Microservices are the trend of the hour. Businesses are moving towards cloud-native architecture and breaking their large applications into smaller, self-independent modules called microservices. This architecture gives a lot more flexibility, maintainability, and operability, not to mention better customer satisfaction.
With these added advantages, architects and operations engineers face many new challenges as well. Earlier, they were managing one application; now they have to manage many instead. Each application again needs its own support services, like databases, LDAP servers, messaging queues, and so on. So the stakeholders need to think through different strategies for deployment where the entire application can be well deployed while maintaining its integrity and providing optimal performance.
