Kudos on moving from a big application to smaller pieces, bringing in the age of distributed systems. But now, we face a new puzzle: How can we smoothly share data among these microservices?
The good news is that you're not navigating this path alone. There are multiple solutions available, each with its own set of advantages and disadvantages. Let's dive into this challenge together.
On our journey, we'll explore options like database sharing, service-to-service calls, and asynchronous communication. By the end of the talk, you'll learn how to choose the option that suits your needs best.Key Takeaways:
- There's no one-size-fits-all solution - each approach has its unique strengths and weaknesses.
- Context is key - what's a best practice for one team might not suit your situation.
- Don't limit yourself by just one option, it's fine to combine data sharing patterns based on your specific use cases.
- Your choice should be driven by analysis of characteristics and trade-offs.
