Microservices vs. serverless​

Tudor Ghiorghiu, Senior Software Developer

The current landscape contains a large variety of architectures ranging from monoliths, to service-oriented, to microservices to serverless architectures. When creating a new fintech product, a developer needs to figure out a solution design that will fit all requirements. At the same time we need to check all the boxes for characteristics like: future-proof, stability, security, cost, easy CI/CD integration, etc. Decades worth of challenges pushed systems architects to seek advantages over all these different solutions and we’re going to take a look at two of the currently most discussed solutions.
