"From the Monolith to Microservices: Lessons from Google and eBay"
by Randy Shoup


Most large-scale web companies have evolved their system architecture from a monolithic application and monolithic database to a set of loosely coupled microservices. Using examples from Google, eBay, and other large-scale sites, this talk outlines the pros and cons of these different stages of evolution, and makes practical suggestions about when and how other organizations should consider migrating to microservices. It concludes with some more advanced implications of a microservices architecture, including SLAs, cost-allocation, and vendor-customer relationships within the organization.

Randy has worked as a senior technology leader and executive in Silicon Valley at companies ranging from small startups, to mid-sized places, to eBay and Google.  In his consulting practice, he applies this experience to scaling the technology infrastructures and engineering organizations of his client companies. He served as CTO of KIXEYE, a 500-person maker of real-time strategy games for web and mobile devices. Prior to KIXEYE, he was Director of Engineering in Google's cloud computing group, leading several teams building Google App Engine, the world's largest Platform as a Service. Previously, he was CTO and Co-Founder of Shopilly, an ecommerce startup, and spent 6 1/2 years as Chief Engineer and Distinguished Architect at eBay. Randy is a frequent keynote speaker and consultant in areas from scalability and cloud computing, to analytics and data science, to engineering culture and DevOps. He is particularly interested in the nexus of people, culture, and technology.
