Evolution of System Design, Web-Services to Microservices. We discussed about one of many possible journey for evolution of ‘System Design and Structure’ in search of Nirvana of Independence, i.e. Independence of development, technology, deploy-ability, scalability.
In the previous article, we discussed one of many possible journeys for the evolution of ‘System Design’ in search of nirvana of Independence, i.e. Independence of development, technology, deploy-ability, scalability, and team structures (autonomous).
If we weave this whole journey so far, it is evident that effort and direction were always to achieve the following goals of System Design:
‘Microservice’, one of the most talked-about panacea for the above goals nowadays.
Let us understand what is Microservice.
Service means ‘an act of doing work for someone’.
Which is correct for microservices, similar to any other service-oriented pattern (EJB, Rest, Webservice..).
Companies need to be thinking long-term before even starting a software development project. These needs are solved at the level of architecture: business owners want to assure agility, scalability, and performance.
In this article, take a look at the service mesh in the microservices world. The software industry has come a long journey and throughout this journey, Software Architecture has evolved a lot. Starting with 1-tier (Single-node), 2-tier (Client/ Server), 3-tier, and Distributed are some of the Software Architectural patterns we saw in this journey.
For junior designers - those who have just started studying UX / UI design systems and those who have been working in this field for up to 1-2 years. The main goal of this article is to introduce you to the basic components of system design, to give you a basic introduction to this concept and to revise the material by demonstrating several examples of design systems that are already used by large companies.
Design systems are interdisciplinary by nature. They are built and consumed by designers and developers, therefore it is important for common terminologies to exist to support the communication between these two disciplines and other related actors.
Microservices are growing as the default architectural design pattern. But why has it become such a point of emphasis? Find out here.
