Demystifying Microservices: A Beginner's Guide

With ever-changing consumer demands, organizations face new challenges every day, and their tech architecture needs to keep up with them. The monolithic design was once very prevalent, but microservices architecture has replaced it. Monolithic architecture is bulky (container-like structure), has tightly coupled components, has many functional dependencies and lacks speed, agility, and concurrency. In addition, with every application update, the entire architecture needs redeployment. 

  Enter 'The Microservices Architecture' - the savior! The microservice architecture is service-oriented and consists of tiny, self-contained services that disseminate via an API. Microservice architecture design is easy to deploy and build, and size is not an issue here. Furthermore, there is no need to redeploy the entire architecture when a new update occurs.   

Core Components of Microservices Architecture  

Microservices Architecture is a collection of small, fine-grained, lightweight, autonomous, and loosely coupled services. Let us take a closer look at its core components for more clarity.
