When to use Microservices

Sam Newman spoke with Martin Fowler about his newest book "Monolith to Microservices". One of the key questions was "When should you use Microservices"

"I could talk about the things that microservice architectures can give a lot. It gives you more options around how to scale up applications. It gives you this lovely property of independent deployability. When implemented correctly, it can really help isolate the surface area of failure, what some people call kind of limiting the blast radius, which can help make applications more robust."
