Martin Fowler’s website has a good article on microservices. Every time I hear the term microservices I think, “That’s what I was doing over ten years ago,” and his article confirms that. Of course the technology is better today, but what I/we were doing many years ago fits his definition very well. I was “fortunate” enough to work for a company that had 24x7x365 needs, and those needs naturally led to this sort of architecture.
