Microservices and Serverless computing are promising cloud-based architectural models in the software development industry that have many advantages over previous technology models. The benefit of adopting these more novel models, however, is dependent on the volume of the application workload and the execution behavior. ScanMedicine is a new searching system dedicated to providing health care professionals, patients and researchers with easy access to intelligence underpinning health technology innovations. We present the design and implementation of ScanMedicine’s framework using AWS lambda functions and microservices. We incorporated a layered architectural style where each layer run on separate hardware and adopt different architectural technique.
Design and Implementation of Medical Searching System Based on Microservices and Serverless Architectures
The paper outlines the design and implementation of the architectural framework underpinning the Innovation Observatory’s externally facing ScanMedicine tool; a search portal to enable easy access to intelligence on global health innovations.
