Microservices best practices for optimal architecture design

The way server-side engines are structured has been altered by microservices. Microservices represents a distributed systems model, where a group of application components work together and deliver business needs. By following certain best practices, you can achieve an efficient microservices ecosystem. 

  • The Single Responsibility Principle – Microservices should be modeled in a similar fashion, just as with code, where a class should have just a single purpose to alter. Building bloated services which are subject to change is a bad practice. 
  • Use asynchronous communication – To avoid building tightly coupled components, try using asynchronous communication between microservices. 
  • Dedicated infrastructure – To get the best results, try isolating your infrastructure from other components. It is equally important to isolate the component infrastructure on which your microservice relies.
  • Proxy your microservice requests – With an API gateway, clients calling your microservices will connect to the API Gateway instead of directly calling your service. This way all those additional calls from your microservice and the internal URLs can be hidden. 
  • Separate data store – Choosing the right database for your microservice infrastructure is key, customising the storage to the data it retains and enabling it to be unique to your microservice only.
