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.

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.
