Serverless Vs Microservices Architecture - A Deep Dive

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.

The top contenders for scalable solutions are serverless and microservices. Both architectures prioritize security but approach it in their own ways. Let’s take a look at how businesses can benefit from the adoption of serverless architecture vs microservices, examine their differences, advantages, and use cases.

Microservice and Serverless With Micronaut + GraalVM

Micronaut® framework is creating a buzz around cloud-native (microservice, serverless ) application development due to its enriched features and optimizations based out of modern Polyglot JVM — GraalVMoptimizers.

For GraalVM ** optimizers go thought Part1 of this series GraalVM — Byte Code to Bit Code.**

Why Micronaut® and what makes it the next level stuff as a framework for Cloud-Native development :

  • Natively Cloud Native
  • Micronaut®’s cloud support is built right in, including support for common discovery services, distributed tracing tools, cloud runtimes and leading vendors ( AWS, AZURE, GCP).
  • Ready for Serverless Development
  • Micronaut® low overhead compile-time DI and AOP make it perfect for writing functions for serverless environments like AWS Lambda, Azure Functions etc.
  • Fast Start Time — Low Memory Consumption
  • Reflection-based IoC framework load and cache reflection data for every single field, method, and constructor in your code. Whereas with Micronaut®, your application startup time and memory consumption are not bound to the size of your codebase. Micronaut® build around GraalVM. Micronaut features a dependency injection and aspect-oriented programming runtime that uses no reflection. This makes it easier for Micronaut applications to run on GraalVM.
  • Micronaut apps start in a tenth of millisecond with GraalVM!
  • Built with Non-Blocking Http Server on Netty
  • With a smooth learning curve, Micronaut’s HTTP server makes it as easy as possible to expose APIs that can be consumed by HTTP clients.
  • Design for Building Resilient Microservices
  • Distributed environments require planning for failure. Micronaut’s built-in support for retry, circuit breaker, and fallbacks help you plan.
  • Faster Data Layer Configuration
  • Micronaut provides sensible defaults that automatically configure your favorite data access toolkit and APIs to make it easy to write your own integrations. Supports like Caching, SQL, NoSQL, and different DB vendor products are readily available.
  • Fast and Easy Testing
  • Easily spin up servers and clients in your unit tests, and run them instantaneously with mostly auto-generated test stuff for main source code.
  • Reloading (or “hot-loading”)
  • Out of box excellent support of hot reloading, restart, and reinitialization with build-in JVM agent support rather than relying on classloader reloading or proprietary JVM agents like JRebel etc. It is an important feature to make the development cycle efficient and fast.
  • Refreshable feature
  • @Refreshable is another interesting scope offered by Micronaut. You can refresh the state of a bean by calling the HTTP endpoint /refresh or by publishing RefreshEvent to the application context.

How to Get Started Along Microservice With Micronaut

Create an app using the Micronaut Command Line Interface.

Installing Micronaut® manually comes with a super-rich & intuitive CLI that we will be using for the rest of the project lifecycle ( its power-pack CLI features add to developers productivity). We will be doing 3case studies with Micronaut® to compare and benchmark its potential relative to today’s Cloud-Native de-facto framework — SpringBoot.

_Case A : _ Micronaut ® _ app on GraalVM optimised JIT_

_Case B : _ Micronaut ® _ app on GraalVM “Native-Image”_

Case C : SpringBoot on openJDK HotSpotVM JIT — conventional way

Let’s get to the suspense straight-in with below depiction of different benchmarking results :

The Service Mesh in the Microservices World - DZone Microservices

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.

The Problem

The majority of software companies are moving from Monolithic architecture to Microservices architecture, and Microservices architecture is taking over the software industry day-by-day. While monolithic architecture has many benefits, it also has so many shortcomings when catering to modern software development needs. With those shortcomings of monolithic architecture, it is very difficult to meet the demand of the modern-world software requirements and as a result, microservices architecture is taking control of the software development aggressively. The Microservices architecture enables us to deploy our applications more frequently, independently, and reliably meeting modern-day software application development requirements.

Serverless vs. Microservices Architecture: Is This the Future of Business Computing?

Explore how serverless computing works and set a clear difference between using microservices and serverless architecture.

Serverless computing, which is commonly referred to as just Serverless, is a promising cloud-based technology model that has emerged on the app development and software architecture horizon in recent years. Trying to avail themselves of the huge serverless framework potential, many big-time market players have been quick to jump on the  cloud services bandwagon. Such software giants like Google, Microsoft, IBM, and Amazon already offer the customers to migrate all the local business operational efficiencies to be hosted on their flagship serverless platforms like  AWS Lambda and  Azure Functions.

Simply put, serverless architecture is an event- and request-driven tech solution allowing application developers to create actionable working environments in the cloud that have all the necessary computational resources needed for a smooth coding flow. This framework comes in handy especially when time is an issue and the tasks assigned are quite resource-intensive.

Moreover, while opting for  serverless services to streamline your application development processes, you can drastically improve your other business optimization initiatives along the way – like DevOps and Agile practices.

Why Serverless Architecture Is The Future Of Software Architecture?

Any business when thinking of scaling business applications in a cost-effective way goes for a cloud computing approach. Even leading technology companies like Quora, Facebook, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Spotify are also getting benefits offered by cloud computing infrastructures.

In this article, we are going to deeply understand the concept of serverless and how it works and why it is useful for your business.
