Micro-services are the future - CircleCI

Paul Biggar:

“So I just need to split my simple CRUD app into 12 microservices, each with their own APIs which call each others’ APIs but handle failure resiliently, put them into Docker containers, launch a fleet of 8 machines which are Docker hosts running CoreOS, ‘orchestrate’ them using a small Kubernetes cluster running etcd, figure out the ‘open questions’ of networking and storage, and then I continuously deliver multiple redundant copies of each microservice to my fleet. Is that it?”

I’m fascinated by the shift to micro services, but I’m wary of it turning into something like Paul’s cheeky description.
