What’s the difference between the microservices diagram and the properly encapsulated monoliths >diagram?

The only difference is that the microservices architecture diagram is sharing the user interface across >the entire system.

Ehy wait! What about the DB? The properly encapsulated monolith uses only one DB, while microservices have each one its own DB.

This was comparing the properly segmented monoliths (3 monoliths that each have their own database) with microservices. So there's no difference in DB structure. 😊
