About the Ebook

More than 68% of organizations we surveyed are using or investigating microservices. A microservices approach offers a lot of potential for creating scalable applications but also introduces new challenges, one of the most difficult being interconnecting the microservices. In a standard monolith everything resides on the same server, but microservices can be spread across many servers and move frequently.

The Microservices Reference Architecture eBook is a practical guide to solving this and other challenges of building microservices‑based applications.
