DevOps and microservices are hot trends in the tech world, but do they work well together?
DevOps tears down the walls between Operations and Development in order to create a rapid, automated process that enables the fastest possible development of software. Under DevOps, both operations engineers and development engineers are jointly involved in the entire software lifecycle, from design through the development process to support.
The microservices style of architecture develops complex application software from small, individual applications that communicate with each other using language-independent interfaces (APIs). Microservices break down complex tasks into smaller processes that work independently of each other. Microservices allow for rapid changes and short release times along with high scalability and autonomous teams.
