How microservices enable hybrid tenancy

Pete Brown from Pega published the article “Cloud: Hybrid-tenancy is replacing single and multi-tenancy“: Microservices is an architecture where each functions of an application are separated from each other and communicate through APIs and protocols. It differs from traditional software design, because the application functions are not located in a single code base. The advent of containers allows these services to operate independently from the core application code base.
