"In Amazon's early years, a small number of relational databases were used for all of the company's critical transactional data. In the interest of data integrity and performance, any proposed schema change had to be reviewed and approved by the DB Cabal, a gatekeeping group of well-meaning enterprise modelers, database administrators, and software engineers. With microservices, consumers shouldn't know or care about how data persists behind a set of APIs on which they depend, and indeed it should be possible to swap out one persistence mechanism for another without consumers noticing or needing to be notified."

Great article in ACM Queue by Amazon old-timer +Tom Killalea on microservices. Permissionless innovation is a particularly strong point, as are the benefits for testing, deployment, debugging, and reliability. Don't miss the warning signs section too, especially if you feel those are things you're struggling with day-to-day, as they're helpful to look at when thinking about whether microservices are the solution.___"In Amazon's early years, a small number of relational databases were used for all of the company's critical transactional data.
