What is Monolithic Architecture?

A monolithic architecture is the traditional unified model for the design of a software program. Built as a single unit, monolithic applications are single-tiered with different components of the program combined into a single program. For the code to execute or compile, each interconnected and interdependent component must be present in a tightly-coupled system.

Drawbacks of Monolithic Architecture
  • For every new update, the entire application must be redeployed 
  • Difficult to scale, the architecture lacks agility and innovation 
  • The presence of a bug in any module can impact the entire application 
  • Large code base makes it tough for developers and QA to understand the code and business knowledge 
  • Makes continuous deployment difficult 
  • Monolithic applications tend to slow down the start-up time

Refactoring Monolith To Microservices

Moving from a monolithic architecture to microservices can bring amazing benefits to your business including enhanced scalability, improved agility, reduced response downtime and independent team collaboration

microservice architecture
How to break a Monolith into Microservices

Our migration experts use a well-defined strategy to break the monolith into a microservice architecture. 

  • It starts with modularizing the source code followed by identifying modules with low coupling. 
  • The team starts decoupling these modules and iteratively applies the model to the rest of the application. 
  • The next step is to create APIs and build an anti-corruption layer (ACL) to isolate subsystems. 
  • To ensure  successful implementation, our specialists build an outer architecture-an ecosystem in which microservices operate in.

Container Based execution environment

Containers used with microservices deliver single-function, small modules enabling our experts to build agile and scalable applications. This eliminates the need to build and deploy a new application version every single time the team changes or scales a specific function. At Toobler, we are one of the leading cloud migration service providers, and we use Docker and Kubernetes to successfully deploy containerization, and ensure hassle free Cloud data migration services.  

What execution environment should your microservices applications use?

While there are several execution environments to run your microservices-based applications-Containers appear to be the best choice. Microservices and containers make a  powerful duo and to get the best of both worlds, they must be used in tandem. Providing a lightweight, scalable runtime environment, containers also offer a consistent software environment  for applications right from development to deployment.
