Benefits of Container-based Microservices
Recent research says that both containers and microservices provide maximum benefits for enterprises. Due to the emergence of cloud transition, many organizations have been adopting microservice architecture. The microservice architecture helps businesses to connect loosely coupled services. As a result, the user can enable isolation, scale, and delivery toward complex applications. Sometimes, the level of complexity increases beyond the user’s expectation. Why does the complexity increase? The complexity level of the system depends upon containers. When both containers and microservices work together, it yields more benefits. The lightweight framework is comfortable for cloud computing. Many companies use this combination in order to have a lightweight framework.
The difference between microservices and monolithic services is that the monolithic services combine all connections in a single structure. But, in the case of microservices, the structure splits up into various containers. There are a few points to note regarding the combination of microservices and container management.
Though combining containers and microservices provide advantages to a company, there are many challenges as well. When combined, microservices have different intersection points with all the containers. It results in constant errors. In order to consolidate all errors, the system needs a strong framework. A strong framework helps to analyze scalability, reliability and other main factors to reduce complications. Also, by hiring experienced developers, the company achieves a robust framework on the combination of microservices and containers.
Methods like continuous delivery and continuous integration unleash business innovation. The combined microservices and containers enjoy constant delivery and integration. But, without establishing the framework and foundation, it creates further chaos. It is necessary to pay attention to the critical issues of the combined microservices and containers.
With the help of monitoring challenges, the businesses can fix the problems within a short period. Coordination between the microservices and containers is vital to ensure the success of the system. Also, microservices are prone to threats. A user can avoid those threats by adopting specific advanced SDN tools, using the best operating system, focusing on the orchestration of the system. Even using complex IP addresses may reduce the threats affecting the system.
Having a look at risk factors may help businesses to gain opportunities in the current trending digital world as they put forth efforts to achieve better efficiency.
