Microservices Features

Application as a set of loosely coupled

  • Application as a set of loosely coupled

  • Set of collaborating services

  • Single Responsibility

  • Each service implements a set of narrowly, related functions

  • Services communicate using either synchronous protocols such as HTTP/REST or asynchronous protocols such as AMQP.

  • Services can be developed and deployed independently of one another

  • Each service has its own database in order to decouple from other services. No centralized database, thus so there’s data decentralization. Can use any database, thus enabling polygate.

  • Runs in its own process & thus can be deployed, upgraded, scaled, and restarted independent of other services in the application

  • Each service can be developed in any language that is best fits for the requirement – Polygate

  • Developer is only concentrated on a particular service, so the code base will be very small, and the developer will know the code very well.

  • Enables the continuous delivery and deployment of large, complex applications.

  • Better testability - services are smaller and faster to test

  • Better deployability - services can be deployed independently

  • Each service follows “two pizza team” principle. Each team can develop, deploy and scale their services independently of all of the other teams.

  • Each microservice is relatively small

  • Improved fault isolation. For example, if there is a memory leak in one service then only that service will be affected. The other services will continue to handle requests.
