Today, we delve into Microservices. We see large projects working on monolithic architecture and service-oriented architecture (SOA). As we have cloud providers providing affordable cloud services, monolithic applications are migrated into Microservices.
Why no to Monolithic?
Monolithic applications are multilayered, working on a system, or scaled into distributed servers. The components are loosely coupled but are dependent, failure in a component could stop the entire application. Another disadvantage of Monolithic architecture is that, it demands the developers to know the system in and out. A change in one component or unit could lead to a change in other components and this change adds to the testing phase.
Microservices are the variants of monolithic architecture, each component is a Microservice that is an independent logical construct. These are autonomously independent services, that encapsulate business scenarios, or can be centered around the business scenarios. These are easily deployable and scalable and can also perform as an individual service. A migrated monolithic application consists of multiple Microservices distributed within the set of clusters. As each Microservice is an independent unit, it can be scaled, deployed, updated, or distributed without disturbing your application. These characteristics of Microservices make them appealing.
Why Microservices are Popular?
When Microservice Architecture is the right choice?
Some applications that are simple and have fewer components may not need Microservices, especially when they are interacting with each other and do not need outside references. Microservice architecture is used for complex applications with multiple components that are developed by different teams. It simultaneously facilitates the development process for the entire application.
Takeaway: Usually Microservices contain their own datastore and provide well-defined interfaces and protocols. They remain consistent and available even in the presence of a failure. Even if the machine hosting a Microservice goes down, the functionality provided by the service will still be offered by the application. Microservices are great and there is a lot of work involved in building the Microservices scalable application on the .NET core platform. For a more extended stability, Microservice architecture is worth having.
At BundleN, we experiment with stack combinations on our own time.
For potential clients interested in this stack, we can always give a demo of what we have up until that point of time. You can reach us at sales@BundleN.com
