Optimizing Application Performance Using Microservices — Chimera Technologies
The most common problem today is the discovery of various new technologies without considering scalability, testing, server load, etc. This creates problems when using new technology to create something, send it to production, and attack it from the side.
The following are some practices that microservices should consider improving application performance:
Fast distribution of critical security fixes
You may encounter several security vulnerability articles in large organizations that indicate that they are being applied but not applied, The security fix is the first. Hackers damage this or that vulnerability. In fact, the distribution of post-fixes is a serious problem, largely because some products allow security fixes to be included in virtual fixes when the fix cannot be applied to a running system.
Finally, microservices can make patch deployment easier and faster. Many companies integrate the frequent release cycles of DevOps with microservices, instead of releasing once or twice a year, they can also release several times a week.
Simpler code structure
Another problem with a monolithic application is that it is difficult to know exactly what is in the executable software, which means that due to the contribution of the code from another group, the code of this group may be in one group Security issues. I may not know that
Microservices can help solve this problem because the code is broken down into specific executable files. Organizations usually have a development group that is fully responsible for all code running in a single service. A small team working on a common code base means that multiple teams work together on a large, monolithic codebase.
Another advantage of microservices is that they implement a defense-in-depth strategy. Microservices do not implement all the functions in frontline services but expand the functions. The rest of the application’s functionality resides in other services that, only, other executable files in the application, can access. This protects the functionality of the application from intruders and makes it difficult for them to access unavailable features.
Use a reverse proxy to accelerate and protect applications
If your web application runs on a single computer, the solution to the performance problem is obvious. You need a faster machine with more RAM, more CPUs, etc. The new machine can run faster on any server than before. The problem is that the system speed may not exist. Web applications are slow because the system handles various types of tasks: communicating with users through thousands of connections, executing application code, accessing files from disk, and so on.
The application server may crash, the memory block is replaced by the hard drive, the memory is insufficient, etc. The reverse proxy is located in front of the computer running the application and monitors Internet traffic. The reverse proxy only connects to the Internet; it communicates with the application server through a fast internal network.
