Microservices vs Web Services



microservices vs web services

Web application development has been on the rise since the beginning of this century but cloud computing has propelled it to a whole another level. The initial phase began with the development of monolithic backend and frontends but as these applications scaled up more components, module independence was sought by developers, zero downtime was sought by business owners and their customers. To cater to the demand web services and microservices were introduced one after another under service-oriented architecture for mobile and web applications. To know more about monolithic and microservices architecture you can read our old blog.

In monolithic the whole mobile and web application’s frontend and backend are closely coupled. The communication between application, modules, features and functions happens internally whereas in service-oriented architecture this communication happens via web service APIs. Monolithic applications are difficult to scale up as everything is interdependent so you have to make the adjustments carefully otherwise it will impact the whole application.

Microservices can be a standalone service or a function that has its own database and can be implemented and deployed independently of other services. A web service is a service provided from one application to another through the World Wide Web.
