Microservices Caching Strategies

Have you ever wondered how to do data synchronization between cloud-based services and on-prem databases? Have you ever wondered how to share a single database schema between hundreds (or even thousands) of microservices? Have you ever wondered how to significantly increase the performance of microservices? Have you ever wondered how to version relational database changes when sharing data in a microservices environment? Have you ever wondered techniques for doing large-scale reporting and analytics in a microservices ecosystem? If any of these questions intrigue you, then you should come to this talk. In this talk Mark Richards describes and demonstrates various caching strategies and patterns that you can use in Microservices to significantly increase performance, manage common data in a highly distributed architecture, and even manage data synchronization from cloud-based microservices. He also describes the differences between a distributed and replicated cache. Using live coding and demos using Hazelcast, Mark demonstrates how to do space-based microservices, leveraging caching to its fullest extent.
