Microservices Architecture As A Large-Scale Refactoring Tool

Software systems have definitely changed throughout the years. Initially, large mainframes were used to process batches of jobs overnight for long hours to get the results that banks and big companies needed. Eventually, big systems were used to process different online jobs, which required large data centers with cold safe rooms to house their servers.
