Building Scalable Systems

Reading Time: 7 minutes Building a Reactive System is all about the balance between consistency and availability and the consequences of picking one over the other. This article mainly focuses on consistency and availability and how they impact the scalability of a system. What is Scalability, Consistency and Availability? A system is scalable if it can meet the increase in demand while remaining responsive.It is consistent if all the Continue Reading

Diving Into Reactive Microservices

Reading Time: 4 minutes It would be beneficial if you understand the concepts of Reactive Architecture before diving into Reactive Microservices. You can read about Reactive Architecture here: Leaning Towards Reactive Architecture In this article we will cover transition from Monoliths to Service Oriented Architecture to Reactive Microservices by applying isolation techniques to the application. What are Monoliths? To start explaining the microservices it’s useful to compare it to Continue Reading

Message Driven Architecture

Reading Time: 2 minutes Here we will discuss the different types of messaging patterns used in Reactive Architecture. Evolution of Communication Since the real world is a perfect example of the natural distributed system, we can learn from it and apply its principles to build Reactive Systems. In the real world face to face conversation is synchronous communication. Over time letters have been introduced in the real world and Continue Reading

Reactive Microservices

Reading Time: 4 minutes In this blog we will cover transition from Monolithic Architecture to Microservices Architecture to Reactive Microservices by applying isolation techniques to Microservices Architecture. Monolithic Application To start explaining the microservices it’s useful to compare it to the monolithic application. A monolithic application is built as a single unit often comprises of three main parts: a client-side user interface, a database, and a server-side application. The Continue Reading

Reactive Architecture – Domain-Driven Design (DDD)

Reading Time: 5 minutes This blog explains techniques and building blocks of Domain-Driven Design which can be used to design a Reactive System. Domain-Driven Design is an architectural approach that focuses on creating software that solves large and complex problems. The “who can solve this?” and that “what process will they follow?” aspects are addressed later. Domain-Driven Design gets to the core problem earlier in the design and helps Continue Reading

Reactive Architecture

Reading Time: 2 minutes Recently I got an invitation to present a guest lecture for faculty of Engineering colleges in ABES college of Engineering. I came up with the most trending topic i.e Reactive Architecture. We talked about what is this buzzing keywords and why does it came into existence. Also What are the challenges one were facing and how are the real world problems being solved by using Continue Reading

Why Should Modern Businesses Choose Reactive Systems?

Reading Time: 5 minutes In the world of cloud computing, big data and IoT, system and application requirements have changed by leaps and bounds in recent years. Even the challenges being faced by developers and enterprises today are way different from the ones that they faced, say, a decade or two earlier. Find out why should modern enterprises opt for reactive systems today?
