SNGULAR builds microservice architecture based on the distributed services that overlay our customers' core systems
Built on containers, they allow for the continuous deployment of complex corporate solutions while facilitating the development and innovation of an organization’s technological base.
The underlying principles shared by our architecture include:
Capabilities exposed as APIs and deployed in containers.
We will create different APIs for different purposes.
Use of container orchestration
Use of event/sourcing when possible
To respect the specific nature of each channel.
Orientation to platform capabilities.
Avoiding vendor lock-in.
Use of API Gateway to publish, secure, and control API calls between the different solution layers
Use of service mesh model for internal APIs.
Compliance with security regulations through standards and best practices
API access management, OAuth2, JWT, data encryption, etc.
Logging, monitoring, and monetization.
Strategy & Stack
Respecting corporate strategy and technology stack.
Main architecture elements
The points of interaction with users. Although the most common are web channels (a computer, tablet, or smartphone) and native apps, we also consider other interaction points like smart speakers or wearable devices. To adapt the user experience to the channel, it is necessary to review and customize the different domains' APIs and the data that the interface requires.
The single point of entry for all the elements that access the system to consume or publish information. The API Gateway will determine how applications interact with the APIs through access policies. The API Manager distributes, controls, and analyzes the APIs that connect applications and data sources/destinations.
Where the capabilities of the APIs are gathered. This is the central part of the architecture since it provides access for applications to use the different business competencies uniformly, while also simplifying the integrations and access to systems.
The layer that insulates the domain from the complexity of integration with different systems and elements of the organization. This layer provides integration capabilities by overlaying backend or legacy systems that are difficult to adapt or evolve.
The backend represents the systems park that the organization uses to secure its operations. It also includes all the persistent data that solidifies the organization's information. In today's competitive environment, a corporate backend can be made up of custom developments, on-premise, PaaS or SaaS, with multiple security schemes and different integration protocols (API REST, SOAP, message queues, even file exchange with comma-separated values).
