Virto Commerce Microservices architecture for ecommerce

Flexibility

Absolute flexibility in adding new functionality and connecting third party solutions.The best-in-breed approach allows using specific services tailored to a specific business needs. A business selects the needed services based on their value for the customer, not compatibility. Using unique and highly specific servicesis a guarantee of competitive advantage.

Scalability

Built-in scalability results in high performance that is required for perfect customer experience. One of the primarybenefits of microservice architecture is the ability to scale the front-end and back-end individually. Developers can extend services where needed without having to customize the entire platform.

Agility

Open for fast changes and alignment with your digital commerce strategy. The technical stack of microservices ensures fast implementation. Since microservices have a decentralized development process, it is easier for developers from different teams to collaborate to adjust the code base and bring new customerexperience to market faster.

Cost efficiency

Low total cost of ownership comparing with monolithic solutions. With the microservice approach, each microservice performs its own business function. You can only add functionality to the system that you will actually use, thus creating more compact and efficient technology stack. When using a monolith ecommerce platform, the cost of the system may include functions that are not required by the business.

Monolith Platforms vs. Microservices

Different architecture models fit different kinds of companies. Real microservices architecture with very high granularity fits for companies that need to make hundreds of developers work on the same software. Microservices allow splitting responsibility zones between huge number of small teams but bring additional operational overheads. Monolith might be comfortable for small custom projects where the only team do changes in the product. The space between these two edges includes many variations with different modules granularity.

Virto Commerce has a flexible modular architecture that allows developers to select the required granularity. Each module might work with its own database or and be responsible for a very small functional chunk, so it would be possible to extend the platform in a microservice way. The out-of-the-box platform holds subsystems and functional modules that are closer to Service-Oriented architecture and may use both the same database or dedicated databases. Some partners who deliver a platform to mid-sized companies prefer to work with it in a monolith approach just because it is more comfortable for them.
