Choosing to use an open source stack makes the software development cycle more collaborative where the architecture, design, implementation and deployment can be completely customized. As per business requirement, the factors of scalability, maintainability and performance for the product stand to change with age and time. There are multiple types of architectures used but in generic terms the most commonly used include Monolithic & SOA based architectures.
Drives adoption and growth fast
Simpler handling with high performance
Simple development cycles, quick patches and upgrades
Large community to help and develop your application
Most commonly used tech stack. It is simple, stable, secure, easy to use and yet powerful enough to drive complex Web applications. Also, based on the data storage requirements the system can be used with different databases like PostgreSQL, NoSQL, SQL Server, etc...
Python, the oldest of the scripting languages, is powerful and works well in object-oriented designs. Django, which is a high level Python’s object-oriented programming framework encourages rapid development and simplifies deployment.
The Ruby Stack comes ready-to-run, with a complete development environment for Ruby on Rails, with its most popular “gems” making building applications fast and easy. It is a highly scalable, consistent, time-efficient, and cost-effective and promotes bug free development as it encourages TDD and BDD approaches.
The SOA / Micro services architecture is different from the generic Monolithic architecture and at present the SOA are being predominantly adopted by large enterprises and also business where a single product can be segmented into various smaller product apps communicating via an API gateway.
This allows to streamline processes, accelerate development and deploy without dependency.
