White Paper Published – Microservices: Patterns for Enterprise Agility and Scalability

Keyhole Software Architecture, Company News, Microservices, Tutorial 4 Comments

We’re excited to announce the release of a new, free white paper on the Microservices software architecture style.

Microservices is an architectural pattern gaining steam in the development community. A Microservices architecture addresses problems that modern enterprises often face, including responding to market demands, handling spikes in traffic, and being tolerant to failure.
