Etere 30.3 Moves to Microservices Architecture

Etere 30.3 Moves to Microservices Architecture

27 August 2020

From Etere version 30.3, there will be a big revolution, moving the product to Microservices software architecture which allows Etere to be easily maintained, tested and deployed independently.

The upgrade allows Etere to deliver software updates and enhancements to its users easily. Microservices is a software architecture style that structures the application as a collection of services. It comes with a host of benefits including easy organisation around business capabilities, very fast deployments and maintenance. In a traditional monolithic system, an application typically shares a common stack with a large, relational database supporting the entire application. In such a scenario, every component of an application, for example, the user interface, business layer and data interface, must share a common stack, data model and database, even if there is a more suitable tool for the task and for certain elements. In contrast, in a microservices model, components are deployed independently so it is possible for a stack of individual services to be optimized for only a particular service. With Mircoservices, it is now easier for Etere developers to make changes on software applications such as Etere ETX-M in an efficient and fast way. In addition, a single point of failure will not affect other aspects of the application.

With Microservices, services can be individually deployed and scaled. Microservices require fewer infrastructure than monolithic applications because they enable precise scaling of only the components that require it instead of scaling the entire application. The benefits of Microservices include very fast, frequent and reliable delivery of large, complex applications. It allows developers to deploy small changes quickly. As a result, it enables companies to have greater flexibility in adopting both technical and functional software enhancements.

Benefits of Microservices Archiecture in Etere
■ Codes in Microservices can be easily updated
■ Teams can use different stacks for different components
■ Better fault isolation, larger applications are unaffected by a single point of failure
■ Easy to understand and easy to scale as the services are separate
■ Smaller and faster deployments, with smaller codebases and scope, micro services can be deployed more quickly
