Microservices architectures are great enablers of rapid development and deployment. Microservices reduce dependencies among development teams, freeing them to act more autonomously and push out code more quickly. Your organization can also bring on more staff to form additional development teams because the independent teams can presumably work efficiently in parallel.
But along with these benefits comes the complexity required to manage, monitor and debug interactions among the dozens of microservices which have now replaced a single, monolithic application.
Crosscode gives your teams the insight and capabilities they need to navigate the complexities of microservice interactions without sacrificing the speed and agility gains provided by a highly modular, independent coding paradigm.
Reliable scaling is the Achilles Heel of applications built on microservices. With so many moving parts, it becomes increasingly likely to have a mismatch in your application that emerges as a bottleneck when you need to scale-up. Crosscode digs deep into your code to reveal the unknown and undocumented dependencies among microservices that could bring your application to its knees.
The intensive inter-service communications among microservices drives potential failure points up exponentially. Designing for failure has become a best practice. Crosscode’s analytics give you the situational awareness you need to understand where the failure points are and have a design which continues to function and degrades elegantly when dependent services become unavailable.
