Microservices Never Miss a Beat

In today's fast-paced, demanding digital world, users have come to expect immediacy as a basic requirement – in addition to perfect functionality. Thanks to microservices, applications can now be constantly and seamlessly updated and improved. The microservices infrastructure enables scheduled updates to provide customers with new, fully functional applications on a continuous basis – made possible by the ability to turn on and off specific parts of their applications to restore and again deploy, all without any down time. For businesses needing to quickly react to shifting market trends and incorporate changes to fit business needs and user demands, microservices are key.

The latest buzz in enterprise application development surrounds the emergence of microservices. Although this term continues to grow in popularity, there is still more to be learned about how these tiny powerhouses work and how they are changing the API environment.

To understand microservices, simply look to the name: micro-services. It is a new way of app building that breaks up application services into smaller, independent parts and functions.

With roots in SOA, DevOps and containers, microservices are seemingly part of architecture components we already know, but are unique in their flexible nature. Unlike traditional enterprise apps that are built as a monolithic piece of software, a microservices architectural style is an approach to developing applications as a suite of small services, running in its own process and communicating with lightweight protocols. The independent services, called microservices, are themselves not married to a specific language or platform. They can be easily and quickly adapted or altered to fit evolving application needs and functionality.

But what else is there to know about microservices? How should they be deployed and where do they fit best? As microservices continue to lead an enterprise app revolution, here are five things you need to know, presented by Akana, a leader in API management.
