In Talabat we have a big monolithic application written in .Net using MS SQL database with a single read node. With continuous growth in traffic and number of users, we are facing issues in terms of performance, scalability and robustness. We have bottlenecks when it comes to releases; independent release of features is a pain. Moving forward, Microservices seems to be a clear solution for our problems.
In this article I will explain the approach Talabat used to design microservices and move to AWS at the same time. This might not work for everyone but for Talabat, it looks very promising.
