Microservices with Confluent

Available On-Demand

Microservices have become a dominant architectural paradigm for building systems in the enterprise, but they are not without their tradeoffs. Join us for our Online Talk: Microservices with Confluent.

What are microservices, and how do they work?

Microservices separate monolithic systems into a collection of independent, self-containing services that allow easier deployment, testing, and maintenance.

This online talk examines the historical factors that gave rise to microservices, the negative aspects of microservices that traditional implementations have imposed, and how event streaming with Confluent can not only address those pain points but unlock exciting possibilities latent in microservices architectures that lead to more flexible and evolvable systems.
