a panacea or silver bullet versus monolithic architectures. While limiting the function of a program to a specific task may reduce the absolute lines of code, it may introduce other challenges related to testing, team coordination, and distributed computing complexity.
