Top 10 Reasons To Learn Microservices

It’s always positive to keep an eye on the new technologies, languages, and frameworks to revolutionize your organization. If you are still cemented in your cube messing around with codes in your monolithic framework, then you’re probably living in the past, where you have a small application and few employees to deal with it. Things have changed now! You need to take a step ahead and walk with the revolutionary technologies where Microservices is one among the leaders. 

Want to know where Microservices stands in the top trending technologies of 2019? Find out in Edureka’s career guide!!

Are you searching for the best reasons to invest time to learn Microservices with a view to become an architect and use them to develop applications? 

Here are my top 10 reasons to learn microservices:

  1. High Paying Jobs
  2. Use minimal resources with reduced the cost of ownership
  3. Promotes the best big data practices
  4. Reduces risk
  5. Provides granular scaling
  6. Provides high-quality code
  7. Offers cross-team coordination
  8. Flexibility to use various tools for the required task
  9. Provide continuous delivery
  10. Easy to build and maintain applications

Now, let me help you to understand these in more detail.

10. Easy To Build & Maintain  Applications

As and when the products built by developers become stable and are out on the market to be used by the customers, the team of developers splits into mainly the following activities.

  • Implementation of new features
  • Fixing Bugs
  • Changing existing features

In such situations, if the products are based on a monolithic framework, then each and every change to the codebase has to be passed through all the stages of build, maintain & deploy.

So in such situations, microservices comes as a savior!!

Microservices resolves organizational based issues, making it easy to debug and test applications. With the help of this framework,  continuous delivery, testing process and ability to deliver error-free applications improve drastically.

9. Provides Continous Delivery

Unlike monolithic applications where dedicated teams work for each discrete functions like handling database, maintaining server-side logic, microservices uses the continuous delivery model to handle the complete lifecycle of an application.

Developers, operations, testing teams work simultaneously on a single service performing activities such as building, testing and debugging.

This approach of development enables the code to be continuously developed, tested and deployed.

So, you do not have to reinvent the code every time you make a change, you can just use it from existing libraries!

8. Flexibility to use various tools for the required task

A microservices architecture encourages to use the most appropriate technology for the specific needs of the service. Each service has the freedom to use its own language, framework, or ancillary services.  Even with the use of such diverse frameworks the services still communicate easily with the other services in the application.

7. Offers cross-team coordination

Cross Team Coordination - Top 10 Reasons To Learn Microservices - Edureka

The traditional service-oriented architectures (SOA) involve heavyweight inter-process communications protocols.

But, microservices, follow the concept of decentralization and decoupling the services so that they act as separate entities. So, in Microservices Architecture each team handles various entities and then communicate with each other to handle different functionalities.

6. Provides high-quality code

Following the architecture of microservices, the complete framework is modularized into discrete components. This helps the application development team focus on one particular job at a time. So, this, in turn, simplifies the overall coding and testing process.

5. Provides granular scaling

If you talk about scalability, then microservices outperforms many other architectural choices out there.

As each service is a separate component in the framework, you can scale up a single function or service without having to scale the entire application. Business-critical services can be deployed on multiple servers for increased availability and performance without impacting the performance of other services.

Granular Scaling - Top 10 Reasons To Learn Microservices - Edureka

So, Microservices make it easy to identify scaling bottlenecks and then resolve those bottlenecks at a per-microservice level.

4. Reduces risk

Each service is a separate entity in the microservices framework, and this allows localized changes, higher confidence in the quality and end-to-end regression scenarios.

So, even if one service or component of the application is down, then, the complete application doesn’t go down. Instead, only that service or component particular needs to be rebuilt by the developers. 

Therefore, this reduces the risk of complete fall of your business application!!

3. Promotes Big Data Practices

Microservices own their private databases to collect, ingest, process and deliver the data to implement their respective business functionality.

Big Data Sources - EdurekaSo, you can say that Microservices collaborate with the data pipeline architectures to align the way big data should be collected, ingested, processes and delivered to handle small tasks in the form of microservices.

2. Use minimal resources with reduced the cost of ownership

Multiple teams work on independent services so that they can be deployed easily. This increased efficiency of microservices reduces infrastructure costs, minimizes downtime, optimizes the resources and makes the code reusable. So, with the help of these services, you don’t have to operate on extensive machines, but basic machines will do for you.

1. High Paying Jobs

According to Indeed.com, The average salary for “microservices” ranges from approximately $97,994 per year for a Software Engineer to $116,027 per year for Senior Software Engineer. Not only at an individual level, but, many hyper-growth companies such as Netflix, eBay, PayPal, Twitter, Amazon use microservices in their structure.
