What Are Microservices?
What Are Microservices?
What Are The Benefits?
When your applications are connected but working independently from one another, your development teams are more efficient. You also gain the agility to scale a service without affecting the entire monolithic system. Maintainability and ease of deployment are two other benefits. You will see faster development with a smaller codebase for each Microservice (in most cases), making it easier to unit test, maintain, and deploy. Lastly, failure isolation is possible by reducing the effect to a single module rather than the entire critical application. In this way, you can remain operational. The benefits are real, but so are the challenges…
What Are The Challenges?
Key Microservices Best Practices
No matter which language you decide to use, the future of Microservices is leading us closer to server less architecture and greater cost savings and reliability. With more complexity required from your applications it is crucial to set your system up so it can be managed effectively without taking down the entire system when an issue arises.
Before we begin, we always do a complete assessment of your enterprise IT system(s).
First, we detail your current monolithic applications and legacy systems and help determine break-points that will, in the end, define your Microservices modules. The last portion of the assessment stage encompasses an evaluation of your strategic roadmap to outline how together we can best reach your long-term and short-term goals based on internal assets and best practices, so you have a clear picture of how your teams should be structured for success.
Microservices Architecture – Monolithic to Modular
Once a detailed assessment has been completed, your migration from a monolithic system to a lightweight collection of autonomous services begins.
This is known as the Microservices architecture. As the Microservices are identified and decoupled, we’ll help you decompose applications by business capabilities, subdomain, & services. This is also the time to refactor outdated applications or services that do not have natural separation points but should be seperated into more agile modules.
Integration, Testing, and Deployment
The great thing about Microservices is that it enables your development teams to work independently and if challenges arise, they do not impact the rest of the project.
When it comes to testing, however, there are multiple facets to consider. For example, because Microservices rely more on over-the-wire networking, connections and all contracts between the microservices must be considered, along with interaction between the various containers. It is a big step forward but when you realize the benefits you will understand the amazing value.
