Not All Clouds Are Created Equal
When a Cloud Isn’t Really a Cloud
Many vendors can say their application runs “in the cloud,” but this isn’t always the full truth. There are significant differences between hosting a legacy, monolithic application in the cloud, hosting a multi-tier application in the cloud and running a system that can take full advantage of cloud scaling and resiliency.
A microservices architecture provides reliability and virtually unlimited scalability. Unlike the cumbersome interdependent components of legacy cloud solutions that had to be offline for updating, microservices scale instantly on demand, update automatically without downtime and provide fail-safe processing.
