Monolithic Architecture

Get an overview of monolithic architecture, along with its pros and cons.


A website or application created as a single, self-contained entity is referred to as a monolithic architecture. The website’s components, including the user interface, business logic, and data storage, are all tightly connected and interdependent.

This approach to web architecture has been popular for many years because it can be relatively simple to develop and deploy a monolithic application. However, as websites and applications have become more complex and scalable, other architecture patterns, such as microservices and serverless, have gained popularity for their ability to handle these challenges more effectively.
