Building Modern Applications Using Serverless and Microservices Architecture [XgridTalks Ep06]
Application architecture is not only the first step in building an application but perhaps the most vital one as well. Earlier, the entire application was built as a single, indivisible unit of code that shared resources which we formally know as Monolithic Architecture. However, modern applications tend to favor the loosely coupled or decoupled Microservices Architecture as the services are autonomous, agile, and rapidly scaled and deployed. Microservices Architecture uses Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) to connect each decoupled service. Another increasingly favored architecture is Serverless Architecture because it kills the need for server management. The servers used to build applications are managed and provisioned by Cloud Service Providers (CSPs) and are debited as needed. The options available to build your application are numerous. As a startup founder, before starting to build your MVP, it is imperative for you to understand what application architecture is best suited for your unique solution, what benefits are offered, and among those benefits, which cater best to your priorities. Join us in this XgridTalks episode as we discover all that and more from our DevOps expert. XgridTalks brings you all the exclusive industry best practices from renowned experts to keep you informed about the latest technology trends.
