Event-Driven Architecture

Event-Driven Architecture (EDA) is a way of designing services to achieve loose coupling by communicating, for the most part, asynchronously through events. For example, an event-driven service can stop running without impacting other services, unlike a design based on synchronous API calls where failure in one service cascades to upstream services, causing timeouts at best or a widespread outage at worst. In this session, we'll introduce Event-Driven Architecture by comparing it to REST-based microservices architecture. We'll discuss the advantages provided by Event-Driven Architecture, and ways to manage the extra complexity it introduces. This will be a high level discussion, with architectural diagrams rather than running code. Join the Cloud-native Tech Demo session for a demo of Knative Eventing as a technology that enables EDA, among other cloud-native technologies.
