Monolithic vs. Microservices Applications
April 17, 2015, 8:30am - 9:30am
Traditionally, the monolithic architectural style has dominated application development. This server-side approach method puts all of its functionality into a single process and scales by replicating the monolith on multiple servers. Issues arise, however, with scalability and as more applications are being deployed to the cloud, the monolithic style has given way to a new approach- a microservice architecture style- where services are independently deployed and scalable.
At the April Fridays @ the Corridor, we examine these two architectural styles and discuss the trend towards the microservices architecture style. Tom Wilson from Jack Russell Software and BoomTown's, Jason Finneyfrock, will share their insights on what one style will dominate the future of app development – or perhaps another approach is on the horizon?
