DZone’s 2017 Microservices survey saw more than half of respondents claiming to be using microservices now: 27% of respondents said they use microservices in development environments, and 26% said they are using microservices in at least some of their applications in a production environment. Another 36% of respondents have not used microservices in any of their applications yet, but are interested in trying a microservices architecture. Only 10% of respondents said they have no interest in experimenting with microservices at all, and less than 1% of respondents said they have tried switching to microservices architecture in the past, but decided it wasn’t for them.

Of the 53% of respondents who currently use microservices in one capacity or another, 81% said that using microservices architectures has made their job easier. And of all survey respondents, 75% said they believe that the excitement surrounding microservices in the current developer landscape is warranted–though interestingly, this sentiment is held slightly more amongst respondents interested but not currently using microservices (80%) than in the subset of respondents using microservices in production (76%) or in development (71%). Regardless, it seems that a large majority of devs are preparing (or have already prepared) to escape the monolith and see what it’s like on the microservices bandwagon.
