Serverless Diary: Your Way to A Successful Event-Driven Architecture. Event-driven architecture (EDA) can be seen as a way of wiring all your microservices together. The understanding of core principles of event-driven architecture and demonstrates how to use them in your serverless architecture.
Carrying on from where I left sharing my experience of implementing microservices in a serverless style in my previous blogs, the focus of this blog is to understand how to approach event-driven design. This blog takes the understanding of core principles of event-driven architecture and demonstrates how to use them in your serverless architecture.
Event-driven architecture (EDA) can be seen as a way of wiring all your microservices together. In this architecture, a microservice publishes an event when something notable happens, such as when it updates a business entity. Other microservices subscribe to those events. When a microservice receives an event it can update its business entities, which might lead to more events being published.
In the last decade, event-driven architectures have gained more popularity as more organizations and businesses have moved to the cloud. In the context of serverless cloud-native architectures, where the goal is to move to more managed services without worrying about manual intervention for scaling your infrastructure, I find event-driven architecture usage more compelling because of the following benefits:
Companies need to be thinking long-term before even starting a software development project. These needs are solved at the level of architecture: business owners want to assure agility, scalability, and performance.
In this article, take a look at the service mesh in the microservices world. The software industry has come a long journey and throughout this journey, Software Architecture has evolved a lot. Starting with 1-tier (Single-node), 2-tier (Client/ Server), 3-tier, and Distributed are some of the Software Architectural patterns we saw in this journey.
Microservices are growing as the default architectural design pattern. But why has it become such a point of emphasis? Find out here.
