Some of the most commonly heard reasons for why a company can’t move to the cloud are concerns around security: “Our data is too sensitive to put in the cloud.”; “We can only trust servers that are in our data centers.”; “We can’t trust someone else with the security of our system”.
In reality, a cloud-based system often provides a more secure environment than an equivalent on-premise solution. How can this be? Well, cloud providers hire highly experienced security experts to help build their security capabilities, so by moving to the cloud, you too can use these security capabilities created by experts without having to be an expert yourself!
Microservices architecture offers IT organizations myriad benefits and advantages over traditional monolithic application development, including a hand-in-glove match for cloud environments that more and more companies are adopting. So it’s no mystery that so many organizations are transitioning their application development strategies to a microservices mindset. But even in the realm of microservices, building and operating an application at scale can be daunting. Problems can include something as fundamental as having too few resources and time to continue developing and operating your application, to underestimating the needs of your rapidly growing customer base. At its best, failure to build for scale can be frustrating. At its worst, it can cause entire projects—even whole companies—to fail.
