What Are Microservices?
Microservices are a modularization concept. Their purpose is to divide large software systems into smaller parts. Thus they influence the organization and development of software systems. Due to this modularization, microservices can be deployed independently of one another. Changes to one microservice can be taken into production independently of changes to other microservices.
Here Are Some Quick Benefits
- Strong modularization
- Easy replaceability
- Sustainable Development
- Highly Scalable
Now For The 5 Reasons
- Microservices can be implemented in different technologies. There is no restriction on the programming language or the platform for each microservice.
- Microservices possess their own data storage. A private database or a completely separate schema in a shared database.
- Microservices can bring their own support services along; for example, a search engine or a specific database. Of course, there is a common platform for all microservices—for example virtual machines.
- Microservices are self-contained processes. Bugs in one microservice can be more readily tracked as opposed to a bug in a monolith.
- Microservices communicate via the network. To accomplish this, microservices use protocols that support loose coupling, such as REST or messaging. This means you can create an API that branches out to all of your products.
