Microservices are a thing now. It's official, and chances are you know that. Rather than enormous, single-piece architectures, microservices introduce a modular approach to building systems. You've read plenty of content on this site about how important microservices are, and how to go about building them.

Do you know why a team decides to move to microservices? I didn't either, but for the Soundcloud team, it was a matter of productivity over any technical reasons. 

In this article by Phil Calçado, a SoundCloud engineer, you can read the thought process behind the company moving to microservices for their "V2" site revamp. There's a lot about the Ruby-on-Rails app and web teams working together, and implementing effective process workflows. It's definitely a great read for anyone interested in IT transformations and microservices. 

The DevOps Zone is brought to you in partnership with Sonatype Nexus.  See how the Nexus platform infuses precise open source component intelligence into the DevOps pipeline early, everywhere, and at scale. Read how in this ebook
