MicroServices Explained Under 60 Seconds
Microservices are all the rage these days, but what actually are they?
This approach has many benefits over traditional monolithic applications, but can be confusing to understand.
What are microservices?
In short, microservices are a way of dividing an application into smaller, more manageable parts. Each service does one thing and does it well.
Microservices - also known as microservice architecture - is an architectural style that structures an application as a collection of services that are
  • highly maintainable and testable
  • loosely coupled
  • independently deployable
The benefits of microservices:
This architectural style makes them easier to develop and deploy, as well as easier to scale should the need arise.
The major benefit of microservice architecture is that it makes it possible for large, complex applications to be delivered quickly and reliably. It also enables an organization to evolve its technology stack. (You can also check our issues about MACH and Composable Architecture)
What is the microservice architecture used for?
  • website migration
  • media content storage
  • transactions and invoices
  • data processing
  • and, many more.
