Microservice architecture is an architectural style that allows a system to be divided into smaller, individual and independent components. For a business, this means that the application is highly maintainable and testable. These components run as autonomous processes and communicate with each other through APIs. The components are isolated so if one fails, the rest continue to function.

Since these containers can be operated in parallel, development teams can work in parallel so changes or upgrades can be released faster and deployed independently. Microservice architecture enables the rapid, frequent and reliable delivery of large, complex applications that can be organised around a business' capabilities and owned by a small team.

There are so many advantages with microservices, however there are also some disadvantages, mostly to do with how complex microservices can get. Communication between services can be complex as an application can have hundreds of different services that all need to communicate securely. Debugging also becomes more challenging, as well as integration testing. A microservices architecture model also results in a large number of APIs, all crucial to the operation of the enterprise so interface control becomes mission-critical. For these reasons, for microservices to deliver the benefits it can, highly trained and specialised experts are needed to implement it effectively.

benefits of microservices
Improved Scalability
Because each microservice runs autonomously, it makes it relatively easy to add, remove, update, and scale individual microservices. This can be done without disrupting the other microservices that comprise the application. When demand increases, you only need to upgrade or divert more resources to the microservice affected by the increasing demands.
Better Fault Isolation
The beauty of microservices is that it is split up into simpler, individual components. This makes it easier to build and maintain applications and also to isolate and repair faults without having to shut down the entire application.
Greater Flexibility
When creating a microservices-based application, we can connect microservices programmed in any language and on any platform. This means greater flexibility to use the  programming languages and technologies that best fit the needs of the project and the team.
Better Data Security
Secure APIs are used to connect microservices. A secure API safeguards the data it processes by making sure it’s only accessible to authorised applications, users, and servers. This is particularly useful if your business manages health, financial, or other kinds of confidential information.
microservices with Interprit

The challenge is that Microservices are quite complex to design correctly and to build and so real specialists in the area are required. At Interprit, we have trained experts who are highly experienced in Microservices strategy, design and build.

We have worked with organisations of different levels of maturity to leverage an appropriate microservices architecture for them. We understand fit for purpose microservices architecture. Whether it is a smaller organisation or a larger, more complex one, we have the experience to design and implement the type of microservice architecture that is needed.
