Performance Patterns in Microservices-Based Integrations

27

Almost all applications that perform anything useful for a given business need to be integrated with one or more applications. With microservices-based architecture, where a number of services are broken down based on the services or functionality offered, the number of integration points or touch points increases massively.

Systems based on microservices architectures are becoming more and more popular in IT environments. The rise of microservices increases the challenges associated with systems with multiple integrations. Almost all applications that perform anything useful for a given business need to be integrated with one or more applications. With microservices-based architecture, where a number of services are broken down based on the services or functionality offered, the number of integration points or touch points also increases massively. This can impact the system as a whole, since now overall system performance is also dependent upon external factors (the performance of an external system and its behavior).
