A microservices architecture is an approach to designing applications like DAM systems where core services are implemented as separate modular components. Each microservice fulfills a a specific task and can be replaced or upgraded independently of the others.
There is a lot of commonality between microservices and SOA (Service Oriented Architecture). Typically, microservices are more fine-grained and modular than SOA where several areas of functionality could be grouped into a single service.
Applications that use a microservices architecture are usually more scalable than those employing a monolithic architecture. In theory there are also less prone to failure since if one microservice stops, it should not impact the core application nor the other microservices.
