Think of a microservice within a cloud native application as similar to a Linux process: it’s designed to do one thing very well, runs only when and as long as needed, and often combines with others to work together on data.
Since microservices run in containers, how a cloud platform manages relationships and resources among containers running the components of the overall application most definitely affects performance.
