From Monolith to Microservices

Monolith - expensive hardware taste , 1000-line of codes , no documentation , downtime is active | passive , new challenges , not so modern programming language , outdated software architecture patterns & principles .

Microservices - can be deployed individually on separate servers , lesser compute resources expenses , developed & written in modern programming language , add complexity to architecture , greatest benefits in scalability , seamless upgrades & patches , no downtime , no service disruption , more productive , cost -efficient .

Microservices are like pebbles whereas monolith are 1000 ton of boulder , that are easier to carry . These pebbles are loosely coupled microservices , each performing a specific business .

What is Container ?

  • Container Images :-A container image is a ready to run software package , containing everything to run an app : the code , runtimes , dependencies in a pre-defined format .

  • Container Runtimes :- It is the software that is responsible for running container .

Kubernetes Support :- docker , CRI-O , containerd .

Containers are an application - centric method to deliver high performing , scalable, application on any type infrastructure of your choice . Container are best suited to deliver micro-services .

Container encapsulate micro-services and their dependency but do-not run them directly , instead run container images .**

Container Orchestration

  1. Amazon Elastic Container Service
  2. Azure Container Instances
  3. Kubernetes
  4. Nomad
  5. Marathon
  6. Docker Swarm
