Abstract

Everybody loves microservices, but it's difficult to do it right. Distributed systems are much more complex to develop and maintain. Over time, you may even miss the simplicity of old monoliths. In this session, we'll look at a combination of infrastructure, architecture, and design principles to bulletproof your microservices and make them easy to maintain with a combination of high scalability, elasticity, fault tolerance, and resilience.

This session will include a discussion of microservices blueprints like: asynchronous communications, avoiding cascading failures in synchronous calls, and how distributed NoSQL databases become valuable in terms of scalability and performance when combined with your microservices in a Kubernetes deployment.
