Keynote: What’s so hard about distributed systems?

Sala: Sala 2 + Sala 3 + Sala 4

Horário: 9:00am - 10:20am

Dia da semana: Terça-feira


Many companies nowadays employ microservices as an effective way to break down their systems into smaller pieces. Microservices are a powerful way to chunk by functionality and/or team, evolving pieces of the system independently, and achieve better abstraction and encapsulation. But microservices come at the cost of running a distributed system. Distributed systems are inherently unreliable because they compose pieces that communicate over an unreliable network. In this talk, I will dive into some best practices that we have learned about what it takes to build, evolve, and operate such systems. I will talk about lessons and best practices around architecture, deployments, DevOps, Chaos testing, and evolving systems. I will also talk about more recent trends such as container orchestration and service meshes and why these new layers of abstraction are a natural reaction to the complexities of distributed systems that we will see continue to evolve.
