About our microservices expertise

Microservices are a technique or style of the software development process, where applications act as the lightweight loosy coupled services. Microservices architecture allows achieve a maximum of application or software development and deployment, making them stable and reliable.

Here at Alpacked we have proficient experience in building and integrating microservices architectures and its further optimization. Alpacked's dedicated team will help develop a product in a modern way allowing businesses grow and scale without binding to application limitations.

What problems do microservices solve

New way to build optimized for DevOps applications solves most of the issues that monolith-having may cause.
Great fault tolerance
All pieces are independent units which don't depend on each other. It means that in case if one unit stops working, the whole application wouldn't crush down.
Scalability
Easily add and remove the services and even tech stacks from your application as your need changes focus. No need to rebuild the whole application logic.
Easy integration
Deployment on multiple infrastructures, clouds and servers demands less efforts since microservices-based apps has higher compatibility.
Increase in time-to-market delivery
Agile development becomes even more flexible since you can deploy and update the application more often.
Increased accessibility
This is a "polyglot" system allowing dev teams use any programming language or the function technology they consider the best fit for the particular case.
Higher efficiency and time management
Developers stay more focused on their roles since there is no need to "disassamble" the whole application to unerstand how it works and how the particular system units are interdependent.

Microservices FAQs

What language do you use when building microservices?
We build microservices using Golang, Java, Python, Ruby, NodeJS. Java is usually the best choice for building microservices because of its annotation syntax.
Which framework do you recommend for Microservices?
It depends on the programming language you chose to build a microservices application. In the majority of cases Java is used, that's why we recommend to use it with Spring Boot framework.
How do DevOps and Microservices work together?
DevOps methodology as well as microservices are the most popular topics to discuss in the modern IT community. They both have a main mutual goal to have a great agilitiy within an organization, decrease time-to-market delivery and make the development process smooth.

While DevOps practices are focused on automation of the release deployment (i.e. by creating CI/CD pipelines), microservices-based applications help with achieving results thanks to it scalability, high availiability, deployability and flexibility.

That's why thank to microservices-based applications it became easier to adopt cloud, containers, serverless and other DevOps amenities.
Does microservices-based architecture best suit only for heavy highload applications?
No! Flexibility is a crucial criteria for any growing application. Furthermore, such appliactions are лучше для использования в клауде или для серверлесс. Плюс такая архитектура априори удобна в использовании и понятна разработчикам at the first glance.
How to decompose the application into units?
Usually developers apply a tailor-made solutions on application decomposition, but generally this process includes the following stages:

Business capabilities decomposition

Decomposition of the services particular for the certain actions (shipping service, catalogue etc.)



Че там дальше? я нашла такой порядок, но не понимаю

Another challenge is deciding how to partition the system into microservices. This is very much an art, but there are a number of strategies that can help:

  • Decompose by business capability and define services corresponding to business capabilities.
  • Decompose by domain-driven design subdomain.
  • Decompose by verb or use case and define services that are responsible for particular actions. e.g. a Shipping Service that's responsible for shipping complete orders.
  • Decompose by by nouns or resources by defining a service that is responsible for all operations on entities/resources of a given type. e.g. an Account Service that is responsible for managing user accounts.
