Overview

An application based on micro services is composed of small, mostly autonomous components, that are built to offer a specific functionality. A cloud-native application is composed of multiple microservices that communicated through shared infrastructure, in most cases over HTTP/REST. The microservices architecture provides two major advantages: various components can be developed, deployed, monitored, and troubleshot independently, on a service-by-service basis, rather than dealing with the entire application. The second advantage is that a specific layer can be scaled independently by other layers.
