  1. Microservices architecture provides a solution to the challenges of monolithic applications by structuring an application as a collection of loosely coupled services.
  2. Transitioning from a monolith to microservices involves splitting different modules into independent services, offering flexibility in programming languages, databases, and scaling components of the application independently.
  3. Microservices offer benefits like continuous delivery, easy testing, fault tolerance, and better scalability compared to monolithic applications, making them a favorite among developers.
