Build Always-On, Hyper-Scalable Microservice-based Cloud Services
Microservices is an approach to application development in which every part of the application is deployed as a fully self-contained component that can be individually scaled and updated. With a good microservice architecture, customers can solve the management, deployment, orchestration, and patching needs of a container-based service, with reduced risk of availability loss while maintaining high agility.
