What is Microservices Architecture?

Microservice architecture, or simply microservices, is a distinctive method of developing software systems that tries to focus on building single-function modules with well-defined interfaces and operations. The trend has grown popular in recent years as Enterprises look to become more Agile and move towards a DevOps and continuous testing. Microservices can help create scalable, testable software that can be delivered weekly, not yearly.

Microservices have many benefits for Agile and DevOps teams – Netflix, eBay, Amazon, Twitter, PayPal, and other tech stars have all evolved from monolithic to microservices architecture. Unlike microservices, a monolith application is built as a single, autonomous unit.

This make changes to the application slow as it affects the entire system. A modification made to a small section of code might require building and deploying an entirely new version of software. Scaling specific functions of an application, also means you have to scale the entire application.

Characteristics of Microservices

  • Multiple Components – Software built as microservices can, by definition, be broken down into multiple component services so that each of these services can be deployed, tweaked, and then redeployed independently without compromising the integrity of an application.
  • Built for Business – The microservices style is usually organized around business capabilities and priorities.
  • Simple Routing – Microservices act somewhat like the classical UNIX system: they receive requests, process them, and generate a response accordingly.
  • Decentralized – Since microservices involve a variety of technologies and platforms, old-school methods of centralized governance aren’t optimal. Decentralized governance is favored by the microservices community because its developers strive to produce useful tools that can then be used by others to solve the same problems.
  • Failure Resistant – Like a well-rounded child, microservices are designed to cope with failure. Since several unique and diverse services are communicating together, it’s quite possible that a service could fail, for one reason or another.
  • Evolutionary – Microservices architecture is an evolutionary design and, again, is ideal for evolutionary systems where you can’t fully anticipate the types of devices that may one day be accessing your application.
