Businesses must be able to provide high-quality, innovative services to clients quickly in order to meet market demand. That can be difficult if an organization’s internal architecture doesn’t offer the needed agility and speed. The tightly coupled nature of monolithic architecture can block an IT team’s ability to make changes, separate team responsibilities, and perform frequent deployments. Microservices can provide a better alternative.

In microservices architecture, an application is built as a collection of separate, independently deployable services that are loosely coupled and more easily maintained.

In this article, you’ll learn about the benefits of switching to microservices and what factors to consider as you migrate your monolithic application toward microservices architecture.

Why Use Microservices Architecture?

Structuring your application as microservices offers you a range of benefits. AWS cites several of them, below.

Microservice architecture is an architecture where an application is split into separate services, and each service is run and managed independently. In a microservice architecture, every service is focused on handling one major function and is solely responsible for its own data management.

Microservice architecture is often recommended for larger applications because it allows services to be managed by dedicated teams. Testing and deployment also become easier, as they can be carried out independently for each service without affecting the overall application.

In this article, you'll learn what a microservice architecture is and when to use it, and about workflow orchestration, its benefits, and how it can be utilized in a microservice architecture. You'll also look at an example use case of microservice architecture so you can better understand the benefits, strengths, and weaknesses of this style of architecture.

A 2020 survey by the research and advisory firm Gartner has highlighted the rapid pace of innovation in cloud computing. According to the research, forty percent of enterprise solutions will host their applications on cloud infrastructure by 2023. This shifting trend will cause an increased demand for cloud services, as well as for hybrid cloud architecture.

The hybrid cloud is gaining popularity as enterprise IT leaders seek flexible, scalable options that increase cost efficiency while maintaining control over enterprise data and information. Many organizations combine on-premise infrastructure with private/public cloud resources to meet these needs.

But without the right strategy, hybrid clouds can pose a number of challenges. Through a hypothetical case study, this article will help you learn about the strengths and limitations of hybrid cloud architecture.
