Not all clouds are architected the same way. In the past, service-oriented architecture (SOA) has been the standard development practice. However, in a cloud environment SOA lacks scalability, hinders efficiency and limits application deployment which is why many businesses are turning to Microservices.

What is Microservices

Microservices is an architecture that takes a large application and divides it into smaller components known as containers, allowing for each to be individually updated, managed and redeployed. Kubernetes, an open-source framework, is used to automatically managing these containers across different environments: development, testing and production.

 

Benefits of a Microservices Architecture

There are many reasons why businesses are choosing a Microservices architecture over a SOA. Key reasons being:

  • More scalability
  • Optimized performance
  • Improved availability and agility
  • Accelerated time-to-market for software applications

A Microservice architecture allows you to harness more of the clouds power. All that is needed to set up this architecture is a trusted partner, like Keste.
