Containers and microservices are powerful tools for solving many of the problems we face with modern tech. In this article, Dale Vecchio, CMO of LzLabs, explains why you should seriously consider switching from a monolith to a microservice.
Over the past decade, web-scale companies have shown a dramatic commitment to containers. In 2006, Google paved the way for this technological innovation, as engineers Paul Manage and Rohit Seith defined and implemented software containers. Almost a decade on, the tech giant released Kubernetes – an open source version of the solution that has proven invaluable. According to Google, it is now running two billion containers/week at a rate of 3,300/sec.
