Customers expect software to work and scale well. Traditional monolithic software is difficult to scale and optimize. Microservice architectures provide scalability and flexibility for teams of any size.
Managing the configuration of servers to ensure consistency with software deployments can be tedious. Containers offer the scale and consistency needed to run distributed software systems.
Your data is everything and managing it correctly is often the most challenging part of modern software systems. Databases must support scale and high availability while also providing features such as ACID and eventual consistency.
Application Programming Interfaces (API) are the foundation of modern distributed software systems.
