Distributed systems are more unreliable
From the rise of service-oriented architectures to the now more common microservices, it is clear that IT systems consist of more and more components. Sticking to classic patterns for application integration means that systems become more vulnerable. A higher level of disruption or unavailability of one of the components immediately causes a disruption on the entire system. Based on practical examples, this presentation displays the issues that you need to take into account when setting up a distributed system.
