We have migrated monolithic applications to microservices many times, using a progressive and incremental approach.
We can help you split the monolith, or maybe just advice you during this journey.
Chopping a single large application (monolith) into microservices provides you two immediate benefits:
The following items are clear indicators that you are running issues related to scalability or agility:
|You are not releasing several times per week||The system is very rigid|
|After a deploy, the application has a long warm-up time||The system goes down because of a specific functionality|
|Developers find the code difficult to understand||You are increasing the hardware, but the performance is still bad|
|The code has too much dependencies||The system presents locks or race conditions|
|Developers are fixing conflicts all the time||The system is fragile and must be handled very carefully|
|Integration tests are a nightmare||Some processes eat up all machines resources|
|All problems are solved with the same tool/framework||Performance of the sytem in regression|
|“Pray and push” deploys||You need to scale because of a single functionality|
|New features take a lot of time||Unclear linking between components|
Having smaller pieces facilitates the speed of development and gives you peace of mind when it comes to testing new features or making infrastructure changes.
