I think this article hurt some susceptibilities, I put a link to another article that will help you further clarify the concept of cloud computing, microservices and the difference between an API.


Of course, as many of you pointed, an API is just an interface, but traditionally, an application which exposes services through an API is developed in layers under a request/response approach; in contrast, microservices will look more like a network, and in my personal opinion, to develop microservices using a request/response approach is an anti-pattern. You will need to read the article in the link to understand why.
