A monolithic architecture application is built as a single unit. This architecture uses a single, one-size-fits-all application. It contains both the front-end code and the back-end code. These applications are simple to develop and test. They are also easy to deploy and scale up when needed.
But it has many drawbacks such as slow startup time, difficult continuous deployment, less reliable among others.
In contrast, Microservice architecture splits the frontend and the backend. It makes it easier for your application to scale up. It also increases the reliability of your application in case of infrastructure issues. It has benefits such as it enables the service to be deployed independently. It is easy to adopt new technology with this architecture. There are also many disadvantages to using this architecture.
When comparing both the services, it is better to use the monolithic architecture if your application doesn’t have any specific requirements.
