As mentioned in my previous post, A path to microservices, adopting a microservices architecture is not simple. It requires many prerequisites to be managed successfully. With multiple services you quickly realize how many resources they use. Even the smallest service has a run-time footprint and consumes CPU cycles, even when sitting idle. Multiply this by number of services and you quickly get the picture. This post explores how this can be improved, and if it is possible to go beyond microservices to a serverless architecture.
