A microservice architecture provides a flexible but powerful model for writing distributed, API-driven applications that can scale to meet the exact needs of your application. By designing your application so that various important components can scale independently, as well as leveraging related technologies, you can build a robust and reliable architecture.
Applying the API Gateway Pattern
In a microservices architecture, you may have multiple types of front-end clients communicating with back-end services. These clients could include mobile applications, web applications, or third-party applications. The back end may be composed of many different services exposed over various protocols (SOAP+XML, REST+HTTP, JMS, AMQP, WebSocket, etc.). Clients may collect data from multiple services. In some cases, these services may come from legacy applications, and each application may have its own way of handling security.
Develop a REST API with Bitnami's Node.js and MongoDB Containers
For developers building cloud-native applications and APIs for Kubernetes, Bitnami offers a variety of containers and Helm charts to ease the process. These ready-to-use assets make it easier to develop and deploy applications consistently, follow best practices and focus on code rather than infrastructure configuration. Bitnami containers and charts are also always secure, optimized and up-to-date, so you can rest assured that your applications always have access to the latest language features and security fixes.
