'Microservices'

Microservices or Microservices architecture is the strategy of decomposing the application into discrete services which implement specific functions to design a highly flexible and scalable application. These services can be built and deployed independently. In other terms, it's an approach where an application consists of various loosely-coupled independent deployable smaller services.

These independent services typically have their stacks, communicate with one another, and are organized according to the business needs. Due to its modular characteristics, microservices architecture provides reduced development efforts. It enables frequent, rapid, and reliable delivery of large applications because codes can be easily updated as components are scaled independently.
