REST APIs are one of the most common kinds of web services available today. They allow various clients including browser apps to communicate with a server via the REST API.
Therefore, it is very important to develop and deploy web applications where we have control over the incoming HTTP requests on our servers. These applications run on servers and we are responsible for provisioning and managing their resources, which can be problematic.
- Servers must be kept available even when there are no requests to process.
- We are responsible for the availability and maintenance of servers and their resources.
- We are also responsible for applying the security patches on the servers.
- We must adjust the servers with the load: increase when the load arrives and decrease when the load goes down.
This can be very difficult for small businesses and individual developers to manage. This ends up taking us away from our initial mission: to build and maintain applications on a daily basis. In large organizations, this is most often the responsibility of the infrastructure team and rarely the developers. However, the processes necessary to support them can slow developments. You cannot develop an application without the help of the infrastructure team. As developers, we are looking for a solution to these problems and this is where microfunction.io comes in.
