Decomposing a Monolith: Engineering and Operational strategies we have gleaned from our experience at Endurance

Submitted May 6, 2019

Microservices are all the rage nowadays. But what are the practical problems of building a large application using such an architecture? Even more important, how do you change a business critical legacy application to microservices while maintaining uptime. At Endurance, we are currently transitioning a large legacy monolithic application to a microservice based architecture. There are several key issues around this transition that we have had to address. This talk examines each of those issues in detail and the solutions that we came up with.


Our APAC story in identifying and addressing the key issues around moving ~$70 million dollar monolithic Domain provisioning & Billing platform to microservices:

  • Need for micro-services

  • Common mistakes

  • Managing the transition

  • Scaling, Redundancy and Deployments

Speaker bio

Sudheer Kumar Meesala has spent the last few years designing and building scalable and secure web applications in the Finance and Internet industries. A large part of his job has included decomposing monolithic legacy applications into microservices. This has required a deep understanding of PostgreSQL, Cassandra and other NoSQL databases. Other key areas of interest are container orchestration, DevOps and more. He lives in Bangalore, India and spends far too much time in traffic jams.

He is an accomplished speaker and trainer; Co-author of “PostgreSQL 11 Administration Cookbook”.
