Microservice Architecture, or just Microservices, is an eccentric software development process that assembles applications as a collection of small independent services, around a business specialization model.
With the modern software development industry witnessing rapid growth in startup companies, Microservices is stepping up to become the next big thing, the same way Agile took the hype a decade earlier. And, if you are one of the ‘want-to-be entrepreneurs’ and if there are any doubts or queries lingering in your mind, then read on and find how the microservice architecture aids to solve the issues most startups get stuck up with. Well, you might as well agree as to why this just looks and feels extremely right for you!
Well, to start, it is evident that different customers or users from different devices are always trying to use various services in a product, like searching for logs, building and generating reports, creating alerts, other management activities.
Since these services, or modules, are independent, these are separated based on their functionalities and distributed to individual microservices.
These categorized microservices run their functionalities and capture data in their individual databases.
The microservices communicate through a stateless server and perform operational aptitudes like automation, monitoring.
At this stage, all the functionalities are communicated to the customers or users via the API Gateway. Now, since all the internal modules are connected via API Gateway, anyone who connects to the API Gateway automatically gets connected to the complete system.
