  5. Microservices: Pros and cons - Cassandra Shum (ThoughtWorks) & Rachel Laycock (ThoughtWorks)

    It seems as if the whole world of software development is jumping on the bandwagon to move to a microservices architecture. There are many good aspects to architecting a system in this fashion, but what about the downsides?

    In a knockdown debate, Rachel Laycock and Cassandra Shum take opposing sides on whether to implement services in a micro fashion and deliver zings and gotchas about the pros and cons of microservices.

    Description ———————- Distributed consensus is often discussed in terms of algorithms: Paxos, ZAB, RAFT, etc. But while the algorithms may be more or less mind-bending, for me the more interesting aspect of distributed consensus is creating systems that support it for the general use case. This paper, on Google’s Chubby lock service, is the story of happens when a system stops being a polite theory, and starts getting real-world use.

    To anyone who has worked in depth as a distributed systems engineer, Chubby is a beautiful paper. It is not a paper about algorithms and their limits, or a toy fringe system created by grad students to test a hypothesis. It is a paper tha…
