Microservices – Micro Services
Microservices, also known as the microservice architecture, is an architectural style that structures a software application as a collection of services. This architectural approach enables development teams to align more closely with business requirements and develop, deploy, and scale services independently.
Microservices are created with specific key principles as goals. They should be: highly maintainable, testable, loosely coupled, independently deployable, and organized around business capabilities.
Additionally, each microservice is typically owned and managed by a small team. All these principles help ensure that each service can evolve independently of others, making the overall system more resilient and easier to manage and update.
The microservice architecture allows for the rapid, reliable, and scalable delivery of complex applications. Furthermore, the system’s resilience is improved because failures are isolated to individual services rather than bringing down the entire application.
