Not all clouds are architected the same way. In the past, service-oriented architecture (SOA) has been the standard development practice. However, in a cloud environment SOA lacks scalability, hinders efficiency and limits application deployment which is why many businesses are turning to Microservices.
What is Microservices
Microservices is an architecture that takes a large application and divides it into smaller components known as containers, allowing for each to be individually updated, managed and redeployed. Kubernetes, an open-source framework, is used to automatically managing these containers across different environments: development, testing and production.
Benefits of a Microservices Architecture
There are many reasons why businesses are choosing a Microservices architecture over a SOA. Key reasons being:
- More scalability
- Optimized performance
- Improved availability and agility
- Accelerated time-to-market for software applications
A Microservice architecture allows you to harness more of the clouds power. All that is needed to set up this architecture is a trusted partner, like AllPro Consulting.
