Making the Move from Monolithic Architectures to Microservices

This eBook offers a step-by-step guide covering the technical details around a monolith to microservices migration — including decomposing monolithic architecture, testing and deploying services, coordinating dependencies, and decentralizing data covers. Plus, learn about common mistakes to avoid in your migration.

Monolith to Microservices Migration

A microservices approach to application design has become the dominant choice for organizations looking to realize benefits over more traditional, monolithic application architectures. The promise of a microservices architecture is certainly appealing, but some questions should be asked and tackled before the transition from monolith to microservices.

In this eBook, we discuss:

  • Questions to ask before blowing up a monolith
  • How to move from a monolithic application architecture to a microservices-based architecture
  • The pros and cons of microservices and monolithic architecture
  • Technical considerations including microservices communications techniques and scenarios, including testing and transition strategies
  • Common mistakes to avoid and best practices for the process
  • The role containers and service mesh play in microservices architecture
