Microservices are independent services that work together. microservices can offer an organization a wide variety of significant benefits
. Here are 10 of the possible benefits your project could see from the use of microservices:
- High scalability :demanding services can be deployed in multiple servers to enhance performance and keep away from other services so that they don’t impact other services. Will be difficult to achieve same with single, large monolithic service.
- Better scaling.Using microservices reduces the amount of effort required to identify slow bottlenecks in an application. It also allows for individual microservices to be scaled in order to resolve those bottlenecks providing for a better overall user experience.
- Output Flexibility.By simplifying the way data can be extracted for various end users, microservices allows developers to tailor the presentation of the data for different audiences easily.
- Real-time processing support.The publish-subscribe framework at the core of a microservices architecture enables data processing in real time to deliver direct output and insights.
- Efficient system optimization and organization. Scaling decisions can be made at a more granular level with a microservice architecture. You can select where to apply resources to meet your scaling needs based on smaller, more granular components, allowing for more efficient system optimization and organization.
- Freedom to choose technology allows you to choose technology that is best suited for a particular functionality
- Rapid growth facilitation.Due to their modular architecture, microservices enable a high level of code and data reuse, making it faster and easier to deploy additional data-driven use cases and solutions for additional business value.
- Cross-functional teams.A microservice architecture is typically organized around business capabilities and priorities. Such services take a broad-stack implementation of software including project management, user-experience, persistent storage, and any external collaborations so they can deliver services communicating via message bus; consequently, the teams are cross-functional.
- Outsourcing flexibility.While many business owners want to be able to offload work to third-party partners, they are often concerned about protecting their intellectual property. Microservices allows the business to segment off work for outsourcing of their non-core business functions without disclosing their core services.
- Team optimization.Due to their focused functionality, microservices allow you to create optimized teams by selecting members based on their specific capabilities allowing them to fully focus on the particular scaling and availability requirements of their assigned service(s).
