Exploiting Reality with Microservices in Production Systems

Part 3 of 3: The Enterprise Architect's Intro to Microservices

View on Slideshare

In our third and final part of The Enterprise Architect's Intro to Microservices, we again welcome Lightbend CTO/co-founder and Akka creator Jonas Bonér to continue where we left off in the six characteristics of Reactive Microservices presented earlier with a simple premise (in the spirit of Carl Hewitt): one microservice is no microservice–they come in systems.

As any Enterprise Architect will come to understand, to exploit reality we need to live and operate within its constraints––accepting that time is relative, information has latency and so on––in order to bend these laws of concurrency and distribution. Here we review the real-life needs of systems of Microservices, including details on how to manage:

  • Service discovery
  • API management
  • Communication patterns management
  • Integration
  • Security management
  • Data coupling minimization
  • Reducing the cost of coordination
