The adoption and popularity of the microservices architecture continues to grow across a spectrum of enterprises in every industry. Although a consensus on an implementation standard has yet to be reached, advanced design patterns and lessons learned about the complexities and pitfalls of deploying microservices at scale have been established by thought leaders and the development community. With Redis and Kafka becoming de facto standards across most microservices architectures, we will discuss how their combination can be used to simplify the implementation of event-driven design patterns that will provide real-time performance, scalability, resiliency, traceability to ensure compliance, observability, reduced technology sprawl, and scale to thousands of services. In this discussion, we will decompose a real-time event-driven payment-processing microservices workflow to explore capturing telemetry data, event sourcing, CQRS, orchestrated SAGA workflows, inter-service communication, state machines, and more.
