Benefits of Microservices Architecture

Benefits of Microservices ArchitectureBenefits of

Microservices architecture enables a system to be divided into multiple smaller, individual and independent services. Every service present in the microservices architecture is robust, flexible, composable, and complete. These services run as an autonomous process and interact with each other through APIs. Moreover, each microservice of the system can be integrated with different programming languages and platforms.

Microservices makes it efficient to understand, test, and maintain applications that are built with a combination of independent components. It’s an excellent solution for improving workflow and productivity to develop large-scale applications or projects. Besides, with the distributed system offered in microservices, development teams find it easier to modify code, remove a set of code or add new features.

Being a standalone module, service, or function, it has its own server instances and database. Not only that but it also entails load balancing capabilities that help the application to divide the workload into multiple replicas present on other server instances.

Advantages of Microservices Architecture

What are the advantages of Microservices Architecture? Still not sure if microservices architecture can be beneficial for you? No problem, we have compiled a list of all the benefits that microservices have to offer which will help you in making a logical decision in the future.

  • Microservices architecture provides high availability, resilience, reliability, and low latency(when application calls are redirected to the nearest deployment server).
  • The failure of one service is less likely to impact other parts of the application as each microservice runs autonomously from other services increasing its resilience.
  • In a microservice architecture, the availability of separate services is defined according to the uses of that service. That’s why, if one of the services requires high availability at any given moment, the required resources, containers, and the database will be allocated to that service efficiently while reducing any chances of crashes or downtime of the application.
  • If there is a memory leak in one service it will only remain in that service while other services will work normally.
  • The application usually has no downtime and its deployment process is smoother as it’s done service by service.
