Nowadays we are reading a lot about the next step in the Integration Architecture path. All the posts and things that we read about SOA and the benefits of the ESB as a central element in our infraestructure are gone and it seems to don’t have any relevance now.
Today, all we read are about Microservices and Devops like the next step or the right step to take. It is not the goal of my post to talk about the theory about Microservices. If you want please read about it in the Martin Fowler post. But, in a nutshell, we can think about independent service that run over a shared infraestructure (normally virtualized and container based) when you can put together different technologies to implement those services based on standards for communication.
