…software systems in this style.

This popularity is partly off the back of trends such as Cloud, DevOps and Continuous Delivery coming together as enablers for this kind of approach, and partly off the back of great work at companies such as Netflix who have very visibly applied the pattern to great effect.

Let me say up front that I am a fan of the approach. Microservices architectures have lots of very real and significant benefits:

While we are waiting for that epic article deeply comparing Google's Cloud with AWS, we have Adrian Cockcroft's highly hopped slide comparing the two .

Two weeks ago we released an Alpha release of Percona Server with TokuDB . Right now I am on a final stage of evaluation of TokuDB for using in our project Percona Cloud Tools and it looks promising.

What is the most attractive in TokuDB? For me it is compression, but not just compression: TokuDB provides great performance over compressed data.

When we look at what New Relic and Google Compute Engine offer together, never again will developers and ops people be in the dark about the performance of their applications in the Cloud.

We all know that consistency and reliability in the Cloud are absolute "must haves" when considering a Cloud Platform
