Growing customer demands have increased the need to build large scale and complex applications meeting the requirements of end users. Microservices have changed the way traditional and legacy applications were built. Unlike the monolithic architectural style, microservices architecture helps to bring business agility and improves time to market.
Microservices architecture splits the single application into a set of services, each running on its own but communicating with each other through APIs.
Microservices architecture is business-oriented, adaptable, and loosely coupled. Loose coupling promotes greater reusability and easier maintainability.
Software teams do not just want to leverage technology, but also go to market faster with minimum iterations. With conventional monolithic architecture, this is difficult to achieve, as it is time consuming and challenging to maintain.
Microservices architecture has settled this problem and makes it possible to build loosely coupled services that could be scaled, changed, and easily managed.
Moreover, microservices enable DevOps and help companies to focus on zero-downtime, continuous integration, and deployment. With so many benefits, microservices are here to stay for a long time.
