Microservices is a new Cloud Paradigm software architecture style in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.

These services are small, highly decoupled and focus on doing a small task, facilitating a modular approach to system-building.

Properties of Microservices architecture:

  • ElasticA microservice must be able to scale, up or down, independently of other services in the same application.
  • ResilientA microservice must fail without impacting other services in the same application.
  • ComposableA microservice must offer an interface that is uniform and is designed to support service composition.
  • MinimalA microservice must only contain highly cohesive entities
  • CompleteA microservice must be functionally complete

Benefits of Microservices:

  • The services are easy to replace
  • Services are organized around capabilities
  • Services can be implemented using different programming languages, databases, hardware and software environment, depending on what fits best
  • Architectures are symmetrical rather than hierarchical (producer – consumer)
  • lends itself to a continuous delivery software development process

Cook Systems provides a full range of Microservices offerings including Consulting, Application and API Interface Development, MS optimized Quality Assurance and Continuous Delivery processes.
