What is microservice architecture?

Microservice architecture is a modern approach for constructing IT systems, where systems are built upon collections of single services connected with lightweight protocols. Each service represents exactly one business function, thanks to which, microservices are easier to understand, develop and test by autonomous teams.

Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)

The microservice approach evolved from Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) with features like REST (vs. old SOAP) support, NoSQL databases, and the event-driven/reactive approach.

The new approach of constructing IT structures as microservices has grown popular over the last few years. For many companies it turned out to be an excellent way to maintain agility, move towards a DevOps and continuous testing system, and adjust to changing markets faster than the competition.

Why develop microservice architecture?

Microservices are the supreme way to follow up with rapidly changing user behaviors and business environments. The future-proof character of microservices results from the way this modern architecture deals with even the most sophisticated structures. Within the microservice approach, structures with a high level of complexity are turned into small, self-sufficient and easy-to-maintain services.

This separation of services makes any system:

  • easy to understand and modify, despite the number of changes deployed;
  • able to coordinate separate teams or vendors in a way that causes minimal interference;
  • able to merge new technologies and innovations (new programming languages, etc.) without major risk;
  • meet scalability and high availability requirements that necessitate running your application across server clusters.

Benefits of implementing microservices

Extreme speed

Extreme speed

a decentralized development process allows development teams to work faster and test our innovative ideas safely

Domain expertise

Domain expertise

when each business function (like promotion, checkout, delivery) is split, development teams specialize, engage more and work faster.

Less is more

Less is more

when a single microservice performs exactly one business function, developers can build more efficient, clear and testable code.

Accountability

Accountability

when each team is specialized on a single service, it also becomes accountable for particular KPIs, providing SLA’s for their parts, etc.

“Almost all the successful microservice stories have started with a monolith that got too big and was broken up.”

Developing microservices for monolithic systems

Over 80% of existing, global IT systems are developed upon monolithic architecture. Some might say that these monoliths are too large and migrating them to microservices in one go would disturb the security of the whole organization.

It doesn’t mean though, that large monolithic system cannot be transformed with this modern, microservices approach and adapted to new business objectives.

Migration methods microservices

The first step is to design and develop API gateways for an existing backend solution. Having an enabled API opens a whole new way to begin implementing microservices, launch game-changing features in your monolithic system, and begin the process of turning your system into microservice architecture case by case.

    If we compare the development cost of a traditional Magento 2 webshop with the PWA demo, it would be 3 times faster to develop. Also, the page speed is insanely fast and it looks like Google is really liking it. We experienced that our pages and blogs are indexed really high in the SEO results (top 3) after one week of publishing a page or blog.
