The terms RESTful API and Microservices go hand-in-hand when building a microservices-based application. Nevertheless, they refer to very different things. The easiest way to understand the difference between RESTful APIs and microservices is like this. Of course, there’s a lot more to know about Microservices and RESTful APIs, which is why we wrote this guide.

To understand what micro apps are on iOS, we first must look at what a “micro app” is. A micro app is a small, precise, highly specialized application. It is designed for a single use case. They can run independently, or you can combine several micro apps in pursuit of a more complex objective. Some example use cases include reading from or writing to an enterprise database, or sending alerts or notifications when a particular event occurs.

A recent Vanson Bourne survey of 200 senior IT leaders found that 84% of enterprises have already embraced the benefits of microservices. The survey participants also agreed that a failure to adopt microservices would make enterprises less competitive in the future. The question is, why are microservices so helpful to modern enterprises? What benefits do corporations receive from using this architectural style? In this article, we provide an in-depth exploration of seven key benefits of microservices.

Serverless Computing is considered to be the fourth wave of computing where x86 servers, virtual machines, and containers represented the first three generations. With this new paradigm, developers can squarely focus on the code and without the need to deal with the underlying infrastructure. They never have to plan the number of servers, amount of storage, and the network topology of deployments. Since the platform deals with one function at a time, and functions are the fundamental deployment units, this model is often called Functions as a Service (FaaS).
