Microservice architecture, also known as ‘microservices,’ is a development method that breaks down software into modules with specialized functions and detailed interfaces. It has numerous technical and business advantages, which is why it is getting popular even in the energy industry working with mission-critical systems.
We have already successfully completed our first microservices projects for our clients in the Hungarian energy industry, confirmed Zoltán Jacsó, the head of Astron’s Energy Applications Division.
Microservices address these problems of monolithic architecture by taking a modular approach to software development. In simple terms, microservices reimagine applications as a combination of multiple individual, interconnected services. This contributes a great deal to better system stability, which is critical in the energy industry.
Microservices also result in better-scalable, integrated systems, which in turn provide a better user experience. In the event of a failure, the whole system doesn’t need to be shut down.
Microservices also mean better code transparency and faster code deployment. It also makes system developments and upgrades easier and more cost-effective since the software built using a microservices architecture is, by definition, broken down into numerous component services. Each service can be created, deployed, and updated independently without compromising application integrity.
We are excited to use microservices for our clients, and we are looking forward to what the future holds.
