Today most of the business operations are heading from local to global, monolithic architecture of existing apps especially the ones which are hardly meeting the needs and expectations. Have you ever come across the term microservice architecture? It is one of the most viable ways to stay and grow in the fiercely competitive environment.

Introduction of the internet has made the world a global village but only when someone had seated in front of desktops or laptops like computing devices. Now with the introduction of smartphones, the fragmented world become a global village in a proper manner by granting mobility and several other options for connectivity. Earlier in the digital era, only websites and web applications were used to serve as electronic shops and offered a limited amount of features and functionality. Plus, web applications were monolithic in nature which means acting as a single unit.

Monolithic Application Architecture

A monolithic application is quite responsible for all kind of activities/functionality starting from handling user inputs like HTTP requests, implementing domain logic, authenticate users, managing databases, and other communication in between various modules accomplishing different tasks, but tightly join with each other, etc. Thus, managing a minor fault or modification involved the entire application and need to build/correct it and deploy the entire system again with each time. It was not much bothersome until the size of the code of application remains within a limit that an IT team of business can work together.

The moment business grows, a number of users will also grow leading to extra services and functions attached to it and database inflated tremendously. Then came the UX era where expectations of a user in terms of performance, usability, and user experiences like fronts grow. It compels business or organization to integrate third-party services to meet all.
Its CONS include:

  • The monolithic application is a single unit with a single codebase.
  • It is highly complex to maintain, upgrade, and modifications.
  • Tough to implement agile development methodologies.
  • Demands for frequent redeployments.
  • Scaling beyond a limit is hard and impossible in some cases.
  • The system becomes unstable and insecure.
  • Resisting innovation and adoption of upcoming technologies.

On and all, the burdens over IT departments in managing monolithic applications has increased. And it’s time to make use of Micro Service Architecture among the giants to mid-level applications.
What Is Micro Service Architecture?

Mainly considered as an assembly or suite of small services glued together/ coupled loosely as a whole unit. In a layman’s language, a huge monolithic application can be broken down into several small fragments to work as independent units with all required power and privileges. Obviously, you will come across some advantages and disadvantages of using this, be it for startups or big businesses who aim to scale up to world-level operations.

Its advantages include:

  • Saves You from Touching Core Codebase-And since Micro service application is a cluster of several independent applications, tweaking the code of one small unit application never affects the operations of the rests of units.
  • Deals with Small Codebase- Each microservice unit deals with only a single concern and it has a little codebase and a few components to plumb like a database. As a result, developers have to deal with a small codebase in the case of debugging, crash, or modification.
  • Quick Scaling of Application- Scaling a giant codebase is a tough and costly affair, but when it comes to scaling a small codebase it is easy and fast. Scaling a microservice application is a non-intrusive and quick experience for a developer.
  • Fast Deployment- The majority of microservices have limited dependencies, so deployment becomes easy.

Its disadvantages include:

  • Can Create Communication Gap between the Services
  • Needs highly available, consistent, and distributed design of application architecture from the app development team
