Microservices are an architectural style that structures an application as a collection of services. These services are highly maintainable, and testable and are organised around different business capabilities. They are loosely coupled, have the ability to deploy independently and are owned by a small team.
Microservices architecture is well-suited to develop large scale applications, which are highly complex in nature rapidly or frequently. It also helps the organisation boosts its technology stack.
There are numerous benefits of the microservices, a few of them are listed below:
Microservices are primarily focused on simplicity. When the applications get splits into smaller, composable fragments, they are easy to develop and maintain. In fact, it makes managing the code less painful because each microservice is itself a chunk of code.
Microservices help in developing products instead of projects i.e. the team focuses on business functionality instead of writing core code. In easy words, the development teams are structured around business capabilities and not just on technologies. Hence, the services developed are adaptable in multiple scenarios and can be used in more business.
Microservices architecture overcomes the problem of productivity and speed. It helps in splitting the applications into services that are easy to manage and are faster to develop. Therefore, in this process, at a single point of time, different teams can work simultaneously building different services while earlier, one team has to wait for the other to finish it. Since a component can be tested individually also hence, microservices are easier to locate and modify, helps in boosting the overall speed of the application.
Every microservice can be written using different technologies. Therefore, it simplifies the tech stack selection by the developer focusing on the needs of your service. This architecture allows the teams to decoupled services which are developed in different programming languages to coexist with each other without any issue. On the other hand, it is also beneficial if someone is looking to scale up the application in the future. In a microservices architecture, you can add new features and functionality in your application peacefully.
Microservices are a boon for the divided teams. To develop a massive application is a complicated task and quite hassling, especially when you are working with extended teams that are distributed globally. But, this architecture makes the developers more independent to work autonomously and make technical decisions easily.
Microservices make the big solutions easy, increases productivity, provides flexibility to the developers, boost up speed and scalability and provides a unique modularisation with such numerous benefits, we at Quarks, use it in developing applications to provide the best services and products.
