8 Benefits of Microservices

8 benefits of microservicesMicroservices are small, independent services that work together. In other words, these services are small, highly decoupled and focus on doing a small task at a time.

  • Follow the Single Responsibility Principle
  • Resilient/Flexible – failure in one service does not impact other services. If you have monolithic or bulky service errors in one service/module it can impact other modules/functionality.
  • High scalability – demanding services can be deployed in multiple servers to enhance performance and keep away from other services so that they don’t impact other services.¬†Will be difficult to achieve same with single, large monolithic service.
  • Easy to enhance – less dependency and easy to change and test
  • Low impact on other services – being an independent service, this has less chance to impact other services
  • Easy to understand since they represent the small piece of functionality
  • Ease of deployment
  • Freedom to choose technology – allows you to choose technology that is best suited for a particular functionality
