What are Microservices?

line
Microservices, or microservice architecture, are an architectural style of coding used to build applications as a collection of services. These services are highly testable and easy to maintain. They are loosely coupled and generally autonomous in most cases. You can deploy them independently, leaving the rest of the services unaffected. What we love about microservices is that they can be customized according to business needs and capabilities. The ownership of a microservice is usually under a small, autonomous team.

In the popular monolith vs microservices debate, microservices seem to be winning. Microservice architecture empowers rapid, reliable and frequent delivery of even the most complex applications. It also gives your enterprise the flexibility and opportunity to evolve your tech stack.

What is Serverless Computing?

Serverless Computing is a cloud-native development model in which developers can build and run applications without the trouble of managing servers. Servers still exist in serverless computing, but their function is abstracted from the app development process. Typically, a cloud provider provisions maintain and scale the server infrastructure. Codes are packages in containers for deployment.

Upon deployment, the magic begins. Serverless apps read the demand and respond to it by automatically scaling up or down as required. There is a cost-benefit here as well because most cloud providers are metered on-demand so if your serverless function is sitting idle, you will not be charged for it.

Why You Need to
Switch to Microservices

line
Microservices work across cross-functional teams and use the continuous delivery model to manage the life cycle of an application from start to finish. Developers, Ops, and testing teams work side-by-side on a single service which makes testing and debugging easier and faster. This incremental development approach is a major advantage over monolithic applications that have dedicated but disconnected teams working on discrete functions. This also gives you a chance to use the existing code instead of starting from scratch.

Besides this, microservices in Java and other languages give you the freedom to deploy the right tools for the right task. Every microservice can have its own framework, language, and ancillary services that best suit its needs.

Finally, unlike monolithic architecture, with microservices, you can optimize resources by working on independent services, empowering you to deploy, respond, and pivot more quickly. This also makes codes more reusable.

Benefits

Improved resilience

Decentralize and decouple your application into small, manageable services. Unlike the monolithic architecture where one failure will snowball into affecting more than one function, microservices have minimal failure impact on other services. You will barely notice it even when systems are down for maintenance.

Increased scalability

With microservices comes a far greater scope of scalability. Since each service is a separate entity, a single function can be scaled up without so much as touching the other services. This allows you to deploy critical business services on multiple servers for more availability and improved performance.

Faster time to market

The services are loosely coupled so you will not need to rewrite your codebase every time you want to add a feature or make any modifications. Changes are applied to a dissociated service only. This incremental approach helps in independent testing and deploying services, reducing timelines and making the whole process a lot faster.

Easy debugging and maintenance

With the advantage of independent services, small modules can easily go through continuous delivery and testing phases, making it vastly easier to individually debug and maintain specific services without shutting down the whole system.
