Advantages of Microservices
- Microservices are self-contained, independent deployment module.
- The cost of scaling is comparatively less than the monolithic architecture.
- Microservices are independently manageable services. It can enable more and more services as the need arises. It minimizes the impact on existing service.
- It is possible to change or upgrade each service individually rather than upgrading in the entire application.
- Microservices allows us to develop an application which is organic (an application which latterly upgrades by adding more functions or modules) in nature.
- It enables event streaming technology to enable easy integration in comparison to heavyweight interposes communication.
- Microservices follows the single responsibility principle.
- The demanding service can be deployed on multiple servers to enhance performance.
- Less dependency and easy to test.
- Dynamic scaling.
- Faster release cycle.
Disadvantages of Microservices
- Microservices has all the associated complexities of the distributed system.
- There is a higher chance of failure during communication between different services.
- Difficult to manage a large number of services.
- The developer needs to solve the problem, such as network latency and load balancing.
- Complex testing over a distributed environment.
