Understanding Microservice Architectures

Learn why migrating from a monolithic system to a microservices-based architecture with the help of 47 Degrees can transform your business.

What are Microservices?

Traditionally, enterprises operate on large monolithic systems where components are grouped together into one giant unit. They are notoriously difficult to maintain, scale, or understand. When service-oriented and microservices-based architectures hit the scene, it quickly became apparent that they offered more than their bulky legacy stacks could handle.

Why Microservices?

A microservices architecture breaks your system into separately contained units, which work closely in tandem with each other but don’t require the function of another unit in order to maintain. Resulting in:

  • Reduced downtime

  • High Concurrency and Scalability

  • Fault-tolerance

  • Flexibility

  • Reduced maintenance

  • Ease of deployment

We’ll go beyond the buzzwords and structure an architecture that makes the most sense for your business.

  • Angie's List Case Study

    The Engineering team at Angie’s List knew that they needed to transition their site to a more modern, flexible and performance-based framework like Scala. Their rapid growth was not compatible with the current .Net legacy stack and they were finding the infrastructure to be inflexible, slow, and lacking the usability they required to move forward. When they needed specific expertise from highly experienced Scala developers for the transition, the team turned to 47 Degrees.

    Increasingly, organizations demand web applications that are resilient, interactive, scalable and even-driven to meet end user expectations. Reactive applications like these require sophisticated tools and middleware to build, deploy and manage them. The team at 47 Degrees has demonstrated impressive creativity and vision in this new space of reactive applications and we’re thrilled to have a working partnership as they continue to help build forward thinking web and mobile applications with Scala, Play Framework and Akka.
