Scaling On The Cheap

I like this article even though I have close to no idea about the technicalities you are talking about. I do understand your general ideas about building scalable services and reducing attack surfaces, because I believe in such simplicities.

If I may ask, how different is your approach from adopting microservices, does that mean microservices are naturally more expensive? (I’m still trying to wrap my mind around developing web interfaces at a macro level and I’m not even a programmer.)
