Airbnb: The Great Migration: From Monolith to Service-oriented

During my last Qcon San Francisco i attended a talk with Jessica Tai, she provided a detailed overview regarding the migration of Monorail, The Ruby on Rails Monolith at Airbnb to Service oriented migration Architecture.   

The Why…

Jessica explained the Why the decision was taken, which made the presentation really interesting. She explained the million-mile journey, migrating from the monolith to microservices.

The Solution… 

She explained about the solution that was found for the why… service-oriented architecture, or SOA, as a possible solution to help alleviate our pain. SOA seemed to be a promising solution to the pains that Airbnb was feeling.
