“Microservices and API Complexity – Inside and Out” on Iasa Global

The signature benefit of a microservice architecture is that its highly granular nature allows for a great deal of flexibility in composing applications. Components are simplified by virtue of a high degree of focus. The ability to replace individual components is enhanced by the modularity inherent in the style.

A very significant drawback to microservice architecture is that its highly granular nature can lead to a great deal of complexity in composing applications. Highly focused components can force service consumers to become more involved in the internals of an interaction than they might otherwise wish. Unwanted options can become more of a source of confusion than useful modularity.
