Microservice Engineering

Microservices are taking the software engineering world by storm and we’re aimed at providing the best services on the market. However, we’re first going to discuss how we can successfully build agile, modular systems with the perfect Microservice building style. We’ve put together a comprehensive guide to give you a better understanding of who we truly are.

So What Are Microservices?

If you didn’t already know, Microservice architecture typically contains a selection of coupled light-weight services. However, each service typically implements the selective operations of a business capability. With that said, they are cohesive enough so that they can effectively allow integration, scaling, development, releasing, testing, deployment and even independent maintenance.

The overall design approach is completely tailored by our hands-on engineering team as we develop multiple single applications as a smaller suite of services. Each suite has been designed with its own communicating and processing capabilities and they are as lightweight as can be. As such, our services were built to serve in an automated environment. Hence, they require the bare minimum when it comes to management.

Our Microservices have their own defining characteristics. As mentioned before, they are independent and lightweight and easily coupled as a business unit. Our provided services were developed by small effective teams making them completely manageable and they are even responsible for functionality in single parts.

Additionally, our services can be deployed in a self-sustainable environment and they can effectively communicate with various APIs if need be. With that said, our services allow the perfect scaling of larger systems and they are perfect for enabling both continuous integration and delivery. Our services allow deployments and independent releases when needed. This mainly includes feature releases; critical bug fixes and they are even less risky.

A Solution That Grows With You

Another huge benefit of Microservice Engineering is the fact that it allows the roll forward or rollback options to allow service updates. Since these services are created by a dedicated small team, it’s quite easy to have focus directed to that one particular service. This simply allows for the continued growth and innovation of any particular service.

While there are many benefits associated with Microservice Engineering, there are also some concerns that are common within every company. In order to attain the complete success of Microservice Engineering, there must be some significant investment in order to facilitate the following:
*Replication – This involves the mechanism that is used for easy scaling and it requires metadata.
*Discovery And Registration – This mechanism allows service lookup, as well as the endpoint for each service, can be easily found.
*Logging And Monitoring – Creates logs from various Microservices provided and creates an in-depth report.
*Resiliency – This particular mechanism allows for automatic measures that act to resolve failures.
*API gateway – Provides client entry point.
*DevOps – Ensures that deployment and integration is continuous.

As we conclude, we have just looked at Microservice Engineering. We have also looked at the various benefits which can be achieved by our highly trained team and we’ve also discussed some typical industry concerns. So, if you’re interested in our series of Microservices Engineering, we’ve got you covered!
