Traditional backends have been created using monolithic servers, where a single server may have several different responsibilities under a single codebase. Request comes in, server executes some processing, response comes out. The same server might be responsible for authentication, handling file uploads, and keeping track of user profiles. The key mechanic is that if two different requests come in for two different resources, it gets handled by a single codebase. This server might run on dedicated or virtualized machinery (or several machines!), and persistently runs over the span of days, weeks, or months.
More recently, we’ve seen the introduction of microservices as a popular architectural decision. With a microservices approach,
Their enterprise stuff (which is most of their stuff) is *** expensive as well.

For context: Nunes is one of Trump's top toadies in Congress.Ezra Cohen-Watnick, who worked as a top White House intelligence aide linked to former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, joined Oracle just weeks before its executives began writing checks to Nunes. Cohen-Watnick had arrived at the company under a cloud of controversy. During his time in the administration, New York Times had identified him as having provided Nunes with reports that showed former National Security Adviser Susan Rice had requested the unmasking of several Trump aides listed in classified documents. Subsequent reports by the Washington Post and the Associated Press called Watnick’s role into question, depicting him as the internal source of reports that were passed on to Nunes by others in the White House. That disclosure resulted in an ethics investigation into Nunes, who was eventually cleared of any wrongdoing.
The “unmasking” scandal turned out to be vastly overstated. And it raised additional questions about Cohen-Watnick’s qualifications for the job. He ultimately was let go from the administration in August as part of a staff cleansing by Flynn’s successor, National Security Adviser H.R. McMaster.
News that Oracle had hired Cohen-Watnick in its Washington DC office came in September. In early and mid-October, Oracle’s top officials began giving to Nunes.
