History of Micro Services

I will be writing few articles on Micro Services. However I would like to highlight few points on why we needed Micro Services and bit of history about it.

Micro Services are a result of problems with two architecture paradigms.

  1. Monolith
  2. SOA (Service Oriented Architecture)
