What is Microservices ?
Microservices is a variant of the service-oriented architecture (SOA) architectural style that structures an application as a collection of loosely coupled services. ... It also parallelizes development by enabling small autonomous teams to develop, deploy and scale their respective services independently.
Microservices architecture design doesn’t seem to be a buzz to ignore. This architectural framework is the core selling point for emerging startups like Docker, CoreOS, Infrastructure as a Service (Cloud Computing), and others.
These new products are easing out the development and deployment effort for microservices architecture based applications.
Docker is an open source container technology, which enables us to deploy several self contained isolated applications (or services) on single Linux OS as they are running in their own OS environment. It has seen a huge growth in the past year and its major sponsor Docker Inc. has been valued more than $1 billion, while getting fundings.
A microservices architecture makes more sense when we compare it with monolithic application design.
In monolithic architectural design we create a big cumbersome application with all modules tightly coupled inside a single executable, which is typically deployed on a web or application server.
