Microservices is an approach to writing software where applications are broken down into their smallest components, independent from each other.


DevOps is an approach to culture, automation, and platform design. The goal is to increase the speed and flexibility with which new features and services are delivered.


Containers allow you to package and isolate apps with their entire runtime environment—all of the files necessary to run. Containers are an important part of microservices deployment.
