It is a good idea to go for microservices architecture if you want the application to handle the challenges of fast-paced, modern, scalable systems. 

Will microservices come in handy for a new project

The answer to the question of whether we need to implement microservices for a new project, there is likely to be no direct answer, even from experts.  However, the implementation of microservices and the success of this architecture model by market leaders of innovation such as Amazon and Netflix have had many followers do the same. They started delineating modules, turning all app contexts into microservices, and connecting everything using an open network. 

In these efforts, some were successful whereas others were not. In this article, we attempt to tell you to figure out the time when it is reasonable to start using microservices for your organization. 

  • Try monolithic architecture

The best way to start would be one that you already know, try the monolithic version first. The most obvious method use to restructure an app would be this one. All the logic in a monolithic application is concentrated on one single process. 

Monolith can be easily divided into classes, modules, and functions, and the structure is simple to maintain. However, this changes with input or transactional surges when there will be numerous changes that have to be brought about. Any tweak in the classes or modules will bring the whole system to a stop. A single mistake can bring down the entire system.

  • Analyze what the project outcome should be

In monolithic applications, scaling separate modules means changing the entire application. This is not a practical solution and goes out of hand as the requirements grow. To overcome the abovementioned problems of the difficulties encountered in maintaining a good structure in monolithic architecture models, a shift to microservices is observed to solve these problems comfortably.  Microservices architecture takes its roots in Agile basics.

In microservices, the basic system is flexible and based on independent modules each of them operating on its own. If this is the organization, then it becomes easy for implementing product extension and its related development much easier. The creation of a flexible system that is based on independent separated modules, where each operates on its own, makes product extension and development much easier. Moreover, deployment is also independent, each service is owned by a separate team, and the team has the freedom to choose the technology according to the business function that is performed by the module, all of these make for a faster release process during modifications.

  • Evaluate potential with microservices

When using a monolithic system, you stand the risk of disrupting the functioning of other modules, if you modify another one. These problems were earlier solved by the release of newer versions. However, in a microservices system, the software design is such that any microservice will bear with changes in any other module/service. 

A microservice’s most obvious advantage was the method in which the problem-solving aspect was enhanced. The methods for these are not limited to the talent of the development teams or the languages chosen for programming. the solutions are designed to enhance productivity.

Ultimately, the choice of microservices for a system means you are ready for change and you are open to making your product/service better in all aspects.

Monolithic systems

  • There is only one process and this makes the system simple
  • One problem can bring the whole system down
  • The whole system has to be brought to rest for making small changes
  • The productivity is better than microservices when the system load is low
  • The coherence is high because the single code and error processing also happens with the same standards
  • A single set of tools is used for the whole system
  • The interaction between modules is easier because of fluid boundaries

Microservices Systems

  • There are as many services as there are processes
  • The system continues to work even if any one of the services stops
  • You can deploy and update modules one after another
  • Works better than monolithic systems and productivity is high when the number of users is more than 100
  • Different commands coexist with different approaches
  • Each service can be made with a different technology that best suits the business function performed
  • Each service has boundaries and this means that maintenance becomes easier

Conclusion

Migrating to microservices ultimately depends on the nature of the project and the team structures that you want.
