Scaling your application servers is easy with microservices. The actual challenge is the data. Your database is your bottleneck and the biggest scaling and availability concern. Working with a large-scale distributed system entails many challenges in data processing: How do you handle distributed transactions? How do you scale your data beyond a single data center and handle the eventual consistency state that you may cause by doing that? How do you migrate data and database schemas without downtime? These are only a few of the issues you have to face when the world of microservices and large-scale meets databases. Aviran Mordo discusses the challenges and real-life use cases of handling data in a distributed environment, exploring real-world patterns used by Wix.com, which operates hundreds of microservices and petabytes of data across multiple data centers, as well as multiple clouds on a large scale.
