Summary

How do you detangle a monolithic system and migrate it to a microservice architecture? How do you do it while maintaining business-as-usual? As a companion to Sam Newman’s extremely popular Building Microservices, this new book details a proven method for transitioning an existing monolithic system to a microservice architecture.

With many illustrative examples, insightful migration patterns, and a bevy of practical advice to transition your monolith enterprise into a microservice operation, this practical guide covers multiple scenarios and strategies for a successful migration, from initial planning all the way through application and database decomposition. You’ll learn several tried-and-tested patterns and techniques that you can use as you migrate your existing architecture.

  • Ideal for organizations looking to transition to microservices, rather than rebuild
  • Helps companies determine whether to migrate, when to migrate, and where to begin
  • Addresses communication, integration, and the migration of legacy systems
  • Discusses multiple migration patterns and where they apply
  • Provides database migration examples, along with synchronization strategies
  • Explores application decomposition, including several architectural refactoring patterns
  • Delves into details of database decomposition, including the impact of breaking referential and transactional integrity, new failure modes, and more

Pretty good, but could be better

Overall, it’s a good book with useful information presented in an easy to understand manner.
Narrator is clear and performs well.

Although the book includes important guidelines and practices, I was expecting a more detailed approach with examples I can relate to.
As there wasn’t a deep dive into the way of breaking a database and library into microservices, I finished the book with a feeling I’d need to explore much more on topics mentioned in the book.

If Sam writes another book with a step by step migration of a real monolith to microservices that would make both this book and the value of both awesome.
