Before we get talking about the benefits part of microservices architecture over monolithic, let’s first understand what these technologies basically are. Amazon, Yelp, Uber, among many others, have emerged as global players in the online space and have been rendering their services to each and every corner of the world on the click of a button. This concept of online business would have never existed if some bright brains hadn’t thought of conjuring such ingenious applications. So, how these applications connect us to these business services and vice versa? Let’s take an example of Dominos. When you open the Dominos website, it shows a list of Pizza with colorful toppings and various sizes. Once you select the Pizza of your choice, the website takes you to the payment screen. There you pay for your delicious Pizza, and the process gets completed. During the entire process, if you have noticed, there are three elements involved. First, the browser server processes your request and connects to the Dominos website. Second, the Dominos website opens and exposes their home page ( user interface) Third, it fetches items you have selected using the application’s logic and proceed with the payment. ( Image source: Medium.Com) Just like Dominos application, any enterprise applications mainly involves three elements : Presentation Layer: User interface (consisting of HTML pages and JavaScript running in a browser on the user's machine) Server-side application: It handles the request made by users through its browser and processes the request accordingly Database: A storage space for storing and retrieving data. As per the request, it fetches the relevant information from the database. To develop this software or application a developer, designer, and tester team-ups and follow a standard procedure. For an extended period, they created applications based on Monolithic architecture, but in the last few years, this has changed with the launch of Microservices. The above image is an example of a Monolithic Application. Let’s see the benefits of microservices architecture over monolithic. Monolithic Application The term “Monolithic” means formed of a single large block of stone. A “monolithic application” is built as a single and indivisible unit. The application is built and deployed as - one application for all platforms (i.e., desktop, mobile, and tablet) using RDBMS as a data source. There are few challenges of Monolithic Application. ( Image source: n-ix.com) If the application is too large and complex, it is challenging to make changes fast and correctly You need to redeploy the entire application on each update You cannot scale components independently Error in any one module can bring down the entire process Difficulting in adopting new and advanced technologies Microservice Application The microservices architecture breaks it down the application into a collection of smaller independent units. Amazon, Netflix, E-bay, PayPayl, and many others have already adopted a microservices architecture for their application. Unlike Monolithic architecture, in a microservice architecture, each business unit has independent packages with logic and database. For instance, the billing/invoice service has separate logic and database, and so do the inventory service, shipping service, customer support service, etc. ( Image source: n-ix.com) Benefits of Microservice architecture over Monolithic Architecture Easy to Build: It is much faster to develop as the application is divided into smaller components Debug and Testing: The services or modules are smaller, hence faster to test Easy deployment: All the services can be deployed and updated independently Better scalability: It enables each service to be scaled independently. Continuous delivery: Since each microservice is independent of other adding features in one service and deploying to production is possible Easy to adopt new technologies: Developers are free to apply various technologies, programming languages, and frameworks for each microservice. Loosely Coupled: All microservices are loosely packed; hence, the changes done in one service would not affect the other service. No repetitive coding: It eliminates the need to build standard pieces of functionality used across the organization multiple times. For example, Authentication. It enables a high level of code and data reuse. Zero failure: Any error in a microservices application affects only a particular service and not the whole solution. Integrate individual components: Individual components are much easier to fit into continuous delivery pipelines Reduce development effort: Each development team can build, deploy, and scale their services independently. Also, it is easy for a new developer to join the team and start working on it. In case you plan to migrate your monolithic application to microservices or built applications based on microservices, you might need DevOps and Containers expert since the concepts are tightly coupled with microservices. Here is the list of top popular DevOps consulting and service companies. Sigma Data Systems IT Svit HashCash Consultants CoreQ Endurance Softwares Ulam Labs OpenXcell Algoworks The NineHertz Terasol Technologies Final Thought: Both application development methods have their advantages and disadvantages. For lightweight and small businesses, the Monolithic approach is recommended, while for large business involving complex business logic, Microservices are the best.

Monolithic Application

The term “Monolithic” means formed of a single large block of stone. A “monolithic application” is built as a single and indivisible unit. The application is built and deployed as - one application for all platforms (i.e., desktop, mobile, and tablet) using RDBMS as a data source.

  • You need to redeploy the entire application on each update
  • You cannot scale components independently
  • Error in any one module can bring down the entire process
  • Difficulting in adopting new and advanced technologies

Microservice Application

The microservices architecture breaks it down the application into a collection of smaller independent units. Amazon, Netflix, E-bay, PayPayl, and many others have already adopted a microservices architecture for their application.

Unlike Monolithic architecture, in a microservice architecture, each business unit has independent packages with logic and database. For instance, the billing/invoice service has separate logic and database, and so do the inventory service, shipping service, customer support service, etc.

Benefits of Microservice architecture over Monolithic Architecture

  • Easy to Build: It is much faster to develop as the application is divided into smaller components
  • Debug and Testing: The services or modules are smaller, hence faster to test
  • Easy deployment: All the services can be deployed and updated independently
  • Better scalability: It enables each service to be scaled independently.
  • Continuous delivery: Since each microservice is independent of other adding features in one service and deploying to production is possible
  • Easy to adopt new technologies: Developers are free to apply various technologies, programming languages, and frameworks for each microservice.

In case you plan to migrate your monolithic application to microservices or built applications based on microservices, you might need DevOps and Containers expert since the concepts are tightly coupled with microservices.

Final Thought: Both application development methods have their advantages and disadvantages. For lightweight and small businesses, the Monolithic approach is recommended, while for large business involving complex business logic, Microservices are the best.
