Microservices, or a microservice architecture, is a way to create enterprise applications, and it is quickly becoming the preferred way for many in the IT or DevOps field to structure their developmental system. From the web to the Internet of Things (IoT), a microservice architecture, hosted in a cloud environment, allows developers to get their service ready for almost any device. In general, this allows services to be lightweight, quickly deployable, and easily scalable, just like apps!
Yet, as with anything, the microservice architecture comes with its share of issues as well. By increasing the number of moving parts and independent services that need to work together, testing can become complicated, project management must be tight so everyone is on the same page. Further, latency can become an issue as services need to “talk” to each other constantly.
