Reactive Microservices Architecture: Design Principles For Distributed Systems

Jonas Bonér, Co-Founder & CTO, Lightbend, Inc.

Still chugging along with a monolithic enterprise system that’s difficult to scale and maintain, and even harder to understand? In this concise report, Lightbend CTO Jonas Bonér explains why microservice-based architecture that consists of small, independent services is far more flexible than the traditional all-in-one systems that continue to dominate today’s enterprise landscape.

You’ll explore a microservice architecture, based on Reactive principles, for building an isolated service that’s scalable, resilient to failure, and combines with other services to form a cohesive whole. Specifically, you’ll learn how a Reactive microservice isolates everything (including failure), acts autonomously, does one thing well, owns state exclusively, embraces asynchronous message passing, and maintains mobility.

Bonér also demonstrates how Reactive microservices communicate and collaborate with other services to solve problems. Get a copy of this exclusive report and find out how to bring your enterprise system into the 21st century.
