Introduction to Serverless Microservices

It used to be that the big eat the small — today the fast beat the slow. Fast teams keep their talent engaged, ship faster, and beat the competition to market. Microservices let you increase your engineering speed and agility.

Using microservices allowed SoundCloud to reduce a standard release cycle from 65 days all the way down to 16. The two diagrams below show before and after timelines.

Length of deploy cycle before microservices:

How did they accomplish this? Microservices allowed them to decouple blocking portions of the development workflow, clarify and isolate concerns, and focus on component-level changes.

With the rise of AI / Machine Learning, microservices are more important than ever. As teams adopt microservice-oriented architectures, often serving powerful ML models, they build better products faster, outpacing their competition. Read More…

Meet the Algorithmia Team at the Strata Data Conference in NYC, September 26-28, 2017

Location: Javits Center in New York City
Date: September 26-28, 2017

The theme of Strata is “turning data into advantage”—here at Algorithmia, we help your team get the models from your data science efforts into production. Our team will be available to talk through the challenges you’re facing in productionizing your models or finding the right models from our marketplace to meet your project’s needs. Whatever your questions are, we’re here to help.

Quick Facts:

  • Meet us at the Algorithmia Booth #P33
  • We’ll be giving away Algorithmia swag—so stop by and say hi.
  • Get 20% off your conference pass by entering the Algorithmia20 discount code at the registration
